Reasons To Visit The International Franchise Show

The International Franchise Show offers access to the latest information and opportunities

Starting a business can be daunting and while some people have the natural abilities and expertise to run a start-up alone, franchising offers more structure for launching, operating and growing a business - all backed up by a sound model.

Franchising in the UK contributes more than £15.1 billion annually to the economy and has seen a 70 per cent increase in its workforce over the past decade. With over 900 brands operating and 97 per cent of franchisee owned businesses profitable, the UK franchise industry is booming.

Ready-made model

Investing in a franchise can provide a ready-made business model with a loyal customer base, along with relationships with suppliers and extensive training.

Over the last seven years the International Franchise Show has helped thousands of people to make their move into new business, offering access to the latest information and opportunities within this fast moving industry.

In 2018 the event takes place at ExCeL, London on February 16- 17. Every year the show features a comprehensive conference programme, hosted by experts and covering all aspects of the franchising industry.

Seminar topics include the logistics and legalities of buying a franchise and finding out how you can franchise your existing business.

The exhibition puts visitors in front of over 180-plus proven brands, including well known international companies such as McDonald’s, ActionCOACH, Sbarro and F45 Training. The show will allow you to scope out prospective opportunities and get more information on ones that are right for you.

Franchise your business

Expanding your business through franchising could be one method that saves you time and money on development.

If you think you’re ready to franchise your business, the next step is to hear from those who have done it and understand the steps you will need to take to find your first franchisee. At the International Franchise Show, you will find an entire seminar hall dedicated to helping business owners franchise and grow.

Finding inspiration

Every year hundreds of visitors choose to join the great brands exhibiting at the show.

Keith McGregor was made redundant from his job as a financial director and was recommended to attend The Franchise Show by a friend to get some inspiration for a new business venture.

He spoke to many interesting exhibitors and found the Expense Reduction Analysts stand, which he felt ticked all the right boxes for him.
