Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo returns to live events in Melbourne!

Visitors to the Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo in Melbourne in April welcomed an incredible two days on the show floor with the return of live events.

Exhibitors and visitors were pleased to be back face to face and to get down to business. “It was RAMazing to be back at the franchising expo engaging with franchise-minded people who are ready to become their own boss and carve out their future success for themselves and their families. We were energized by the buzz in the hall and delighted with the interest in our franchise offering. Well worth coming to Melbourne for, and can’t wait to get to Brisbane and Perth later in the year.” said Lisa Jackson from Rams.

Susan Toft from the Laundry Lady said it was an exciting couple of days. “We found the Franchising Expo a great experience to get our brand in front of motivated people who are looking to start their own business.”

“I think it goes to show how vibrant and successful this industry really is,” says Exhibition Manager Fiona Stacey. “We were quietly confident, but it was still a huge relief to see crowds lining up for the opening. It marks the return of live events to Melbourne and huge interest in working for yourself.”

Choosing the right franchise is about matching your personality, skills, experience and motivation to a particular franchise. It's about getting a good fit between you and the business.

The Sydney Franchising Expo in August will offer exciting concepts like

Dream Doors, Fernwood Fitness, Noddle Box, Ogalo, Oliver Brown, Pizza Hut, Poolwerx, Signarama, Snap Fitness and The Graffiti Eaters.

“We are thrilled to bring the Franchising Expo to Sydney” says Fiona. Like its sister Expos in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, the Sydney event will offer visitors a forum to compare and research a diverse range of franchise opportunities, with investment levels from under $10,000 to more than $500,000.

There will also be legal and financial advice to buy and set up your new business or franchise and the Franchise Council of Australia (FCA) will be on hand to provide information and answer any franchising queries.

One of the most popular features of the Franchising Expo is the free seminar series at the centre of the show. In Melbourne, the seminars featured keynote speakers Andrew Morello from The Entourage, Diana Williams from Fernwood Fitness and Marcel Lal from InXpress with interesting panel sessions with David Mansfield from Quest Apartment Hotels, Darren Lane from Degani, and Sean O’Connor from Craveable Brands.

Gain the freedom and flexibility of being your own boss with an established brand and support network behind you. Visit the show to explore a wide variety of franchises, advisors and business ideas, all under one roof.
