Entering your organization into the Global Franchise Awards 2021 has never been easier, and the benefits of doing so vary from exceptional coverage, to market leverage, to the chance of finding your next trailblazing master franchisee. And with the entry deadline of March 29 at 5pm GMT fast approaching, the time is now to make your move.

Here are just six of the many reasons why entering this year’s awards could be the next best step for your international brand:

Gain leverage over other brands

Winners of a Global Franchise Award don’t only become part of an elite franchise alumni; they also feature extensively in targeted distribution in the year ahead, being promoted at franchise expositions, airport and heliport lounges, and business centers.

Have your concept assessed by a prestigious judging panel

This year’s panel is headed by franchising veteran Robert Cresanti, president and CEO of the IFA, and chaired by Pip Wilkins, renowned CEO of the British Franchise Association. The pair are joined by a host of equally experienced franchising professionals who can recognize industry-leading talent from a mile away.

Be showcased in magazines, podcasts, and other multimedia outlets

As well as having your victory covered extensively in an awards-focused special edition of Global Franchise magazine, your brand will receive consistent coverage in the following year’s instalments, as well as the revered Global Franchise Podcast and across the highly-engaged Global Franchise social media platforms.

Receive outstanding digital coverage

Last year, the Global Franchise Awards reached over 500,000 industry members through numerous social media posts, newsletters, and magazine articles. This was over 150,000 more people than the year before, and it’s estimated that this trend could continue with the Global Franchise Awards 2021 being the biggest installment yet!

Attend a star-studded awards ceremony

The Global Franchise Awards 2020’s ceremony took place at the IFA conference in February 2020, and saw some of the industry’s biggest names come and support the frontrunners in franchising.

With 2021’s ceremony scheduled for the IFA conference in (date TBC), you could be rubbing shoulders with the titans of industry in one of the world’s most in-demand franchising hotspots.

Get your brand in front of franchisees and investors

With all of the above taken into account, you can be sure that entering the Global Franchise Awards 2021 will position your brand as an attractive investment opportunity for your future franchisees. Showcase why you’re the best, and reap the international rewards.
