The National Franchise Exhibition has been fantastic for us this year. I have come to a lot of these shows, but this year, in particular, had a really good vibe. Everyone has had great energy and all the leads have been really high quality. We already have a handful of leads we’re really excited about. I’ve also really enjoyed myself.

We have been very impressed with the calibre of enquiries from all over the UK. It is nice to know that people have made the effort to come down. We have had many good leads, with several people revisiting this afternoon for more in-depth discussions.

Lisa Williamson, Training and Compliance Director, No Letting Go

This is our twelfth year exhibiting with Venture Marketing Group. We decide to exhibit time and time again because it works for us and it is our best source of recruitment. We have had a brilliant show with a large number of people now attending our open day.

Ged Comerford, Operations Director, The Christmas Decorators

As a veteran exhibitor here at The National Franchise Exhibition, we love coming as it’s a great place to recruit franchisees. We have generated a fantastic amount of high quality leads from this year’s show.

Tim Morris, Country Manager, Tutor Doctor

This is our first time exhibiting and we’ve had a really good few days. Now we have physically exhibited we can really see the quality of leads and have learnt that the people who have done their research come to The National Franchise Exhibition. We’ve even had a lead come from Belfast especially to meet us. Venture Marketing Group have done a great job in targeting the exhibition to the right people. You can really see the attendees want to change their lives by joining a franchise and Venture have created a platform for this to happen.

David Overton, Managing Director, Optic-Kleer

As regular exhibitors, we find The National Franchise is an excellent opportunity to market the brand to prospective franchisees and meet interesting candidates. It’s been a successful show that has generated some good prospects. We are looking forward to following them up and we are looking forward to obtaining some attendees to our growing network. We also had the opportunity to speak at the ‘Real Franchise Stories’ panel and at one of the bfa seminars. They’re a fantastic addition to the show and well received in helping drive people to our stand.

Driver Hire – Kasia Baldwin, Franchise Marketing Director

The leads that we have spoken to at the exhibition have been of a high quality and the matched meetings organised by Venture have really helped.

Kiara Simmance, Marketing Director, Belvoir

This has been a very successful show for us. The National Franchise Exhibition has been invaluable in exposing our brand to large numbers of potential franchisees.
