Budding franchisees invited to meet parent firms at free event
Franchise Opportunities Live to bring together vast range of franchisors
Budding entrepreneurs who are thinking of starting up as a franchisee will have the opportunity to meet face to face with prospective parent companies at a free event near Heathrow Airport.
Franchise Opportunities Live will host franchisors from a variety of sectors, such as retail, property, travel, finance and home care – with businesses including Auditel, 7Camicie and Platinum Property Partners available for one to one meetings.
Visitors to the event can have confidence in the credibility of the exhibitors, as only firms that meet the British Franchise Association’s (bfa’s) code of ethics are permitted to attend.
The bfa, which is sponsoring the event, will also be hosting a series of seminars to guide visitors through the process of becoming a successful franchisee – including what to consider when choosing a franchise, when to get legal advice and how to obtain funding.
Adrian Goodsell, manager of the exhibition, said: “This is a new and different way for prospective franchisees to progress their research into franchise opportunities.
“The event is a valuable step in the process, enabling visitors to refine their choices by meeting with key franchise businesses, receive advice and guidance, and network.
“It is targeted and structured to be of real benefit for those who are seriously considering making the move into franchising.” Franchise Opportunities Live will be held at Radisson Blu Edwardian, 7-8 September. To book a free ticket, call 020 8394 5100 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
