The Asset Finance Professionals’ Association (AFPA) is to kick off its regional networking, suspended during 18-months of UK lockdown, with a late afternoon event in Bristol on 23 September at the Grain Barge, Bristol Harbourside. 

This follows the success of the recent gathering of over 100 colleagues from across the asset finance sector on the Yacht London which raised over £7,000 for AFPA’s chosen charity. Entry to the Grain Barge is from 5pm until 8pm and will be based on pre-booked tickets only, vist here.

Tickets will include entry to the dedicated Hold Bar for AFPA delegates, together with a first drink and canapes served during the evening. 

Please remember to renew your AFPA membership or to join AFPA Trust to benefit from discounted entry at this and future events. 

“In 2019, when we first ran the Bristol regional event, we were pleasantly surprised to attract a large number of delegates from across the South West, Wales and the Thames valley. We hope that by raising awareness that AFPA Trust is a national organisation for the asset finance industry, that we will attract similar numbers to this important regional event” said Adrian Langford, AFPA Trust Chair. 

The event sponsor is Acquis Insurance and all ticket monies raised at The Grain Barge will go to support Acquis chosen UK charity for 2021 the Moebius Research Trust

Moebius Syndrome is a rare neurological condition that affects two in a million babies and currently cannot be detected until birth. The charity was nominated by Acquis Client Coordinator, Melissa Cooney, whose daughter Rosie was born 16 months ago with difficulties; it took nine weeks with Rosie in NICU to diagnose Moebius Syndrome. For Rosie, Moebius Syndrome has caused feeding issues meaning she is 100% tube fed.
