SLTA named Host Partner for 2018 Auto Finance Summit Asia Event

NEW YORK, NY (May 8, 2018) — The Shanghai Leasing Trade Association, a non-profit association with the mission to strengthen the leasing industry’s services, self-regulation, and coordination in Shanghai, has joined Auto Finance News as the host partner for the upcoming Auto Finance Summit Asia event.

The two parties met in Shanghai on the afternoon of April 25 to formally sign an agreement. As part of its partnership, SLTA will support Auto Finance News in the execution of a new event, Auto Finance Summit Asia, which will take place September 5-6 in Shanghai. The association will work with Auto Finance News on tailoring the agenda and content for the local market, as well as inviting participation from local leasing companies.

The SLTA, which operates under the Shanghai Municipal Commission of Commerce, has more than 200 member companies. Since being founded in 1999, SLTA has made noteworthy improvements to the leasing industry and has become one of the most influential leasing trade associations in China.

“Auto finance in China is growing rapidly, and the Auto Finance Summit Asia will be a milestone event for this dynamic market,” said JJ Hornblass, Chief Executive Officer of Royal Media, the producer of the Auto Finance Summit Asia. “We are honored to be working with the SLTA to create a bridge between global auto finance markets.”

Auto Finance Summit Asia 2018 will bring the same level of expertise and professionalism as the Auto Finance Summit, Royal Media’s well-established annual event in the United States. For 17 years, Royal Media and Auto Finance News have presented the Auto Finance Summit, bringing together in the U.S. top executives in auto lending and leasing for exclusive content and unparalleled networking.
