The UK’s flagship franchise exhibition will return to the NEC, Birmingham, on 13 & 14 October. The National Franchise Exhibition boasts over 100 leading brands, 60+ seminars and workshops and free professional advice.
The National Franchise Exhibition has partnered exclusively with the British Franchise Association (bfa), the regulatory body for the industry. This is the only exhibition of its kind to be fully accredited by the bfa, ensuring every exhibitor adheres to a strict set of guidelines and has proven they operate a successful business model.
Visitors have the chance to meet a diverse range of highly regarded brands, such as event sponsor – Anytime Fitness, McDonald’s, Platinum Property Partners, The Massage Company, and Radfield Home Care. Attendees can also pre-book free consultations to receive expert finance and career advice. McDonald’s will host their infamous insight sessions, giving attendees a thorough understanding of their franchisee training programme and what it means to be part of the global franchise giant.
Regardless of the amount of capital visitors have to invest, the exhibition hosts a range of showcases highlighting low-cost, vehicle-based and high-investment brands. VIP visitors will have access to the exclusive VIP area where they can hold private meetings with exhibitors to discuss their franchise opportunities.
The Growing Your Own Business Conference is incorporated into the event and will provide aspiring entrepreneurs with essential business skills through a series of workshops. Keynote speakers, Gráinne McCoy and Michelle Niziol, former contestants of The UK Apprentice and successful businesswomen, will discuss their rise to success and the routes they took to get there.
