A new platform for national recognition within the intermediary market launches today as the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) announces its inaugural Commercial Broker Awards.

The awards ceremony will be hosted at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham from 12pm-8pm on Thursday 23rd April 2020, where the winners of each award category will be announced.

The event is an opportunity for the NACFB to thank its broker Members. Standard tickets are priced at £125 per ticket and £1250 per table, but, for a limited time only, NACFB broker tickets will be subsidised to just £50 per ticket or £500 per table with the exclusive discount code: NACFBBROKER60

The events will see fourteen award categories from which NACFB brokers can select; ranging from sector specific awards to deal of the year and sole trader categories. Non-NACFB Members will not be considered for shortlisting and the awards are not open for Patron lenders of the Association. The deadline for all entries is 17.00 on Friday 7th February 2020.

A panel of industry leaders will produce a shortlist after which all NACFB lenders will then submit their votes for the winner. All shortlisted NACFB brokerages will be notified in the last week of February.

Graham Toy, pictured, NACFB chief executive, looked ahead to the new flagship event:

“Our November Gala Dinner recognises Patrons who are best in class, but the Commercial Broker Awards will turn the spotlight onto our broker Members – who remain at the very heart of everything we do.

“The aim of the event is to have an 85/15 broker/lender split, and we would encourage our community of brokers to bring their partners and clients along with them to join in the celebrations.”
