The annual Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals (CAAMP) conference is being held this weekend in Montreal. CAAMP is the National association for Mortgage Brokers and Lenders with over 12,00o members representing over 1,700 companies.
The conference is a great place to see all the Lenders, Mortgage Insurers, Brokers and other industry product suppliers under one roof. It’s also a great time to hear about new products, trends and Economist’s forecasts for 2011…. (forecasts are difficult to make during a recovery so I’m sure we’ll be paying attention to what is and what is not said).
To me, the best part of the conference has always been the Trade show or the Expo. This is where we can meet everyone in one room, at one time… and on a one on one basis…. One suggestion for CAAMP… expand the time of the Trade show…3 hours isn’t enough to visit all the booths… perhaps cut out some of the speakers…no disrespect intended to the speakers….
