A Message from our CEO

The British Franchise Association is taking the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) extremely seriously. Our number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of both our customers and our people and providing a safe environment for all. We are staying well informed of the developing situation and are following advice and recommendations from the Government.

Due to the circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic we have taken the decision to cancel any face to face events until the end of May. While I appreciate this may cause an inconvenience, we will be making every effort to replace most of these events with virtual alternatives to ensure you can continue to maximise your community learning opportunities with the bfa.

Please note as our Superbrand event has a largely international focus, we have taken the decision to postpone this event completely until May 2021.

We will be in touch with you individually if you have a booking for an upcoming event to let you know in which form this will take place.

Please do refer to the Government website for the latest business guidance for yourself and your networks at: https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response

We have also started to compile additional resource and reference materials that could be useful to the bfa membership community on our ‘Business Matters’ page of our website at: https://www.thebfa.org/expert-advice-zone/business-matters/. Please do share anything with us that you feel will be helpful to others so we can add these.

I would like to thank you all for your support in this challenging time.

Yours sincerely,

Pip Wilkins

Chief Executive

British Franchise Association
