Financial Services Expo has confirmed plans to hold its first show in Birmingham in November this year.

FSE Birmingham will launch at the end of the year and will be providing the entire advisory community in the Midlands and surrounding areas with a premier event complete with a full seminar programme and a wide range of exhibitors to meet with.

Front Events, the team behind FSE, will be announcing the exact date and venue for the event shortly.

It has already secured significant interest in FSE Birmingham from lenders, providers, and a range of other potential exhibitors.

FSE Birmingham is the latest addition to the FSE event roster with FSE Glasgow having been held earlier this year, FSE Manchester taking place on 18 May, FSE Cardiff on 29 June, and FSE London returning on 14 September.

James Prosser, managing director of Front Events, said: “The expansion of the FSE range of exhibitions across the country has always been a key focus of the business, and we are therefore extremely pleased to be announcing the fifth show in our roster, with the launch of FSE Birmingham in November.

“We felt that catering for the active and vibrant financial services community across the Midlands should be our next step and therefore it made perfect sense to house the newest FSE event in England’s second city.

“While many advisers based there are willing to travel, it seems to make perfect sense to provide an exhibition right on their doorstep which they can support and that both national and regional exhibitors can get the most out of.

“The response we have already received appears to show that not only is there space for another FSE event but that Birmingham will prove to be a popular choice.

“November is traditionally a busy time for the advisory profession and we want to ensure we give them good reason to take time out of their busy schedules in order to attend a quality event.

“As always, we are committed to delivering this and we are looking forward to launching FSE Birmingham in November.”

Registration for visiting FSE Manchester is now open, with the event once again taking place at Emirates Old Trafford, overlooking the pitch at the Lancashire County Cricket Club.

Alongside a full range of seminar sessions across three separate areas, it offers delegates access to the biggest range of lenders, providers and distributors at any event in the North West, all actively looking to build relationships with the adviser community.

Harpal Singh, managing director at Broker Conveyancing, said: “We have been a strong supporter of FSE since James and the team launched the first London event back in 2013 and, from our perspective, it certainly makes sense to broaden the number of venues and to choose Birmingham as the next event centre.

“Given its location, and the wealth of financial services expertise both within the city and close proximity, we are certain this will be well-supported by exhibitors and well-attended by delegates.

“We’re looking forward to being in Birmingham and showing our proposition to both existing and new users.”

Adrian Moloney, sales director at OneSavings Bank, added: “Operating a truly national business, we believe it’s vitally important that events like FSE cater for as many different regions and adviser communities as possible.

“Those who have attended, and exhibited at one of the FSE events over the past few years, will know that FSE Birmingham will be a high quality day featuring incisive seminars and access to a range of exhibitors who are dedicated to the intermediary sector.

“We always come away from an FSE event having strengthened existing relationships and building new ones. We’re therefore looking forward to taking a full part in FSE Birmingham.”
