Asset Finance Solutions kicked-off the countdown to Christmas, hosting their annual Meet the Funders Expo at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Birmingham on Monday 4th December.

Now in its fourth successive year, this unmissable event is a key date in the asset finance calendar bringing together our major Funder partners, Franchisees and staff for a full afternoon of networking in warm and welcoming surroundings.

The Expo was once again a packed event, with approx. 150 delegates in attendance and exhibitors from 30 of our funder panel.  Feedback on the day was incredibly positive, the Funders valuing the opportunity to catch up with established Franchisees and also meet and develop relationships with our new network members.

AFS would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the continued support and contribution from our Funders, without which the event would not be such a resounding success year on year.

As is tradition, following the close of the Expo everyone retired to the bar for a well-earned Christmas drink and to contest the now infamous and eagerly awaited Christmas Jumper competition.  Once again, the rivalry was fierce, with any number of bells, twinkly lights, elf ears and antlers on show.

After much deliberation the judges awarded this year’s coveted prize by unanimous decision to our very own Chris Mangle, for his homemade homage to Rudolph the Reindeer!

The customary curry was a jovial affair and a great way to round up the whole day and to celebrate the end of yet another extremely successful year.
