Franchising is quickly gaining popularity in the tourism industry. The reasons for this are easily understandable. By becoming a part of franchise a small travel agency gains the benefits of being under a brand that is already known in the market and keeps its independence in operations and management. At the same time, large tourism companies and networks choose to develop using the franchising model because of the flexibility that it offers. Other benefits that make franchising more attractive are the low level of risk, wide range of services and quick return on investments.
The organisers of the UITТ'2017 exhibition have decided to help the exhibitors and visitors to establish business contacts as part of the Franchising at UITT programme. Franchising offers will be collected and arranged in a special section of the official website. Exhibiting companies offer different types of programmes to potential partners that are looking to be a part of the franchising network of their brand. Unlike independent agencies, franchisees receive significant support from the brand, including advertising support at the national level as well as the automation of their activities, the high quality product, discounts and bonus programmes and important legal assistance and staff development programmes.
If you are the representative of a travel agency and you are interested in the stable development of your business, the Franchising at UITT programme will help you to make your choice.
