It's showtime with franchising taking centre stage at IFE 2014
The International Franchise & Entrepreneur Expo (IFE), the premier showcase for franchising on the African continent, takes place from the 10 - 12 April 2014 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Sandton, Johannesburg. The Expo, owned and organised by the Franchise Association of South Africa (FASA) attracts thousands of people looking for that special franchise or business opportunity that will propel them into a new and successful business career.
FASA's Franchise Expo, which attracts over 100 local and international exhibitors and thousands of people from all over Africa and abroad, is the ideal place to see what's on offer and to be able to have face-to-face interaction with franchisors.
Although the recession has taken its toll, franchising has fared far better than independent businesses and now, more than ever, as spending patterns change, businesses will continue to thrive and flourishing new industries will start to see the light. Globally, emerging markets will be the ones showing the strongest growth as people, of which the youth make up a quarter in South Africa, will need to live, eat, drink, sleep, dress, work, commute and consume. This means that YOU, as a prospective business owner, need to get in on the ground floor for future success!
