In November: The Irish Franchise Exhibition
Anyone wanting to own and run their own business can explore the major benefits of franchising at The Irish Franchise Exhibition which is being held at Main Hall, Royal Dublin Society (RDS) on 21 & 22 November 2008. Being one of Ireland’s leading franchise events, it will provide aspiring entrepreneurs with a comprehensive overview of the industry, and how to become a successful business owner through buying into an established, tried and tested concept.
The exhibition is full of ideas, help and advice for anyone considering franchising as a business and career opportunity with exhibitors offering information and guidance about buying a franchise. Furthermore, a franchisee forum has been incorporated into the event which provides expert advice on the key aspects of franchising as well as acting as a guidance on how to develop and strengthen an existing business. Visitors will also be able to take part in The Growing Your Own Business Showcase & Conference which is being run parallel to the event and offers advice on all aspects of business including financing, strategic planning, sales and marketing.
According to the organizers, leading franchises will be attending the event from a cross-section of business sectors, including recruitment, food and drink, health and fitness, cleaning and printing companies. Exhibiting companies include Apollo Blinds, BB Coffee & Muffins, Cartridge World, Cash Generator, Energie Fitness, PHQ (Godfather Pizza) and Snap-On-Tools.
The exhibition is open on Friday, 21 November, from 11am to 6pm and on Saturday, 22 November, from 11am to 5pm. Further information is available at www.franchiseinfo.ie. (kbp)
