1 & 2 OCT 2021


International Franchise Show postponed until 1st and 2nd October, 2021

For nearly a year COVID-19 has left us all in a state of constant flux, but with the development of 3 approved vaccines (and more likely to come) there is at least a guaranteed end in sight.

It is clear that whilst the world will probably be a much safer place in April, there is still an element of uncertainty. It is not fair for us to leave you in any doubt any longer than we need to. Our only aims are to remove that doubt and to put on an exhibition to a standard that many of you have become used to. And we can do both, but unfortunately not in April.

The government is assuring us that by the autumn those that want the vaccine will have been vaccinated. The world will at last be back to normal and it will be a busy time for franchising.

Most other exhibition organisers are digesting the news and coming to the same conclusion, so to secure any dates in October has been extremely challenging.

We have been successful in negotiating new dates with ExCeL. The new dates are Friday 1st October & Saturday 2nd October 2021.

In the meantime, we have a selection of digital offerings for you to explore, including a monthly webinar programme, a bimonthly e-magazine and a monthly newsletter, offering you the opportunity to explore the world of franchising right now!

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to seeing you in October.
