Franchise Marketing Awards Go International While Calling For 2009 Entries

Tuesday, November 11, 2008

The Franchise Marketing Awards, one of the most highly coveted accolades recognising marketing excellence across the UK industry, has called on the UK and international franchise community to submit entries for the 2009 initiative. The closing date for entries is Friday 13 February 2009. Now in its third successful year, the Franchise Marketing Awards have added to their established categories by launching Best International Marketing Campaign. This will offer franchisors from around the globe the opportunity to gain worldwide recognition for their superb marketing campaigns.

The Franchise Marketing Awards recognise the industry's most innovative and effective marketing campaigns for products, services and franchisee recruitment.

Judged by an independent panel of experts, they reward companies that have raised their public awareness and, as a result, achieved sustainable growth through excellent marketing.

The awards are open to all UK and international franchise companies, both large and small, from all sectors, and cover a range of categories for both product and service marketing and franchisee recruitment.

Ed Byrne, well known TV comedian and ‘observational stand up', will announce the winners at a ceremony and dinner on 20 March 2009 at The Marriott London, Grosvenor Square. The Awards evening will attract all the leading names in the industry, and takes place on the first night of The British and International Franchise Exhibition.
