Washington, D.C. – The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) launched a new Funding Source Database to serve industry leaders as a companion tool for the upcoming 2024 Funding Conference, April 16-18 at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago.

The annual Funding Conference connects funding sources with equipment finance organizations looking to establish relationships to fulfill their funding needs. Attendees of the conference can turn to the new Funding Source Database in advance of the event—and all year long—to search by type of company, type of lease structure, funding programs, equipment type and credit criteria. This new online tool is designed for both equipment finance professionals seeking funding and those looking to buy transactions.

“The opportunity to network and do business at the Funding Conference is invaluable,” said Sera Oliver, member of the 2024 National Funding Conference Planning Committee. “There’s no other event like this in the equipment finance industry, where buyers and sellers connect to discuss funding programs and keep current on the latest funding issues. We look forward to seeing everyone April 16-18!”
