CSA announces stellar entertainment line-up for UKCCC

05 September 2018  

The Credit Services Association (CSA), the voice of the UK debt collection and debt purchase sectors, has confirmed Matt Forde – the ex-political advisor turned writer and comedian – as the compere for this year’s Credit and Collection Technology Awards, as part of the UK Credit and Collections Conference Gala Dinner taking place on 13 September 2018.

A former associate of the Labour Party, Matt is now one of the UK’s most in-demand satirists, and has recently been performing his sell-out show ‘Brexit Through The Gift Shop’ at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Matt will be on hand to help recognise and reward the winners from a record number of entries for this year’s awards, including a shortlist of 110 finalists from nearly 80 companies across 18 categories.

Complementing Matt will be Bongo’s Bingo, another sell-out entertainment outfit which combine traditional bingo-type entertainment with music, dancing and games. Bongo’s Bingo has won plaudits from Amsterdam to Ibiza, and has received critical acclaim across Europe and beyond - “Its utter brilliance, utterly irreverent, utter mayhem and generally the funniest night out you’ll find in the city” (Time Out Dubai).

“We wanted to offer delegates something that touches on the political relevance of a trade body event, mixed with the craziness of something like Bongo’s Bingo to make sure the awards ceremony goes off with a bang!” Colleen Peel, Head of Marketing and Events, CSA.

The CSA’s 2018 UKCCC will take place at the newly refurbished four-star Crown Plaza in Stratford Upon Avon. All details including booking information can be found on the event website –
