FASA PUTS THE SPOTLIGHT ON FRANCHISING

The focus will be on franchising in the first week of April 2016 with the Franchise Association of South Africa celebrating the success of the franchise business format that contributes 12.5% to the country’s GDP.  Ahead of the International Franchise Expo which takes place at the Sandton Convention Centre from the 8th to the 10th April, FASA will honour its members at the Awards for Excellence in Franchising which takes place on the 6th of April followed by the association’s annual franchise convention on the 7th April.  Whether you are a franchisor, a franchisee or a member of the public interested in franchising, don’t miss these important events that offer a platform for participation and networking.  As a recipient of our newsletter, take advantage of the complimentary IFE voucher which you can print and present for free entry to IFE.
