START Exhibition: at three different locations in 2007
START, Germany’s leading exhibition for business start-ups, franchising and young companies, is not only being held in the usual locations of Bremen and Essen next year but also in the City of Nuremberg. The reason for this, the organizers explained, is because the south German region is a particularly good catchment area as it should attract many visitors from Austria and Eastern Europe.
Both this year’s exhibitions in Bremen and Essen have been considered a great success with a total of over 480 exhibitors and more the 12,800 visitors. The concept will, therefore, remain the same next year: whilst exhibitors present their products and services, experts give tips and advice in free talks, workshops and seminars. One of the main themes of this exhibition is franchising. The German Franchise Association (DFV) and a wide variety of franchisors – over 100 in Essen this year – are on hand to provide the visitors with information.
In 2007, the START Exhibitions will be taking place on 4th and 5th May in Bremen, on 6th and 7th July in Nuremberg and from 14th to 16th September in Essen. Further information is available at the website, www.start-messe.de.
