THE IRISH FRANCHISE SHOW AND STARTUP EXPO DUBLIN

PRESS RELEASE

After careful consideration MFV NSE ltd. and Comexposium has made the executive decision not to proceed with our annual Irish Franchise Show, Dublin. The event was due to be held in collaboration with a new Start-up business show (Startup Expo IE), 7th and 8th September 2018 at RDS Dublin.

This was not an easy decision to make, though we feel this is the right one for everyone in the industry who has supported the event over the years. The Franchise Show will be looking into organising the Irish event biannually; this will be announced once a decision has been formally made.

For now, more focus will be given to our International Franchise Show, ExCel London, where will be hosting an Irish pavilion on the 5th and 6th April 2019. This will give our Irish exhibitors and visitors the opportunity to explore Irish brands amongst over 10,000 potential investors, current franchisors and over 160 brands across the UK’s biggest franchise show.

After consulting with our exhibitors, partners and the industry as a whole, we are confident in our decision and would like to welcome our Irish Franchises, visitors and partners to our Irish Pavilion at the International Franchise Show early next year.

We would like to thank the Irish Franchise Association for all their support over the past two years, and we are pleased to announce that we will continue to work with and support the Irish Franchise Association moving forward.
