The Annual Franchise Event Offers Opportunities to Network and Explore Franchise Ownership
MFV Expositions and Comexposium will bring together business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs during Franchise Expo West from March 31 to April 1 at the Phoenix Convention Center. The annual franchise event is open to all.
Forged via a partnership with the International Franchise Association, the event will feature a wide range of emerging and established franchise brands – literally A to Z, with exhibits by Amerisleep to Zaxby’s Franchising, for instance. In between are Jimmy John’s, My Eyelab and Salty Dawg Pet Salon … and many, many more franchise brands. Suppliers also will host exhibits at Franchise Expo West. The Phoenix event represents the first in a series of three franchising expos from MFV Expositions this year. Franchises participating the expo require minimal investments – sometimes just $5,000 – for an entrepreneur to enter the world of franchising.
Why Go to Franchise Expo West?
Through one-on-one discussions with franchise industry representatives as well as the expo’s educational presentations, attendees will gain insight into trends and franchises’ expansion goals as well as develop new business leads. Franchise Expo West has scheduled more than 25 educational seminars to inform franchisees and franchisors about many aspects of the industry. Industry experts will lead sessions that, for example, delve into strategies and tactics crucial to profitability for owners of small businesses.
Attendees can tailor the expo to suit their needs by choosing which seminars to attend from the two-day event’s agenda; you can register and see programs at franchiseexpowest.com. Specific program topics include tips for buying a franchise, becoming a franchisor, the metaverse and artificial intelligence in the franchise industry’s future, women in franchising, minorities in franchising, marketing advice and more.
Annie Bradbury of Franchising Magazine USA recommends the expo as providing “the opportunity to meet so many amazing people while simultaneously gathering a wealth of information for your business and yourself. People come from all over to find out more about franchising and to see for themselves why it’s such a popular business model.”
Sheila Fischer, president and CEO of MFV Expositions, believes Phoenix is an ideal location for West and West Coast entrepreneurs to convene. “With Phoenix having the fourth-strongest economic and population growth rate in the U.S. and the state offering no corporate franchise tax, bringing our first event of the year here brings an unprecedented opportunity to grow and open business for yourself, but not by yourself,” she says. “Franchise West Expo is the right place to learn more and explore opportunities of the healthy business climate in the western U.S.”
