The UK’s largest franchise exhibition is coming back to Brum, bringing a whole host of seminars, workshops and talks to aspiring franchisees
The National Franchise Exhibition is back. Returning to Birmingham this October, the two-day event aims to bring together industry experts, key franchise brands and potential franchisees from across the UK. It is set to attract thousands of aspiring business owners to the city and will showcase a wide variety of franchise concepts to suit all visitors, from sectors including food and drink, property, retail, care, fitness and cleaning.
Sponsored by Anytime Fitness, the health and fitness brand, the exhibition will also offer guests free and exclusive access to over 60 industry seminars from a variety of franchise professionals. The event will feature a number of talks and speakers – which include Nick Telson, co-founder of DesignMyNight.com, and Gareth Davies, vice president of UK and Ireland at Papa John’s – as well as providing workshops and opportunities to learn what it like to become a franchisee. Additionally delegates will get the chance to meet with some of the sector’s top brands, including McDonald’s, Platinum Property Partners, Chopstix, The Creation Station and Dream Doors.
Adrian Goodsell, director of franchise sales at Venture Marketing Group, the organisers of the Franchise Exhibitions, commented: “The National Franchise Exhibition is instrumental for any ambitious entrepreneur looking for business opportunities. Being part of a franchise provides an excellent chance to start your own business but with the reassuring support of an established brand behind you. The exhibition provides a rare platform to be face-to-face with top industry professionals and take in sound advice before starting your own journey.”
The National Franchise Exhibition will take place at the NEC in Birmingham on October 2 and 3. For those eager to get in on the action, we suggest you head over and grab some tickets.
