Why attend

By attending the International Retail Franchising Summit you will join an important gathering of delegates seeking to increase their knowledge and understanding of franchising their brand in these challenging times. The advent of omni-channel retailing has put all retailers on the back foot to the point where everyone is looking for new answers to a multitude of challenges thrown up by technology advances and increasingly demanding customers. Whether you are a retailer or a franchisee this conference will cover all of the key topics to maintain or develop success in international franchising strategy. You will you hear from over 20 retailers/franchisees and through a series of case studies, panel debates and speeches gain great insight into successful franchise retailers operating techniques. With a number of lengthy networking breaks you will also have various opportunities, so rare in your busy schedules,  to discuss critical issues with your peers in an open and relaxed environment.  YES I WANT TO ATTEND
