Franchise 2009: The 17th International Franchise Conference & Expo

Posted by Fitz Villafuerte under Business, News and Events on June 23, 2009

The Philippine Franchise Association will be holding its 17th International Franchise Conference and Expo on July 1 to 5, 2009.

Entitled Franchise 2009, this is the biggest and longest-running franchise show in the ASEAN region.

If you’re interested to learn about franchise development or maybe looking for a franchise business to buy, then this event is for you.

More than that, this event can likewise help you discover suppliers for your business, find new and emerging business trends or find a joint venture partner for your business.

This event has three major activities. First is the Certified Franchise Executive (CFE) Program that’s happening at the AIM Conference Center in Makati on June 29 and 30.

Second is the Franchising Conference that will be held at the Crowne Plaza Galleria Manila in Ortigas on July 1 and 2.

And lastly, the 3-Day Franchise Expo on July 3 to 5 that’s happening at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay.


Personally, I’m only interested and would definitely go to the Franchise Exposition and Trade Show. The last time that I was able to attend this event was 3 years ago and during that time, my purpose was just to look for business suppliers.

But now, I’m seriously considering getting a business franchise and that’s why I’m really looking forward to this event. I’m expecting to see a wide variety of business franchise opportunities and concepts in food, retail, service and other industries.

Moreover, I know that there will be a lot of franchise consultants present during this event and I will be able to ask them a lot of questions about franchising that I can share with you in future articles.

I guess that’s it for now. If you’re interested to become a part of this event, you can go to the Franchise 2009 website to get more details.
