Here's what exhibitors had to say about The British & International Franchise Exhibition 2023!
"The quality of conversations we’ve had is the best of any show we’ve exhibited at so far, and we’ve been doing this for 7 years! VMG has done a great job getting the right people here – we were having quality conversations from 10:15am on Friday.
"The Franchise Exhibitions have proven time and time again that they can get really good quality leads to us as quite an early-stage franchise opportunity. Their partnership with the BFA is fantastic and provides real credibility. It's having detailed conversations with good quality prospects that keeps us coming back."
Charlie Thompson - The Massage Company
"I absolutely loved it! The target audience is exactly what we’re after and it’s been so helpful to speak to them in person. It’s been a really, really busy weekend and we’re so proud of how much we’ve done. We’ve had a lot more leads than we were expecting – not just people from the UK, but even visitors who were interested in franchising internationally with us."
Mia Llamas-Bringas - Mooboo Bubble Tea
"We have consistently done many exhibitions over the years. We’ve found the demographic of the visitors great and balanced across many aspects. Other shows can be a little bit lightweight on what we think are the right people for us. Great event with great support - loving it!"
Chris Rocker - Just Shutters
"We’ve had fantastic conversations and the whole experience has been beyond our expectations! There have been a really good number of high-quality candidates, so it’s been well worth it for us."
Jay Chen - Truedan
"It’s been a really good couple of days for us – the best we’ve had in the last few years! We’ve got really strong leads coming through and great potential franchisees! It’s important to stay current and keep your name out there – Franchise Exhibitions are part of that journey."
Adrian Ayres - Puccino's Worldwide Ltd.
"Exhibitions are critical. While there has been a big push towards online events, when you are selling a franchise, you are also selling a relationship! If you haven’t had that personal contact with someone to determine whether they are the right fit for your franchise, it is hard to know if they are the right candidate. Exhibitions are an efficient and effective way to meet a lot of people and at least make that initial assessment – is there a match? – which is critical to success."
Shafik Mina - Mad Science
"We’ve collected 100+ enquiries, including from multi-unit franchise prospects. Really impressed with the lead generation we’ve achieved here!"
Phil Faulkener - Burger Boi
"We track all of the leads in terms of how people find their way to Platinum Property Partners. Over the years, without a doubt, The Franchise Exhibitions have been our most successful source of new franchisees. Looking at the leads we’ve collected today, they’ve been great quality – I’m happy!"
Paul Watson - Platinum Property Partners
"We’ve had a great weekend and met a lot of high-quality individuals. It’s felt much busier than other events and a lot of the exhibitors have agreed that’s it’s been a fantastic event."
Daniel Penn - Anytime Fitness
"Really good few days with some of the best results we’ve ever had! We received a great number of genuine, quality leads on day one. Somebody already booked in a call next week, and we also had people who came to the event just to meet us face-to-face!"
Sam Crook - Radfield Home Care
"6/5 stars! I’ve been blown away by the quality of the conversations we’ve had with serious investors over the past two days."
Chris Goodchild - Best Magic Mirrors
“Busy, very very busy! We’ve been delighted with the quality of visitors. We’ve had conversations with very interested prospects that we wouldn’t have been able to reach without attending the event this weekend."
Martin Hawthorne - Co-op
"It’s been a very productive weekend! Our whole team has been busy across both days, and we’re delighted with the number of visitors we’ve spoken to who know what they want and ask the right questions!"
Musab Haroun - Snowflake Gelato
“We’ve had a number of great enquiries both for new territories and re-sale, so I’m walking away really pleased. Taking part in The Franchise Exhibitions really strengthens and speeds up our franchisee recruitment process."
Imogen Clarke - Home Instead
"The Franchise Exhibition has been amazing! There’s been genuine interest from visitors looking specifically for education or tutoring franchises. We’ve had long and meaningful discussions, so I am really optimistic about what will come next."
Chris Wyle - School is Easy
"It was so busy and we had very encouraging conversations with some very well-informed candidates. It’s been a really productive exhibition - we can’t wait for the next one!"
Jessica Bouscarle - Black Sheep Coffee
