If you have been thinking of attending but haven’t made up your mind yet, we’re giving you the top reasons why you should not miss The Franchise Expo this year.
- Face-to-face interaction with potential franchisors
Prospective franchisees have an excellent opportunity to meet face-to-face with franchise representatives and ask all the important questions before making any decisions. This is an important step in the due diligence process.Talking one-on-one with a franchisor can be intimidating. Franchise shows can help reduce the stress of this situation because many shows are designed around making this conversation easier. Make sure you do your homework and prepare a list of all the questions you’d like to ask.
- Free Franchise seminars
The Franchise Expo is being held on September 11 and 12, and has free seminars and workshops lined up for you. Attending these seminars will be an excellent chance to get expert franchise advice from experienced business professionals. Seminars will give you insights into owning and running a successful franchise business. Experts in the field will also surround you, so this would be the perfect time to network.

It is not every day that you find so many like-minded individuals gathered in one place with the common agenda of discussing the franchise system, the franchise model, and franchising business opportunities. This makes the Franchising Expo a great networking opportunity and a chance to meet face-to-face with individuals that, one day, you may start a business with.
- Insight into latest industry developments
Franchisors exhibiting at the Expo are fully prepared to showcase their latest developments and knowledge about the franchising industry hoping that you show some interest and finally choose to do business with them. Hence, it’s an excellent opportunity for potential franchisees to extract as much information as possible to make a well-informed decision.
