Robert McLister·General·December 5, 2007CAAMP Expo 2007 The Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals Conference & Expo is now over. The event is the Canadian mortgage industry’s biggest annual convention and a place where mortgage brokers come to learn about lenders and network. The show was fun and informative as usual. Here’s what we liked about the Expo itself: It’s “one-stop shopping” for mortgage product information (a big time saver) It’s a convenient way to cultivate relationships in person with all the lenders (good relationships get hard deals done) Sunday Expo hours (some brokers find it hard to take off weekdays) High-quality give-aways and written materials (including Filogix’s/CAAMP’s tote bag and PMI Canada’s leather portfolio) In the spirit of constructive feedback, we would have liked to see: An Exhibits-only ticket (Charging people $683-$948 just to walk around the convention hall is excessive. Not everyone wants to attend the sessions and events.) More new product announcements (few exhibitors had anything groundbreaking to announce at the show) More mortgage-specific seminars (practical seminars on mortgage origination and marketing techniques would have been nice) Longer Expo hours on Sunday (Some people can only attend on Sunday and four hours isn’t always enough) Overall, however, we commend CAAMP on another entertaining and well-run show. We look forward to next year’s Expo in Vancouver. Like news like this?Join our CMT Updates list and get the latest news as it happens. Unsubscribe anytime. SUBSCRIBE! Thank you for subscribing.
