Whether you’re a franchise first-timer or you want to franchise your business, the International Franchise Show is the event for you
Individuals looking to start a new business often consider franchising as an option. With franchises operating in almost every industry you can think of, the options are limitless.
It can therefore be difficult to decide which franchise to invest in. You can ensure that buying a franchise is a positive investment by doing your research before making a commitment.
A franchise exhibition is the shop window of the market, providing an opportunity to meet face to face with franchisors and discuss options.
The International Franchise Show, which takes place at ExCeL London on April 5-6, is a free to attend exhibition where you can conduct a year’s worth of market research in two days. The event brings together over 180 industry leading franchisors, putting visitors face to face with global brands, allowing them to discuss opportunities and ask questions.
The show also gives prospective franchisees the opportunity to gain access to expert guidance, personal advice, interactive features and one to one networking opportunities.
The International Franchise Show has a world class speaker line-up, with the 2019 schedule featuring the likes of Ryan Smolkin of Smoke’s Poutinerie and Gaurav Marya from Franglobal.
Seminars cover a wide range of topics for both franchisors and franchisees, with talks exploring how to successfully expand your business through franchising to the ‘A to Zs’ of buying a franchise.
All seminars are free to attend and aim to give you a valuable insight into every aspect of franchising.
As part of the celebrations for the show’s 10-year anniversary, there will also be an area dedicated to headline supporter Google Digital Garage. This zone will feature three unique and interactive workshops, led by an expert Google Digital Garage trainer.
On each day of the exhibition Ian Thomas will take you through the ins and outs of social media strategies, digital advertising and how to build a digital marketing plan. These sessions aim to show visitors the most effective ways to achieve their business goals through online marketing
With over 180 exhibitors, the International Franchise Show has Britain’s biggest selection of UKbased and international franchise opportunities.
You will be able to meet companies such as Smoke’s Poutinerie, Chemex, Warrens Bakery, Tutor Doctor, FASTSIGNS and Dickey’s Barbeque Pit. Alongside these major franchisors will be a variety of lower investment franchise opportunities, which may better suit your business plans.
