The National Franchise Exhibition: 2 & 3 Oct 2009, NEC Birmingham
Once again, the National Franchise Exhibition is being held together with the Growing Your Own Business Exhibition & Conference in Birmingham this October.
Despite the economic downturn, franchising is proving to be a great way to start one’s own business giving budding entrepreneurs the support of an established business model and proven brand. Those interested in expanding their networks, therefore, should not miss this important event in the UK’s franchising diary.
High quality franchisors, accredited by the British Franchise Association (bfa), will be present, offering opportunities from a cross-section of business sectors - from management consultancy and recruitment to food & drinks, health & fitness, cleaning companies, and children's activities.
Besides giving franchisors and potential franchisees the opportunity to network with each other, the organizers have also put together a number of events parallel to the exhibition to provide additional information and advice. These include free franchise seminars from the British Franchise Association, the Growing Your Own Business Exhibition & Conference which gives entrepreneurs access to small business suppliers, the Women in Franchising Zone designed specifically to provide inspiration and guidance for women looking to start their own businesses as well as the Find Your Franchise Zone which has been especially created to help visitors search for their ideal franchises.
The National Franchise Exhibition 2009 and the Growing Your Own Business Exhibition & Conference is open on Friday 2 October 2009 from 10am to 5pm and on Saturday 3 October 2009 from 10am to 4pm.
