October 2009: Franchising & Trade Exhibition
The 24th Franchising & Trade Exhibition is being held at the Fiera Milano in Milan from 23 to 26 October 2009. All those interested in franchising can travel to the event where they will be able to learn more about national and international franchise concepts.
Besides providing franchisors with the opportunity to present their systems, the Franchising & Trade will also be featuring conferences and events for both exhibitors and the public. Subjects that are being looked at in detail include: ‘How is the franchising market evolving?’, ‘Which are the most interesting sectors today?’, ‘How to know what to pick when you decide to open a franchise?’ and ‘What kind of financing is available and how can you apply for it?’.
Furthermore, the exhibition will once again be offering its ‘Matching Programme’, which was launched for the first time last year. According to the organizers, this new service is geared to help franchisors boost their business and meet new partners. This year, franchisors, franchisees and buyers and sellers have the opportunity of meeting each other both online and on-site.
Last year, the F&T show hosted 238 exhibitors, 27 of whom were from outside Italy, and welcomed more than 10,000 visitors. To learn more about the exhibition, visit the website: www.franchising.fieramilanoexpocts.it. (kbp)
