The National Landlords Association (NLA) exhibited at the Landlord and Letting Show at the Barbican on 11 and 12 September 2013, providing a great opportunity to our current and prospective members to engage with the association face-to-face. It was great to meet with so many NLA members, some seeking our view on the latest developments in the industry, others benefitted from information on our services and some just came to say hi!
The exhibition was very well attended with around 3000 online pre-registrations, keeping the NLA stand busy at all times. All visitors showed great interest in the benefits of an NLA Membership and the range of services provided by the NLA. We also received feedback from existing members, which is very valuable, as it helps us in continuing to improve our services, to better meet your needs.
The NLA Stand was manned by our staff members from different departments to ensure we are able to offer maximum support to the visitors. A new stand design reflected the changes to the Membership Categories, which were welcomed by the visitors. The stand exhibited a comprehensive range of discounted products and services including NLA Mortgages, NLA Tenant Check, NLA EPCs and much more.
Some of our Recognised Suppliers, including British Gas, Landlord Action, Envirovent, Loft Interiors and Mattressman, were also present at the show.
The show provided access to free seminars covering a wide range of topics delivered by leading industry experts. The NLA also presented some interesting seminars; Richard Lambert, Chief Executive Officer of the NLA presented on ‘Sustainable Renting’, providing market updates and possible future changes to the public sector; Ken Staunton, Head of Regions, provided everyone with information on legislative updates, while Richard Blanco, NLA Representative of London spoke about ‘financing your portfolio in the current financial climate’. All seminars were very well attended and were followed by productive question and answer session.
Overall we were delighted for the opportunity to attend the show and to speak to our members and the wider landlord community.
The NLA will be next exhibiting at Property and Investor Show on 11th – 12th October 2013, so come and see us at the stand number 110! The show will take place at the ExCel Exhibition Centre. You can find more information on www.propertyinvestor.co.uk.
