The Northern Franchise Exhibition, EventCity Manchester 12 - 13 Jun 2020

The Northern Franchise Exhibition which was due to take place on 12 & 13 June at EventCity, Manchester, has been postponed in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The health and wellbeing of our visitors, clients and staff is our top priority so we are working away behind the scenes to rearrange the event when it is safe to do so. As soon as new dates are available, the website will be updated and all existing tickets will be transferred. 

In the meantime, the website remains an invaluable source of information, jam-packed with inspiring franchise opportunities, the latest industry news, and a wealth of educational advice articles

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch via email at

We hope you and your loved ones stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you to a Franchise Exhibition when the time is right.
