Welcome Back Women in Business Expo!


IFS20 is pleased to welcome back Women in Business Expo as a partner! 


Launched by Hub Exhibitions, Women in Business EXPO is a new free-to-attend event designed to provide an environment where women can learn, network and share experiences. The event, which will take place 16-17 October 2019 at Farnborough International Conference and Exhibition Centre, Hampshire, will provide attendees with a range of fascinating talks and access to leading companies, which will be providing business, franchise and career opportunities along with support for future career moves. 


The International Franchise Show is proud to support Women in Business Expo and can’t wait to attend the show on stand #A10. The rise of Women in Franchising has significantly shifted perceptions of franchising as a whole; the increase of flexible franchises and hours to suit a balanced lifestyle, has helped encourage more women to start up their own business venture within the franchise industry (the added benefit of support and an established brand makes franchising an attractive option for many).


The Franchise Show is committed to providing franchise opportunities that are accessible to everyone. We’re constantly adapting our show to meet demands and keep up with the ever changing market. “This partnership is a perfect fit with our vision of making franchising more accessible to all, and ties in well with our portfolio of Women in Business partners we support each year” comments Marketing Manager, Joshua Christopher. 

Group Event Director, Christie Day “According to the Women’s Business Council there has been a ‘significant shift’ in the experiences of women in the workplace in the last five years. But there’s still challenges to be overcome. We want to empower women to confidently take the next step in their working lives, and to feel comfortable juggling the work/life balance. Whether you’re returning to work, planning the next chapter in your career, looking to start a business or considering franchising, we launched Women in Business EXPO with you in mind.”

Women in Business Expo has a strong line-up of female speakers, including two of the UK’s most well-regarded businesswomen, Baroness Karren Brady of Knightsbridge CBE and Lady Michelle Mone, Baroness of Mayfair OBE, who’ll be bringing their business experience to the first annual Women in Business EXPO in 2019, a brand new conference and exhibition that delivers guidance, inspiration and business services to women at any stage of their career or business journey.
