The International Franchise Show and IFA Confirm London Partnership!





Comexposium (formally MFV NSE) is delighted to announce that the Irish Franchise Association will be present at next years’ largest UK Franchise Show, ExCel London 5 & 6 April 2019.



The agreement was arranged as part of Comexposium’s ongoing commitment to the Irish Franchise sector and sponsorship of the Irish Franchise Association. The partnership offers Irish Brands the exclusive opportunity to exhibit to over 10,000 visitors amongst 170+ brands within a dedicated Irish Franchise Association pavilion (the opportunity to showcase your brand to face-to-face to international visitors from over 13 countries). Both the Irish Franchise Association and Comexposium are thrilled to continue their strong partnership moving forward.


Christian Yandell, Company Director (International Franchise Show) expresses his excitement following the partnership, “I am so happy to announce the partnership with the Irish Franchise Association, we have worked with the IFA for over 2 years now and hold a strong relationship which I am certain will continue over future years”.


Simon Chicken, Sales Director (International Franchise Show) adds, “this is great news for everyone involved in franchising in the UK and Ireland”.


The International Franchise Show would like to thank the Irish Franchise Association for all their support over the past two years, and we are pleased to announce that we will continue to work with and support the Irish Franchise Association moving forward maintaining our strong partnership. 


“The Franchise Show is organised and runs like a smoothly oiled machine from start to finish. What's more, first class training is provided free!  We have already had one franchise sign-up as a direct result of the show.”

Liz Darcy Jones, Non-Executive Director, Beatons Franchising Ltd


“As someone who has exhibited at every Franchise Show at London ExCel since its launch back in 2009, it has been great to see the increase in number of exhibitors so that it has now become the largest franchise show in the UK. I look forward to exhibiting again in 2019.”

Clive Sawyer, MD, Business Options

The Franchise Show at ExCeL London has seen significant growth over the years making it the biggest franchise exhibition in the UK, both in terms of exhibitor and visitor numbers; joining MFV worldwide events that are most significant in their respective countries, and all supported by their Franchise Associations. Couple this with our recent acquisition by Comexposium (the 3rd largest event organisers in the world) we are confident that 2019 will see our biggest event in the UK to date.
