International Franchise Week hosts Franchising Symposium

16th & 17th March 2017, Royal Garden Hotel, London

Today more and more franchise businesses are international. In the UK, 20% of our franchisors are the master franchisees of businesses from outside the UK. Of our home-grown franchisors, 38% now franchise outside of the UK. One in nine brands are considering franchising internationally in the future. The appetite to expand globally is seen all over the world and franchising is the perfect model to support that ambition.

Our bfa IFA EFF International Franchising Symposium in London on the 16th & 17th March will give all our delegates an opportunity to find out more about global expansion and meet the people with the skills and experience that make it happen.

The Symposium will showcase speakers from the US, Europe and the UK sharing the realities of their worldwide success and the problems they have encountered. Discuss topics from the future of digital marketing to the nuts and bolts of different markets. Get up to date on worldwide trends in regulation with some of the leading franchising lawyers regarding opportunities and challenges facing franchising in the future. Join interactive roundtables discussing topics such as managing franchise resales, use of social media for recruitment, franchising in the UAE and Brexit – will it make a difference?
