New franchise event provides career opportunities for budding franchisees
A new event will offer ambitious entrepreneurs even more opportunities to develop a thriving career as a franchisee. The National Franchise Exhibition takes place on 24 & 25 February 2012 at the NEC, Birmingham, following the success of the well-established event in October each year.
Visitors can discuss prospects face to face with a range of franchise businesses covering a wide variety of sectors such as automotive, computing, travel, retail and food and drink.
According to the organizers, the National Franchise Exhibition is the only franchise exhibition in Birmingham to be supported by the British Franchise Association (bfa) and it only allows franchise companies that have met the Association’s code of ethics to exhibit.
Alongside the exhibitors, there will also be a number of free features to provide visitors with a greater understanding of life as a franchisee and the help they need to build a career running their own franchised business successfully.
The conference at The National Franchise Exhibition enables visitors to find out everything they need to know about franchising, from where to start, who to talk to, where to find advice and which franchise would best suit the budding franchisee.
Experts from the bfa, members from the legal and finance professions and business advisers will deliver valuable advice and guidance at the conference. Visitors can also attend seminars with a panel of industry leading experts include lawyers, bankers, consultants and franchisors. This includes exclusive seminars from the bfa exploring ‘Essential tips for franchising your business’, ‘Taking your first step into franchising’ and ‘Making franchising your future’.
Furthermore, the Franchise Starting Point is an important place to begin a visit to the show. Those who are new to the industry can gain answers to all their questions in one location and free one-to-one advice in order to gather the information needed to make the most of their visit.
The National Franchise Exhibition is open from 10am each day, closing at 5pm on Friday 24 February and 4pm on Saturday 25 February 2012. (kbp)
