November: The Franchise Supplier Showcase
The Franchise Supplier Showcase is a dedicated business working with specialist suppliers to help franchisors and their franchisees to improve efficiency and increase productivity. Following the success of previous events, The Franchise Supplier Showcase has announced that the next event will be held on 18th November 2009 at the National Motorcycle Museum.
The previous Showcase Event, held in May at Whittlebury Hall, Northamptonshire, introduced a range of specialist suppliers to franchisors and their managers within the franchise community. The suppliers covered a wide range of business products and services including franchisee recruitment media, franchise consultancy, online advertising, franchisor and franchisee print services, specialist franchise management & communication software, franchisor and franchisee insurance, franchise exhibitions, flexible funding solutions, franchise accountancy software, along with expert advice on leasing commercial property.
A range of franchisors attended including delegates from McDonalds, Mr Electric, Ben & Jerry's, Cartridge World, Safeclean and ChipsAway International. All had the opportunity to learn about the latest developments within the franchise community.
Jat Mann from PC Pal commented: “An excellent event which I would definitely recommend to fellow franchisors. There was a good range of suppliers and informative presentations. This event certainly placed suppliers on my radar that we weren’t previously aware of. Plus, watching the presentations of exhibiting suppliers that we do actually use reminded that there were elements of their services that we weren’t using.”
The success of the day enabled franchisors to network with fellow colleagues within the franchise community. Brian Duckett, Director, explains, “We have received excellent feedback, both from the delegates and the presenters for our informative and professional events. Franchisors are able to learn about specialist suppliers that are of real value to their management and day-to-day running of their franchise. Suppliers are able to spend quality time with their target audience and follow-up on direct leads”.
