One of the top annual awards nights for the mortgage industry will be going ahead this year despite the pandemic – as an interactive virtual event.
The 2020 British Specialist Lending Awards will take place online, with people being asked to ‘attend’ by tuning into the live stream of the event on the night. There will be a chat function and social media wall available so that they are able to participate directly in the ceremony, rather than just passively watching it on devices.
This annual awards night is without doubt one of the most prestigious on the calendar for the mortgage sector, with the total number of nominations for this year’s event being 4,227. The awards are intended to celebrate the best that the UK specialist lending market has to offer.
Danielle Moore, of Specialist Lending Solutions, said they regretted the ceremony could not happen in the normal way, but felt this was the best alternative.
Her colleague Paula John told Mortgage Solutions that:
“We’ll showcase the glamour, the glitz and the glory of the British Specialist Lending Awards and invite you to join in the celebrations, all from the comfort of your own home.”
The organisers will be taking registrations for the awards night from September and it will take place on 28th October.
The interactive elements of this event should ensure advisors who have completed CeMAP training and want to advance their careers in the specialist lending market can still use it to network.
