Franchise Expo Paris with the USA as its partner country
The Franchise Expo Paris, which, the organizers say, is the largest franchise fair in Europe, is taking place from 23rd to 26th March 2007. More than 75 different branches from the franchise economy and network sector will be presenting their services and products at the Parisian Porte de Versailles exhibition centre. Over 30,000 visitors are expected to travel to the event and almost 20 conferences and workshops have been planned as well as a master franchise meeting.
The exhibition also aims to develop and extend brands and trade names internationally. For this reason, a large number of regional and international brand producers will be taking part in the exhibition, under the management of the French Franchise Association, to launch, expand and export their franchise models.
The partner country for the Franchise Expo Paris 2007 is the USA. Eleven leading American franchise networks which are looking for partners throughout the whole of Europe will be present at the event.
