This high-impact event is your gateway to international franchising expansion, featuring a truly global agenda. This really is an ideal informative and established interactive learning platform for established brands both in the U.K., and those abroad that are looking to enter the U.K. market.
Stevie Borthwick, head of franchise at Barclays UK, notes, “At Barclays we believe franchises play a vital role in supporting the local economy through job creation and the payment of taxes. Not only does it promote entrepreneurship, but it reduces the risk of failure too. With this in mind, we are extremely proud to be continuing our commitment to supporting the franchise community by sponsoring the bfa’s upcoming SUPERBRAND event in London. Whether you’re a franchisor or franchisee, having industry knowledge and experience is vital to make the most of new opportunities. The bfa’s ambition and dedication to upskill both franchisors and franchisees whilst providing opportunities to network and grow, makes this event truly worthwhile and useful to anyone looking to move forward in their franchising journey.”
