The three day show consists of a veritable “who’s who” of the franchise industry allowing prospective small business owners to meet face to face with franchise representatives from more than 60 business categories.  Many of the exhibitors are developing their brand in the United States and internationally further contributing to economic growth.

It's no surprise that franchising accounts for a large part of the recovering American economy, contributing significantly to two critical elements - job creation and GDP – and outperforming the economy as a whole in 2012. According to the International Franchise Association’s (IFA) 2013 economic outlook, franchising is projected to add more than 10,000 franchise establishments, account for nearly 8.3 million jobs by the end of 2013 and contribute a GDP of $472 billion.

“Mirroring this steady growth is the increasing number of franchisors participating in trade shows to strategically grow their system,” said Jim Mastandrea, Group Show Director of MFV Expositions. “The IFE also draws qualified attendees ranging from recent college grads to retirees looking to get back in the business world.  The expo truly covers all ends of the spectrum – from out-of-the-box, niche franchises to well-known, global brands.  Attendees are sure to find a concept that fits their interests and lifestyle.”

Industry experts will host educational symposium geared toward every stage of the journey. Offering more than 70 free seminars along with nine in-depth symposia, the IFE offers a wealth of knowledge into the franchise industry. Some of the symposia topics include The A to Z’s of Buying a Franchise, Franchising Your Business, and Global Franchise Expansion: Strategies for Lucrative and Planned Growth.

With more than 90 countries represented from around the world and more than 150 U.S. Embassies through their Foreign Commercial Service Offices actively promoting the IFE within their regions, the IFE has been a significant catalyst to the global expansion of franchising.
