OREANDA-NEWS. MBN Promotions, a company owned by the family of legendary investor Nigel Wray has today bought into Britain's top one-day investor event, UK Investor Show, and has already set the stage for the biggest event yet in 2017.

Run by Lucy Wray Mercey and husband Tom Mercey, MBN is a long established and highly successful events business based at Saracens RFC.

The 2017 UK Investor Show will be held at Westminster on Saturday April 1 and will be attended by 2,500 High Net Worth investors, journalists and small cap fund managers. More than 120 PLCs will be there to present on the day. 

Lucy Wray Mercey stated:

 "We are very well advanced for next April. With big name speakers such as top fund manager Mark Slater, tech queen Vin Murria, top blogger Paul Scott as well as Nigel Wray on board, interest in the show has been stunning. Already more than half of the stands have been booked by companies who know that this is THE place to engage with serious retail investors."

Nigel Wray stated:

"For a long time I have felt that the private investor is pretty poorly served in terms of getting first hand exposure to the companies that seek his or her investment. I want to build this conference up to really help meet that need."

In addition to the main event in 2017, there will also be a cabaret evening at Saracens, hosted by Nigel Wray, for the CEOs of companies presenting and 150 serious investors in small caps. Entertainment will include a chat by Private Eye co-founder Chris Booker on his favourite covers of the past 50 years and a chat with secret millionaire Nick Leslau.

MBN has bought its stake in the event from online publisher ADVFN. MBN's partner in UK Investor Show is fraud busting share tipster Tom Winnifrith who has been running the UK's top annual event for 15 years.

Lucy Wray Mercey stated: 

"We are ahead of schedule in delivering another event which engages with investors in a way that is often controversial and always informative and entertaining - April 1st is already sure to be a spectacular day. And that is no April fool!"
