In February 2017, we hosted our most successful event to date. With over 16,000 pre-registered visitors and hundreds more registering on the day, The Franchise Show reinforced its position as the largest Franchise event in the UK.
But don't just take our word for it; hear what some of our customers have to say about the event!
"Franchise Direct have exhibited at The Franchise Show five times over the last four years and have had great success every time, not only has it given us an excellent opportunity to promote our web portal to the many thousands of potential franchisees who attend, but it's also brought us in a lot of new business from both domestic & international franchisors who wish to advertise their franchise concept with us. After seeing the continued success that exhibiting at The Franchise Show has brought us, we look forward to exhibiting at many more over the coming years. Thanks to all involved, keep up the good work guys."
Brian Rogan - Franchise Direct UK

The traffic that comes to this show is fantastic, with thousands of people coming, the people are very qualified, potential investors. The type of franchises that attend, it is a nice venue because you don’t have boring concepts or you don’t have low quality concepts you have strong concepts, very successful concepts so it makes it a very appealing proposition for people to come and shop around for a new franchise.

“This is the first time we had exhibited at The Franchise Show. Ceri and his team were very helpful, responsive to requests and clearly cared very much about supporting the exhibitors and providing everything that was needed. Nothing was too much trouble and it was great comfort to see them on the ground and available at all times during the event. A great venue and very well managed slick operation, we will be exhibiting here again in the future.”

We decided to use The Franchise Show to launch our new franchise Event Decor8. With the help and support of Tom, Simon and John we managed to achieve the look and presence we desired. The response was amazing far surpassing any pre event targets we had set. The quality of the leads received were exceptional. We would strongly recommend The Franchise Show team to any new or existing business looking to take their franchise to a new level.
Mike Glover, General Manager, Event Decor8
It was our second attendance at the Franchise Show - the first was last year and it was our own first show. This year we were a bit more experienced and found that, whilst we took fewer details of individuals, the quality of the candidates we registered appears to be much higher than previously. We were delighted with the atmosphere created and enjoyed the show tremendously.
