ASIA’S biggest franchise show, Franchise Asia Philippines 2021, will be back in September.
It will showcase a wide variety of franchise investment opportunities as well as learning sessions for franchise industry practitioners. The virtual expo is slated from Sept. 8 to 11 while the virtual conference will run from Sept. 21 to 23.
With the theme, Igniting Recovery, the expo hopes to inspire the Filipino nation to rise up from the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic and pivot to where the opportunities lie.
“Without doubt the past two years have been difficult,” said Philippine Franchise Association (PFA) chairman Richard Sanz, “but we should not let these difficulties weigh us down. Things may have changed but opportunities still abound.”
“That is why we are encouraging everyone to keep your dreams alive,” added PFA president Sherill Quintana. “If you want to start a business and become your own boss, then go ahead. Don’t let the pandemic stop you from realizing your dream because there are still many opportunities out there.”
She added that franchising continues to be the best option to start a business, especially during this time because with franchising the aspiring business owner is not alone, the franchisor is always there to help.
The virtual expo is a one-stop-shop of franchise and other business investment opportunities for aspiring franchisees who dream of becoming their own boss or seasoned entrepreneurs and investors who want to diversify their investments.
The event will feature webinars with topics--How to Invest in the Right Franchise, How to Franchise Your Business and Five Ways to Grow Profits.
The registration to the virtual expo is free.
The virtual conference, meanwhile, will feature more than 20 relevant sessions and is designed to help the delegates prepare for the future of franchising.
One of the most awaited sessions is the C-Suite Forum, which will feature some of the big names and thought leaders in the franchising sector and related industries.
Keynote speakers during the conference are Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez and Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat. (KOC wiht PR)
