New for 2022 – dedicated workshops for asset finance specialists

Asset Finance Connect is ringing the changes to our highly successful asset, auto and equipment finance sessions with up to four new roundtables sessions dedicated to meeting the specific needs of specific important groups within our three communities who may want to discuss specialist topics which will not necessarily appeal to all of the broader communities we serve. These workshop groups might include chief technology officers wishing to meet to consider technical issues around the use emerging technologies in asset finance or heads of compliance wanting to discuss the detail in emerging regulation for example.

If you are a professional services firm (strategy consultants, lawyers or advisory firm) with the appetite to run dedicated roundtable sessions for up to 40 CTOs, heads of compliance or other specialist target audiences then we want to hear from you. We’re offering roundtable rooms for your dedicated use; and complimentary places for your target audience. This is a trial opportunity which we will use to identify partners to work with in our future events.
