International Franchise Exhibition
The Right Place at the Right Time…
With the spotlight firmly on South Africa after our incredible hosting of the FIFA Soccer World Cup, franchising is poised to take off as the country uses that impetus to grow its economy. South Africa is at the centre of change and innovation in Africa. The turning point in Africa’s future lies with private enterprise and small business development and FASA, through the IFE 2011 Expo, is planning to bring together the many players who can make a difference through franchising – in order to create wealth, transfer skills and create employment.
Showcasing the Best of the Best…
IFE 2011, which takes place at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg from the 26 -28th May 2011 will be Africa’s franchise window to the world, reflecting a wide range of business sectors, from fast food to automotive products; from home services to education; from business-to-business services to entertainment and leisure; from retail to real estate. At the Expo you will find low-entry level franchise opportunities that will help grow the SMME sector to premium branded franchise opportunities with proven track records. The support element of legal, IT and marketing will also be part of the Expo. Furthermore, our other Whichfranchise sponsor, FNB, will also be there to advice, discuss and answer any of your funding questions.
 Educating on Franchising…
FASA will be running a Speaker’s Corner which will feature talks on various subjects pertaining to franchising and funding. All your questions on franchising, funding and business in general will be answered at these sessions which are held daily. The talks are free to anyone visiting IFE – seating on a first come, first served basis.
 Show Hours: 10h00 – 18h00 daily
