Manchester Expo receives CPD accreditation

Mortgage Business Expo Manchester 2012 has achieved CPD (Continuous Professional Development) Event Accreditation from the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).

This is the first time MBE Manchester has achieved such accreditation and means all delegates are now able to include their attendance at the event as part of their CII CPD requirement should they consider it relevant to their professional development needs.

MBE Manchester takes place on 23 May 2012 at the Lancashire County Cricket Club.

James Prosser, MBE Manchester 2012 show director, said: “The announcement of CII CPD accreditation for MBE Manchester is a significant achievement for us and is formal proof of the quality of the event we are now putting on, particularly the strength of our seminar programme.

“Delegates now know they can attend the exhibition on the 23rd May and include their visit as part of their CII CPD requirements. The seminar programme put together by AMI this year is particularly strong and at its centrepiece will be the FSA’s speech giving the industry its first chance to learn of the regulator’s thinking following the last Mortgage Market Review (MMR) consultation.

“On top of this we have assembled an array of industry experts to tackle a variety of subjects including the current state of the housing market and the economy, how equity release fits into this landscape, an update from a variety of lender representatives, a look at the protection sector and a seminar detailing the progress that is being made in tackling mortgage fraud.”
