Business Franchise Australia


Considering a career pivot or new business venture?


The Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo is the premier destination for exploring a variety of franchising options and innovative business ideas. This event is the place to start the research, ask the questions and compare the opportunities. 


Join us to explore franchises that match your goals and values. The expo facilitates essential face-to-face meetings with franchisors, franchisees, and industry experts, creating a networking space that fosters valuable connections.



The shows will be running in Sydney from 4-5 May and in Melbourne 17-18 August. Brisbane and Perth will return in 2025. 


Navigating the maze of business opportunities online can be daunting. The expos simplify this process, bringing together a blend of franchisors, legal and financial advisors, and industry authorities. ‘It’s important to do some research online, but nothing can replace meeting real people who can explain the ins and outs of their business venture,” says exhibition manager Fiona Stacey. “And visitors are often inspired by business ideas in industries they had never even considered!”


The Sydney Expo in May is set to feature a range of franchises for all interests and investment levels, including well-known names such as Boost Juice, City Cave Float & Wellness Centre, Crust Pizza and Snooze, as well as emerging brands like Graze Craze, LoKAHI Wellness and Maple Bear. These represent just a few of the diverse franchise opportunities available to those looking to enter the industry.


Fiona Stacey, Exhibition Manager, shares the excitement: “The Sydney event, like our other expos, is a comprehensive platform for visitors to research and compare various franchise opportunities, catering to investments ranging from under $10,000 to above $500,000.”


Fiona adds “The Expo is independent and gives you the perfect chance to see the options, speak with the experts and have all your questions answered.”


In addition to meeting exhibitors, visitors can attend the free seminars held as part of the show. Here you will learn from experts in franchising and hear from successful franchisees, as well as strategies to help you succeed and pitfalls to avoid. 


A highlight of the expo, is The Start Your Own Business Workshop which is an invaluable resource for aspiring entrepreneurs. Held on both Saturday and Sunday mornings, so you can choose the day that suits you best, it offers practical advice on business ownership, how to get started and what you need to know to take the leap.
