Conference 2017

Follow the conversation via the hashtag #bfaconf17

This year’s conference will focus on further increasing the depth and breadth of learning as the bfa refreshes content and considers how as a collective, industry representatives can make a difference to the future of franchising.

“This was the first time I have attended the bfa Conference and I certainly felt that everything was designed to allow delegates to get the most from their visit. Networking opportunities will particularly allow us to work closely with our peers to develop relationships and collaboratively deliver the highest standards within the franchise sector.” Carys Jukes - Water Babies
