Franchise Opportunities Live 2013 to showcase UK-wide franchising vacancies

Exhibition to attract entrepreneurs into franchising runs for consecutive year

A UK exhibition to showcase the country’s franchise opportunities, Franchise Opportunities Live 2013, has re-launched to support individuals looking to go into franchising.

The event, which is taking place at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel in Heathrow on September 6 and September 7, will give potential franchisees the chance to discuss available options and receive first-hand advice from established franchisees and franchisors.

Now in its second year, the exhibition gives visitors the chance to meet with franchises from a range of industries and established franchises such as McDonald’s, Driver Hire and Caremark.

Prospective franchisees will be pre-booked into one-to-one meetings with franchises that suit their skills, interests and budget and will be able to attend seminars hosted by franchise businesses on a series of topics.

The British Franchise Association (bfa), who is supporting the event, will present seminars covering all aspects of franchising and there will be a high investment franchise panel providing guidance from headline sponsors Platinum Property Partners, Sign a Rama, Mail Boxes Etc and Papa John’s.

There is also a dedicated space at the event, the ‘Finance Clinic’, to enable prospective franchisees to get financial advice from consultants in a confidential setting as well as a networking area, the ‘Franchise Hub’.

Organised by the Venture Marketing Group, the show seeks to attract budding entrepreneurs into franchising as Adrian Goodsell, franchise exhibition manager of the Group, commented:

“This targeted event is of real benefit for those seriously considering a career in franchising – the proof was in last year’s success.

“We are hoping to repeat the success again this year, and we have really made sure that both days run as efficiently as possible to make this memorable and worthwhile for everyone involved.”
