##Franchising - Speak to the Experts
Negotiating the landscape of franchising can be a difficult ride – that’s why our Parent Publisher, [Franchise Development Services](http://www.fdsfranchise.com/), is on hand to offer expert independent advice.
The National Franchise Exhibition is also almost upon us, taking place at the NEC in Birmingham on Friday 3rd – Saturday 4th October. That represents your opportunity to speak directly with founders and franchise experts in your chosen field and gain information first-hand about franchise opportunities within your sector.
It’s a great event and you can find out more about how you can [register to attend for FREE with the UK Franchise Directory here](http://www.theukfranchisedirectory.net/page/venture-marketing-group/register-for-the-national-franchise-exhibition.php).
In the meantime, we thought we’d get the ball rolling with some expert speakers of our own, and below are three videos from UK Franchise Directory companies introducing some of their key tips and tricks for successful franchising.
You can find out more about the individual companies simply by typing their names into the search bar in the top right hand corner of our site – enjoy!
