With less than a month to go to FASA’s Franchise Week which incorporates the International Franchise Expo, the Franchise Convention and FASA’s Awards, we invite all FASA members and the general public to participate in celebrating franchising’s recovery and its future success.
THE INTERNATIONAL FRANCHISE & ENTREPRENEURIAL EXPO (IFE 2010)
The franchise industry’s showcase will once again take place at the Sandton Convention Centre from the 6 – 8th May and will be a testament to the tenacity of franchising even in tough times and be amongst the first business sectors to show a speedy recovery. The expo will highlight FASA members as well as a range of business opportunities. The popular Speakers Corner, sponsored by Standard Bank will focus on educating the public on franchising, funding and business success. To pre-register visit www.ife.co.za
FASA CONVENTION FRIDAY 7TH MAY – COMMITTEE ROOM 4
– SANDTON CONVENTION CENTRE
As franchising pulls itself out of the recession and looks to its future growth as the economy’s most successful business format, FASA will be hosting a one-day convention that will look at the economic outlook and consumer trends in post-recession, the impact of the electricity increases and hear from international experts on new franchise trends. A talk on the impact, both positive and negative, that the Soccer World Cup will have on logistics, transport, supply, deliveries etc will be followed by a report back by those at FASA who lobbied government on the regulations of the Consumer Protection Act. A lunch to honour the finalists and winners in FASA’s award categories of FASA Entrepreneur 2010, Most Promising Female Franchisee and Most Promising Black franchisee is included.
