Buying a Conference or Events Franchise

The events and conference industry in the UK serves both domestic and commercial markets, and there are lots of events franchisees successfully earning a living in a variety of niches. 

If you choose the commercial side of the events industry, you’ll need to be an excellent negotiator. You need to be able to sell your corporate event or conference to both attendees and sponsors, while at the same time securing the best deals on event space and conference rooms well in advance.

At the domestic end of the scale, the focus is more on what you can offer with your events business; most of your clients will be planning a party of some kind, so the venue and the guest list is already in place. They’re looking to you for your expertise or the product you can offer. Party equipment hire businesses, such as bouncy castle and marquee hire businesses, often make very successful franchises. With the right franchisee training, a party planning business can also be highly lucrative. Wedding services such as venue styling and catering are popular choices, and enable you to earn a living as a key player in one of the most important days of a couple’s life together. 

Somewhere in between the corporate and domestic event markets, festivals can provide excellent earnings for mobile catering franchises. If you can secure a pitch at a popular local festival, and book enough festivals throughout the year, you can earn a significant fraction of your annual earnings over a series of busy weekends.

The common thread in all events & conference franchises is that the franchisee will be required to work very hard, at a very high intensity, for short spells of time. You must be able to deliver what you have promised on a specific day, for a specific period of time. The time-sensitive and absolute nature of events businesses mean that, if you purchase a franchise, your attention to detail and your ability to deliver on your commitments will be constantly tested. This same time-sensitive quality can also make the events business model one of the best models in terms of earnings-per-time-spent.
