Hundreds of Top Brands Will Connect with Prospective Franchisees at 3-day Event
Anyone with an interest in the franchise industry can network with leaders of top brands during the International Franchise Expo (IFE) set for June 2-4 at the Javits Center in New York City. Participating brands include Burger King, Carvel, FASTSIGNS, Liberty Tax, Midas, Pearle Vision and Subway, among others.
For 30 years, the annual IFE has provided a venue for investigating individual brands and learning more about the industry as a whole. Throughout the weekend, attendees can interact with franchisors and participate in more than 25 free educational seminars and 13 in-depth workshops, some for certified franchise executive credit, on topics such as “The A to Z’s of Buying a Franchise” and “Franchising your Business.”
The event, sponsored by the International Franchise Association and hosted by MFV Expositions, allows “passionate business minds from all over the world” to come together “and embark on an exciting journey into franchising,” said Sheila Fischer, president of MFV. “IFE truly gives entrepreneurs the tools for success by creating an environment that provides resources, mentorship, and unique networking opportunities to make dreams of business-ownership become a reality.”
IFE is supported by the U.S Department of Commerce, which offers the International Buyer Program recruitingthousands of qualified international buyers to IFE for business-to-business matchmaking. The IFE program also promotes the sale of U.S. products and services.
