The International Franchise Show, Britain’s biggest franchise expo is back at the ExCeL, London on October 1-2, 2021. Over 10,000 entrepreneurs and potential franchisees will make their way to ExCeL, London in the hopes of buying a franchise or selling a franchise concept. This free event is the U.K.’s largest for 12 years with over 250 exhibitors, 60 seminars, one-to-one personal advice, interactive features, expert mentoring and more.
The show will play host to a number of recognizable brands, both British and international. Exhibitors will be placed in clearly marked pavilions and will also include a new franchise zone where potential franchisees and entrepreneurs can look for the ‘next big thing’. New to 2021, there will also be a ‘supplier zone’, which is dedicated to providing support and services to franchises.
Educational masterclasses and seminars will run alongside the show with a new and improved seminar agenda, all of which are free to attend. Masterclasses will be provided by Accentia, ActionCOACH and Exela who plan to cover everything from lead generation, business coaching and franchise planning.
Some of the topics covered will include how to fund and finance a franchise during the free seminars, alongside workshops and first-hand testimonials.
The show is sponsored by Xero, a cloud-based accounting software.
