International Franchise Show Postponed until Original April Dates Due to Covid- 19
The International Franchise Show which was due to take place on 3rd and 4th April 2020 has now been postponed until 16th and 17th of April 2021 at ExCeL London.
Following advice from the British Government and from the ExCeL London venue, show management has reluctantly decided to postpone the show once more for the safety of clients and visitors and to ensure the expo continues to be the definitive, most successful Franchise Expo in the UK. Christian Yandell, Managing Director of the show said, “We have listened to our exhibitors and the management team of ExCeL London and have taken the decision to postpone the show to allow visitor numbers to return to normal and our International exhibitors to attend the event.
“The Global pandemic of Covid-19 has left the world in a state of flux. At present, there is no firm date when exhibitions will be allowed to resume within the UK. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the show to dates when we feel the exhibition will be allowed to take place under much more normal conditions. The health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and our own staff is of paramount importance. We also want to ensure that the Franchise community has a valuable experience at the show.
“We have remained in consultation with our partners at Excel London throughout the lockdown period”, he continued. “We hope that moving the show to April will see an increase in visitor numbers and, concurrently, an increase in franchise sales. We are making this announcement today to give Speakers, Exhibitors and Visitors as much notice as possible to make plans accordingly. We are sorely disappointed that the show will not be able to go ahead in 2020 but feel that there is no other option but to take this decision”
The 2021 show in April at Excel, London will be the biggest franchise show in the UK to date with over 200 exhibitors, over 50 free seminars and over 10,000 people in attendance. The show is a one stop shop for anyone who wants to buy or sell a franchise or set up their own franchising business.
