|Wedding Videographers Granted Equipment Financing Program for WEVA EXPO 2006
June 20, 2006
Sarasota, FL - "A low-cost, and first-ever, equipment financing program for videographers planning to attend the WEVA 16th Annual Wedding & Event Video Expo at Mandalay Bay has been implemented and activated online,” Bob Bell President of Independent Leasing Associates (ILA) said today.
"This is an alternative to 'all cash up front' transactions. The new ‘EXPO Financing Program’ (EFP) means that if you are a wedding and event videographer you can come to this industry’s largest convention and trade show with ready cash to purchase any equipment or software on the WEVA EXPO showfloor that you need to expand or improve your business,” Bell said. “That is effective business growth!”
Developed for WEVA in response to requests from videographers, the EFP advantage also offers a convenient alternative to high-interest credit card payments, and to complex requirements often involved with bank loans. "We are very pleased to see the ILA’s implementation of the new EFP advantage in time for this year’s WEVA EXPO," said Dan Argenas WEVA’s Director of Association Communications. "It offers a brand new, and instant, financial advantage and competitive business edge for EXPO attendees."
Bell said ILA’s new EXPO Financing Program, available to WEVA members only, 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 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.
Bell, who has also written extensively on business financing for over a decade said, "We developed the new EFP advantage after talking with WEVA members who said they loved coming to the EXPO every year to see the new equipment and software at the Trade Show and wanted to have the discretionary income available to take advantage of the many 'Show Only' specials that are offered. The EFP advantage now allows videographers to put those EXPO specials right to work in their business."
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.
