The Spring National Franchise Exhibition will be held at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, on Friday and Saturday, February 19 and 20.
The exhibition is organised by the Venture Marketing Group, whose annual series of four franchise shows at London, Birmingham (2) and Manchester are the only such events in which the franchisors are accredited by the sector’s self-regulatory body, the British Franchise Association (BFA).
This is important to visitors to ensure that the franchises on offer conform to the association’s strict code of ethical business practice, particularly in the fairness of their franchise contracts towards franchisees.
The exhibition will showcase a variety of sectors including food and drink, property, retail, care, fitness, cleaning and children’s activities.
The Birmingham event provides an opportunity for any aspiring business owners to meet face-to-face with industry experts, who can help them get on the road to starting a business.
There will also be an extensive seminar programme, offering over 60 free seminars, where a range of professionals will discuss the required tools and advice to set-up and manage a successful franchise business.
Representatives from the BFA, business advisers, legal and financial professionals, franchisors and franchisees will cover a range of relevant topics. This provides a unique opportunity for visitors to raise questions and have them debated before a public audience.
Visitors can obtain free admission by registering at www.franchisetickets.co.uk and entering the promotional code FWN2 to save.
The exhibition will open from 10am each day, closing at 5pm on the Friday and 4pm on the Saturday.
