The Franchise Marketing Awards recognise the industry's most innovative and effective marketing campaigns for products, services and franchisee recruitment.

Judged by an independent panel of experts, The Franchise Marketing Awards recognise and reward companies which have raised their public awareness and, as a result, achieved sustainable growth.

The Franchise Marketing Awards attract many British franchise companies, both large and small, from a wide variety of sectors.

Winners will be announced at a glamorous Awards dinner on 23 March 2007 at the Marriott London Hotel, on the first night of The British & International Franchise Exhibition. The Awards evening will be hosted by well-known TV comedian and panellist Lee Hurst.

Director General of The British Franchise Exhibition (bfa) Brian Smart commented: 'The Franchise Marketing Awards are an important initiative recognising excellence and innovation within the franchise industry. We are delighted to support the awards which further raise the public profile of ethical franchising in the UK.'

Duncan Berry, Director of European Franchising, Cartridge World, winner of the Best Overall Marketing Campaign 2006 commented:

"It was a tremendous honour to win this prestigious award against strong competition. The award has helped to raise Cartridge World's profile throughout the franchise industry.

Exposure gained in national and trade press has supported our recruitment efforts for new franchisees this year, further strengthening our position as market leader. We look forward to entering again in 2007."
