The Franchise Expo Paris is taking place for the 30th time from 20th to 23rd March. According to the event’s organizers, around 450 companies from 75 branches will be taking part to present their products and services. With approx. 100 foreign exhibitors from 22 different countries, the subject of master franchising will once again be playing an important role at Europe’s largest franchise exhibition. Canada is this year’s special guest of honour.
Almost 31,000 people visited the exhibition last year. In 2011, emphasis is once again being put on the areas of fashion, beauty, health, interior decorating, restaurants and food retailing. The programme of events also includes numerous conferences and workshops, which will be looking at, among other subjects, financing models and legal matters. Furthermore, courses are being held by the ‘École de la Franchise’ in French and by the ‘Master Franchise School’ in English.
The organizers are offering all visitors, who do not live in France, free entry to the exhibition as well as to all conferences and workshops, the International Business Club HSBC and to the Master Franchise Dating section.
