Why do EWIF host a national conference?

Hosting a National Conference is just one of the ways that EWIF supports both its members and those women looking to get into franchising. As EWIF members, women (and men!) are able to attend various events throughout the year to network, and gain support, knowledge and advice for their own businesses and for those who are looking to get into franchising and need a helping hand.

The NatWest/bfa survey for 2015 revealed that women now account for only 17% of franchisees in the UK which is a 5% decrease since 2011, making the EWIF cause more important than ever. EWIF are looking to change the face of the franchise sector so that women have a much larger presence than they do currently and to balance out the ratio of men to women in the franchise industry.

By attending events such as the EWIF National Conference, members open the doors to networking with some of the biggest brands in the franchise industry. Many businesses grow through networking and gaining advice from those business owners who are experiencing exactly the same challenges. For those looking to take their first steps into the franchise industry either as a franchisee or a franchisor, attending EWIF meetings and conferences is a great introduction and a way to speak to those already in the industry.
