About the event

Whilst many UK brands are familiar with wholesale, agency, concession and consignment arrangements as models of international expansion, they may be less aware of the franchising model. 

With sluggish growth in the UK economy and the emergence of an increasingly globalised and tech-savvy consumer, there is huge potential for brands to access new markets by expanding their physical and digital footprint overseas.

The franchise model, re-booted for the 21st century consumer, is a highly attractive way to grow value and create successful, profitable and sustainable partnerships.

Join DIT to unpick franchising for the Fashion and Food sectors.

With our experienced panel of C-Suite level speakers, including Master Franchise partners from the Middle East and Cyprus, Retail and Food Execs and Legal and Banking experts, we will be exploring:

  • The models
  • Legal considerations
  • Best practice in selecting partners
  • How to work with franchisors and franchisees - panel session

In collaboration with Field Fisher LLP

Please note that places for this event are limited to one delegate per company.
