July 19, 2006
Sarasota, FL - Announced only a few weeks ago, the EXPO Equipment Financing Program created for the WEVA 16th Annual Wedding & Event Video Expo (Aug. 21-24) has grabbed the attention of videographers across the country.
“Equipment financing approvals for the applications submitted by videographers going to the WEVA EXPO 2006 Trade Show has already topped $300,000 with the half-million mark just around the corner. The program is receiving an excellent response,” said Bob Bell President of ILA, the company sponsoring the financing program for WEVA members attending WEVA EXPO 2006 next month at Mandalay Bay. EXPO program information and Early-Bird discount registration is available online now or by calling 1-800-805-3976.
“The financial figures speak for themselves. Wedding and event videographers are not only coming en mass to Wedding & Event Video Expo 2006 they are coming to the Trade Show pre-approved to make the hardware/software purchases they need to keep their business competitive and in demand,” said Dan Argenas WEVA International’s Director of Association Communications.
“This brand new program shows WEVA’s strategic initiatives at work on behalf of our members. WEVA International is the only organization in pro video to have arranged an exclusive Trade Show financing program for show attendees,” Argenas said.
“The EXPO Equipment Financing Program represents an ‘industry-first’ and ILA has been arranging business financing for trade associations for years,” Bell confirmed. “We are pleased the program is already a success. ILA is continuing to process applications from WEVA members on a daily basis. The approval process is generally completed in about 24 hours.”
Helping Videographers Get A Competitive Edge
Activated in time for Wedding & Event Video Expo 2006 the new EXPO Equipment Financing Program (EFP) for WEVA International members means videographers can go to the Trade Show knowing they already have funds in hand to make purchases that can help their business achieve greater success.
The new program offers videographers a convenient alternative to high-interest credit card payments, and to complex requirements often involved with bank loans. ILA’s EXPO Equipment Financing Program, said Bell, offers advantages that include:.
* Up to $100,000 for equipment acquisition with application only (no tax returns or financial statements required) with competitive rates.
* Show WEVA EXPO 2006 exhibitors your “pre-approved” EFP card and take advantage of the excellent “EXPO Only” specials at the Trade Show by being pre-approved.
* Special rebate for WEVA International members only, equal to 2% of the equipment cost (maximum rebate is $1,000).
* Unlike putting new equipment on a credit card or bank loan, the EFP advantage does not affect your credit scores or ratios.
* Trade Show Example: With the EFP advantage, a new high-definition camcorder can be purchased for less than $200 a month.
* Most EFP applications are processed within 24 hours.
ILA has provided videographers with an instant, online monthly payment calculator to assist in the budgeting for videography equipment needs. To access ILA’s secure monthly calculator - Click Here.
