The aspiring franchisees who attended it, could evaluate and compare over 500 exhibitors – the various franchisor brands – present under one roof and thus, find the right match for them.
Furthermore there were 3 parallel conferences held, on ‘Licensing’, ‘Entrepreneurship’ & ‘Franchising’. All the various people considering to buy a franchise, the various franchisors willing to take up new franchisees on board and in fact, the entire industry was present at the exhibition.
SHEMROCK & SHEMFORD Group of Schools registered an Impressive Presence
Our presence at stall numbers – 76, 77 & 111, was strongly noticed and appreciated by several aspiring franchisees. Our team in yellow Chhota Bheem T-shirts stood, out among all the 500 exhibitors in the expo. There were people from all over the country to meet us and see if the SHEMROCK & SHEMFORD Schools offer was the right match for them.
We displayed various items which helped them evaluate our offerings as per their requirements. With Preschool, Primary and10+2 School Franchise offers, we offered different packages starting from 6 Lakhs onwards and mutually discussed the issues of each prospective franchisee to help them decide which one made sense for them. We also had “first time” offers for bookings done on the stall.
In addition, we did a Lucky draw at our stall and gave away a holiday package worth Rs. 15,000, which our visitors had the chance to win, by just dropping their visiting cards. Being the most popular event in the country for those considering a franchise, no wonder, our stalls were visited by more than 30,000 people.
