EuroCatalyst 2003: Competition, convergence and opportunity in European mortgage lending and fixed income investmentWhen: 22-24 October 2003
Where: Lisbon, Portugal fastest growing residential mortgage lending market in Europe.
Community precedes commerce: Mortgage lending in Europe embraced a new paradigm with EuroCatalyst 2002 in Madrid, a two-day comprehensive market event that encompassed the entire European mortgage industry in one place, at one time.
Highly unique, neutral and independent, the EuroCatalyst event is designed to drive the markets toward best products and practices based on commercial realities and to accelerate the development of a pan-European mortgage industry which can compete effectively in the global capital markets.
Produced by and for professionals in the European mortgage credit sector, the EuroCatalyst event has become, in effect, a pan-European "think tank" for market leaders, lenders and investors.
In Madrid in 2002, the event provided a canvas upon which the entire industry could begin to take shape in a commercial format.
The unparalleled dialogue that began in Madrid with EuroCatalyst 2002 continues with EuroCatalyst 2003, to be held at the spectacular Ritz-Four Seasons in Lisbon from 22-24 October 2003.
an opportunity for companies throughout the region to obtain a better understanding of the entire European playing field
open, informal networking opportunities for all attendees
FROM CONTEXT TO CONVERGENCECONTEXT
Brings together all companies and organizations in the European mortgage markets in one place, at one time, once a year - within the context of a single European mortgage and housing finance industry.
Provides a global context for all local, national, Pan-European and international entities to cooperate and transcend political and territorial issues.
Depth: Panel discussion focus on industry-wide concerns ranging from funding and risk management to distribution and servicing infrastructure, with full coverage on major regional markets and EU accession countries. Collectively, the event covers all aspects of Europe's mortgage markets and the shared issues, individuals, companies, innovation and technology that drive them.
Vital exchange of ideas and information: No empty speeches or "canned" presentations at this event - neutral moderators rally panelists who represent the full spectrum of viewpoints and positions.
All panel discussions utilise the latest in interactive technology, allowing delegates to input questions into computers from the audience. The result is a lively and informative exchange between panelists and delegates.
The EuroCatalyst Annual Conference Yearbook sets a new standard in networking with benefits that last far beyond the event itself. Provided to all attendees, the Yearbook documents career histories, current positions and interests of all participants who can be directly contacted before (on the Web site) , during and after the event.
The daily conference newspaper, the EuroCatalyst Times, covers all sessions and detailed interviews of panelists, allowing those who pursued one track to catch up on what happened elsewhere.
Community precedes commerce: Today, more than ever, people want to know who they're working with, as well as their competitors. EuroCatalyst 2002 brings together people with a common interest -and enables them to learn about each other in an environment specifically tailored to building the relationships required to conduct ongoing business in Europe. For our partners and exhibitors, this is an unprecedented platform from which to address the entire European industry as your audience in one place, at one time.
Mortgage lending and housing finance is a complex and specialized activity which requires its own industry.
Understanding that globalisation drives commoditisation and convergence, the need for a defined industry in Europe is urgent. Rather than face extinction within financial services, EuroCatalyst 2002 strives to simultaneously facilitate and reposition the mortgage industry as leaders of convergence rather than consequences of it. To drive that momentum, specific topics are "bleeding edge" for our industry and speakers are global leaders in their field whose knowledge and experience is applied to the mortgage lending industry itself. This extends our recognition as knowledge leaders outside of our own industry and gives us the ideas, tools and strategies to become convergers, not convergees.
