Make the UK’s leading international franchise event the next step on your career path

A major international event is showcasing a wide range of exciting franchise opportunities, advice and support to cater for the increased interest in the industry. Those looking to make the move into franchising will find plenty to interest them at The British & International Franchise Exhibition, which takes place on 16 & 17 March 2012 at Olympia, London.

The UK’s leading international franchise event has many franchise businesses from a variety of sectors including food and drink, property, finance and travel. Visitors can meet face to face with exhibitors including Cash & Cheque Express, Go Cruise, Platinum Property Partners, Snappy Snaps and Totally Clean Solutions.

The British & International Franchise Exhibition is the only franchise exhibition in London supported by the British Franchise Association (bfa) and only companies that have met the Association’s code of ethics can exhibit. This means visitors can have confidence in the franchise opportunities on offer, as they are an ethical entity within the UK market.

A range of free features will provide visitors with further guidance, advice and support to develop a career as a franchise owner. An extensive conference features experts from the bfa, members from the legal and finance professions, business advisers, as well both franchisors and franchise owners. Aspiring entrepreneurs will learn all they need to know in order to take the next steps in the search for their perfect franchise.

The conference has a wide range of over 40 insightful seminars covering topics such as high-level investment franchising, franchise resales, executives in franchising, families in franchising, growing your own business, hands-on franchising and international franchising.

For those looking to capitalise on international opportunities in the UK or set up a franchise abroad, the International Zone will be of particular interest, providing important information on what franchise opportunities are available, how to gain funding, advice on procedures and pitfalls to avoid.

A regular and popular feature at the show is the Franchisee Panel. Visitors can hear about the transition from employee to franchise owner as well as true stories, advice and anecdotes – all from the franchise owners themselves. Due to popular demand, there are now multiple sessions taking place throughout the two days of the exhibition.

Visitors with a large amount of capital to invest can have valuable conversations with franchised companies at the High Investment VIP Lounge. Sponsored by Platinum Property Partners, this feature enables people to meet up and network, while also keeping in touch with the office using WiFi.
