Globally renowned gym franchise Anytime Fitness has been announced as the event sponsor of The National Franchise Exhibition on the 20 and 21 of February (NEC, Birmingham) and The British & International Franchise Exhibition on 13 and 14 March (London Olympia).
Founded in 2002, Anytime Fitness is the fastest-growing gym franchise in the world, with nearly 3,000 gyms serving more than 2.5 million members across five continents. After exhibiting at The Franchise Exhibitions for three years and seeing huge success, the gym brand is using the 2015 exhibitions as its main strategy for recruiting franchisees.
Karl Dietrich, Business Development Director at Anytime Fitness, comments on the exciting new sponsorship: “Due to our incredible growth over the last two years, we are in a position to let everyone know Anytime Fitness is becoming the fitness franchise brand of choice. The exhibitions have been key for us to gain momentum and brand recognition in the UK market.”
Now in their 20th year, The Franchise Exhibitions are the UK’s leading franchise events. Bringing UK and globally recognised brands together under one roof, they remain the only franchise expos to be recognised and accredited by the British Franchise Association (bfa).
Planning to open a further 50 clubs in 2015, Karl comments on the significance of The Franchise Exhibitions: “They are so important in the UK. The franchise market here is different to other countries, and it is important for potential franchisees to meet and get to know the brand before committing to further discussion.”
As the first event of 2015, The National Franchise Exhibition offers visitors a unique opportunity for anyone looking to run their own business to meet with Anytime Fitness and other top brands and discuss their next career move. The two day exhibition will showcase a broad spectrum of industry sectors from well-known brands including McDonald's, Home Instead Senior Care, Minuteman Press, Kare Plus, and EweMove. Also on offer are a variety of free seminars, workshops and panel discussions which offer inspiration and advice on franchising and the successes and challenges involved with running your own business.
Admission to these events costs up to £15 at the door; however visitors can gain free entry by registering online and entering the promotional code ANY1.
