Equipment leasing professionals to meet at the Ritz-Carlton in Atlanta August 30-31.

On August 30 at the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead hotel in Atlanta, the Lessors Network will open the Annual Lessor Resources Showcase. The event showcases funding sources, technology solutions and service providers exclusively active in the commercial and municipal equipment leasing markets.

This year’s event features the largest number of scheduled presentations and roundtable discussions on topical subjects; however, insiders are wondering if the hot topic will be FASB’s recent announcement to overhaul leasing accounting policies.

“It’s unlikely to have this many senior industry executives in one room and not have this be a primary topic of conversation,” said John Semon, CEO and founder of the Lessors Network. “We have built our reputation on delivering smaller, professionally intimate networking events where each and every attendee is a proactive participant. Anytime a hot topic such as proposed changes to our accounting policies comes across our radar, we can expect our attending executives to engage in vigorous discussion, sharing their ideas and opinions. This event is made for just such opportunities.”

Past participants include Bank of America; Caterpillar Financial Services Corp.; Chase Equipment Leasing; CIT; Citigroup, Inc.; Daimler Chrysler; De Lage Landen; Decision Systems, Inc.; Dell Financial Services; Deutsche Financial Services; Diligenz, Inc.; ePlus Group, Inc.; Experian; Fair; Isaac and Company; Fitch Ratings; GATX Capital; GE Capital; GMAC Commercial Finance; IBM Global Financing; Information Leasing Corp.; International Decision Systems; John Deere Credit; Key Equipment Finance Group; KPMG Consulting LLC; Oracle Credit Corporation; Pitney Bowes Financial Services; RVI Group; SAP America; Siemens Financial Services; Textron Financial Corporation; Toyota Financial Services; UCC Direct Services; US Bancorp; Wachovia Leasing & Equipment Finance and Wells Fargo Equipment Finance.
