The International Franchise Show Welcomes Back a Familiar Face



The International Franchise Show is thrilled to announce the return of Simon Chicken as the Sales Director.

Simon launched The Franchise show back in 2007. Since his departure in 2014 Simon had always missed working on the show; especially after the time he had invested, seeing the steady growth each year, and the new client relationships he had formed.

“I always kept a fond eye on the event and was tempted back after seeing the number of visitors the show attracts, the quality of visitors and exhibitors, and the  change of dates to the 5th and 6th April”.

Christian Yandell (Event Director) comments; “I am certain everything is in safe hands following Simons return, Simon has a sound understanding of franchising and the franchise model, he has re-joined with the sole aim of making the show the best it can be”.

The Franchise Show at ExCeL London has seen significant growth over the years making it the biggest franchise exhibition in the UK, both in terms of exhibitor and visitor numbers. Couple this with our recent acquisition by Comexposium (the 3rd largest event organisers in the world) we are confident that 2019 will see our biggest event in the UK to date.
