National and global brands offer exciting prospect to become your own boss

A world of opportunity presents itself to aspiring business owners at The British & International Franchise Exhibition, coming to London's Olympia on 9 & 10 March.

Whatever the motivations of an individual to own their own business, franchising offers an optimised route to success. Investment in a franchise secures the franchisee a proven blueprint for launching and operating a successful venture, plus the ongoing support provided by the franchise brand and network of existing franchisees.

The British & International Franchise Exhibition showcases business opportunities across a variety of sectors and investment levels, allowing visitors the opportunity to find the perfect franchise to match their lifestyle and career goals. Brands represented include McDonald's, ActionCOACH, Anytime Fitness, Green Motion, Mathnasium and Dyno.

Thanks to an exclusive partnership, every brand represented at The British & International Franchise Exhibition has been accredited by the regulatory body for the UK franchise sector, the British Franchise Association (bfa).

A mandatory requirement to exhibit at the event, bfa accreditation provides event visitors with the valuable reassurance that any brand they approach has been rigorously assessed by the bfa as operating a viable business format enterprise.

For those with their sights set on owning more than one franchise, the Multi-unit Franchise Conference will offer specialist insights into the lucrative world of multi-unit franchising. The conference programme will cover all aspects of setting up and running multiple units and includes an enlightening panel session with experienced and successful multi-unit franchisees.

The Growing Your Own Business Conference offers visitors the opportunity to find out how to best develop their existing or potential business. Experts in boosting business growth will share their expertise in workshops with advice on finance, digital marketing, publicity generation and social media.

Helen Wood, portfolio sales manager at Venture Marketing Group, organisers of The Franchise Exhibitions, comments:

"The British & International Franchise Exhibition presents an exclusive opportunity for those new to franchising and existing franchisees alike to explore, pursue and grow their ventures.

"The array of national and international brands, all bfa-accredited, combined with the goldmine of expert advice and services on offer, make this event an essential part of the process for anyone pursuing their ambition of success through franchising."
