With sponsorship from number one global franchise1, Anytime Fitness, and exclusive support from the British Franchise Exhibition (bfa), it is not hard to see why The National Franchise Exhibition leads the market in franchisee recruitment.
The exhibition has a strong reputation both for consistently attracting thousands of well-researched, ambitious franchisee prospects and for delivering excellent customer service. This is why The Franchise Exhibitions have been running for over 25 years and work with huge franchise brands like McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, Bluebird Care and Platinum Property Partners.
The benefits of face-to-face recruitment in an exhibition environment are reflected in the bfa’s latest research, which cited exhibitions as one of franchisors’ most useful recruitment channels.2 Exhibiting at The National Franchise Exhibition allows franchisors to vet a large number of attractive candidates over a short space of time.
As an exhibitor, you will enjoy unrivalled exposure to an extensive range of relevant franchisee recruitment channels. The exhibition is supported by a big budget, national marketing campaign, which includes a mix of TV, radio, outdoor advertising on strategic transport links, national and trade press, digital and email marketing campaigns, social media and PR.
The exhibition caters to all sectors and a wide variety of investment levels. The following specialized showcases offer additional promotional activities to relevant exhibitors:
- High investment franchises
- Low-cost franchise opportunities
- Vehicle-based franchises
There are also a number of sponsorship packages available to increase your brand presence, from speaking slots to hanging banners and bag inserts.
