What to Expect

Franchise Exhibitions are an excellent opportunity to research the many franchising opportunities on offer and meet with franchisors face to face.

To give you the right tools to explore your future in franchising, we run free seminars during the exhibition. ‘Start Your Business in Franchising’ is aimed at prospective franchisees, while existing businesses looking to franchise their operations will benefit from ‘Franchise Your Business’ seminars.

We also have our own stand and myself and the BFA team are always happy to talk to you and help you explore your entrepreneurial side to the full! – Pip Wilkins QFP, CEO, British Franchise Association
