Franchise Expo Austin is Set for November 2024
MFV Expositions and Comexposium, whose multi-day shows connect the franchise brands with potential franchisees, just added Franchise Expo Austin to its 2024 calendar. This first show in Austin will expand the opportunities for global franchisors to meet with entrepreneurs who see the franchise business model as a way to set up shop with the backing of a proven brand.
In a news release, Martin Joksimovic, president of MFV Expositions (a subsidiary of Comexposium), said there’s been a surge in demand for franchises to be able to promote themselves and find investors. “In response to that demand, we are introducing Franchise Expo Austin to further MFV’s dedication to empowering small business owners and the franchise organizations eager to partner with them … and pave the way for numerous business ventures in the year ahead.”

MFV’s three continuing events, plus the addition of the Austin, Texas, show, are expected to draw an array of American and foreign entrepreneurs and exhibitors. Here’s the full schedule:
