International Franchise Show 2024: Who to see and what to know

International Franchise Show 2024: Who to see and what to know

Choosing the right brand for you is a big decision: but talking to top businesses from across the industry can help you get that right

It was big news when the International Franchise Association announced it would be sponsoring the International Franchise Show. The collaboration promises to bring new franchise brands to our shores from across the world. The event is playing host to more than 250 businesses, including 50 global brands.

Meanwhile, the show is also serving as a platform for keynote sessions for industry experts, who are primed to offer best practice advice on how to invest successfully, become financially successful, and choose the right business for you.

For franchisees, it’s the perfect place to scope out opportunities, and here, we’ve outlined just some of the highlights.

This approach has proven successful, and the franchise has continued its expansion across the UK, achieving an 89% satisfaction rate among franchisees in the process.

The brand is now looking for franchisees who are hoping to invest in a versatile industry. A big advantage of this investment opportunity is that everyone in the FASTSIGNS network is positioned to have the best possible chance of success, as teams are curated around a franchisee’s individual skillset.
