Globally, the franchise industry generates more than $2 trillion. In the US alone, the franchise industry generates in excess of $757 billion, and employs over 15 million American people.
Beyond the world’s largest brands, most franchise companies seek international development. A recent (2016) IFA (International Franchise Association) member survey found that:
• 74% of franchisors want to start or accelerate international operations,
• 72% percent believe international growth is important to future success of the sector,
• 25% generate 25 to 50% of revenue internationally
The World Franchise Investment Summit makes it easier for franchisors to expand internationally.
It introduces them to inward investment agencies and government bodies who are able to facilitate a “soft landing”.
Over 600 delegates (well-established franchisors, multi-unit owners and high-level investors) are all looking for new locations to base their franchise. As well as access to over 70 exhibitors from across the globe, delegates will be able to attend region specific seminars and pre-arrange 1-2-1 meetings with relevant parties. The show is at ExCeL London on 3rd & 4th April 2020.
MFV expositions has over 25 years of experience organizing the largest franchise exhibitions around the globe.
