Joshua Christopher, marketing manager for the International Franchise Show London, says: “April 5th and 6th saw the International Franchise Show return to London ExCeL for our 10th year anniversary, celebrating the UK’s biggest selection of British and international franchise brands all under one roof.
“Thousands of budding entrepreneurs filtered through the doors eager to discover their perfect franchise opportunity. Hundreds of established and new franchise concepts showcased their opportunity, all seeking the attention of potential investors.
“We are so pleased to yet again produce record breaking figures and to connect potential franchisees with franchisors who’ll support the growth of exciting journeys that lay ahead.
“We’ve had lots of great feedback from this year’s event, both at the show and following via our post show survey, and we are already looking forward to welcoming back familiar faces to our 2020 show.”
