Trade body FIBA is to hold its Annual Conference 2021 on 20 January.
The conference will outline FIBA’s strategy for the future, as well as launching additional benefits for its members and partners.
The virtual event technology available to FIBA allows the conference to be significantly different with a variety of sessions including plenary presentations and debates, alongside exhibition rooms where delegates can meet with lenders and other partners, as well as breakout areas to discuss matters on a one-to-one basis.
Interbay Commercial, Market Financial Solutions, Roma Finance and CG & Co have already agreed to sponsor the event.
Adam Tyler (pictured), FIBA’s executive chairman, said: “Having run a successful series of webinars with over 1,000 brokers engaging with just one series during lockdown, we are confident that our conference will attract plenty of interest from delegates who either are or want to be involved in the specialist property finance space.
“With our membership having increased by another 50% in 2020 as well, we are clearly gaining the approval of significant numbers of advisers across the Industry.
“These are uncertain times for all of us. FIBA offers the whole specialist property finance community a home within which everyone can benefit from features, including exclusive lender arrangements, a dedicated FIBA PI block policy, FIBA TV and our collaboration with Knowledge Bank, among many other benefits.
“Whilst the virtual environment cannot replace the value of human to human interaction, it will be great to discuss our industry, see who is going to feature in 2021, meet up with old friends and listen to some different speakers, combining all of this with what is going to be our very positive outlook at the start of a brand new year.”
