This year sees the The British Franchise Association (bfa) launch an important new event which promises to bring together expanding brands with master franchisees and multi-unit operators from the U.K and overseas. It’s one that Global Franchise is proud to sponsor.
The bfa is offering an important new platform to established brands both in the U.K. and to those abroad looking to enter the U.K. It’s a top-flight event which will also be extremely useful to those franchisees aiming to build a portfolio via multi-unit or master franchising. The bfa will be “leveraging our industry associates to target the promotion of all three audiences”.
Bfa Franchise Superbrand is set to become an essential networking opportunity on the franchising calendar and this year is aiming to attract 150 franchisor and franchisee attendees. The event welcomes franchisors, franchisees, professional advisors and suppliers to the industry from brands inside and outside of the UK.
This event has been fine-tuned by experts to ensure that the issue addressed provides you with the answers you need and three special zones (for Superbrands, UK Developers and Franchisee Investors) will ensure that you receive the information most appropriate to your needs.
This year’s keynote speaker, best-selling author and public speaker Michael Heppel, will speak about self-belief and building confidence, getting out of your comfort zone, and becoming futurists, while among the topics under discussion will be:
The U.K. landscape and economic trends
Legal issue and the U.K. legal framework
Ensuring you are ready to expand in the U.K.
The changing face of business
Ensuring a good ROI
Growing and developing your teams
Identifying the right partners
Taking your brand to the U.S.
Taking your brand to Europe
Global Franchise magazine has long the need for a specialised event which will bring together master franchisees and multi-unit owners with expanding brands based in the U.K. and beyond and we are extremely happy to sponsor this year’s bfa Franchise Superbrand, which will take place 16 May at The Institute of Engineering Technology, in London.
Emily Seddon, Global Franchise’s Head of Editorial, Business, said, “Global Franchise is excited to be sponsoring the bfa Franchise Superbrand Event. As the only magazine focusing on international franchising, we are the industry’s trusted international growth partner, giving established brands the insight, advice and information they need to expand globally with success. This event is a chance for us to share our expertise and help promote a great networking opportunity for brands looking to go global and investors seeking to expand their franchise portfolio.”
