Find New Beginnings at the Franchising Expo
Anyone wishing to begin a new life as a small business owner will find plenty of information at the Sydney Franchising & Business Opportunities expo at iCC Sydney 23-24 March.
This enterprising event offers visitors a forum to compare and research a diverse range of franchise opportunities, with investment levels from under $10,000 to more than $500,000.
Companies from a wide range of industries will showcase their business concepts, with the likes of Aussie mortgage brokers, Subway, Signarama, Poolwerx, Yellow Brick Road, Minuteman Press, Wendy’s Milk Bar, Degani, Flatpack Assembly Services and MBE among the 100-plus exhibitors.
There will also be legal and financial advice to buy and set up your new business, and free daily seminars delivered by experts on topics relevant to current and prospective franchisees and franchisors.
“This Expo – and those to follow in Brisbane and Melbourne later this year – are must-see program in Sydney this year, especially the presentations by Rod Young from DC Strategy and Peter Sinodinos from Snap Franchising,” she adds. “It’s an incredible opportunity to hear from people who are experts in their field, to learn from them and to see what drives them.”
Atin Jain was a first-time visitor to the Expo in Sydney last year and was overwhelmed by the opportunities on offer.
“I plan to start a business and there are so many ideas here under one roof,” he said. “I came with my family and we all had a great time.
“I have been looking for a while, but you can get a lot more information in a short time here than on the internet. It also makes a difference meeting franchisors in person, you can get all the answers you need right on the spot.”
Fiona Stacey says both visitors and exhibitors find it beneficial to meet face to face, rather than confining their vital research to online and email contact.
“I think it’s really worthwhile for visitors to look through the list of exhibitors first and do some preliminary research, maybe even set up some appointments at the show. Then you can make the most of your time on the day,” she advises.
“And since Business Franchise Australia readers can register for free entry, there’s nothing stopping you on the path to being your own boss in 2019!”
Sydney’s show will be followed by Franchising Expos in Brisbane 1-2 June and Melbourne 24-25 August.
