Franchising Expo


New Year, New You in 2020

Anyone wishing for a new start in their life and career in 2020 needs to check out the Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo, being held in Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne this year.

A step on the path to small business success for over 30 years, the Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo brings together franchisors, franchisees, legal and financial experts as well as industry and government authorities.

Whether they are experienced small business owners or just thinking about a new start, visitors will find everything they need to start or grow a business.

The show has been refreshed and reinvigorated for 2020 with new ‘Be your own boss’ workshops, and a Franchisee Success Summit, in addition to the popular seminar program featuring industry experts, franchisees and franchisors.

Exhibition Manager Fiona Stacey says the secret of the Expo’s success is the diversity of business ideas on offer.

“Whether it’s food & beverage, finance, fitness, retail or home services, there is something for every skill set, lifestyle and interest,” she says.

“We often see visitors who are inspired by business ideas in industries they had never even considered!”

The first Franchising Expo for 2020 opens 20-21 March at ICC Sydney in Darling Harbour.

“ICC Sydney is a stunning venue, and we are looking forward to an action-packed show,” says Stacey. “This year we are introducing new workshops and a summit aimed at franchisees, which will provide invaluable information and advice.”

Visitors to ICC Sydney can meet the people behind well-known brands such as Battery World, Poolwerx, Roll’d, Fully Promoted, The Graffiti Eaters and Snap Print & Design as well as emerging concepts like Spanish Donuts, 1800 Blinds and Hey Juice.

“As the new year comes around, many people are considering their lifestyle and career choices, and there is no better place to get advice, be inspired and find your dream business than this Expo.”

Sydney’s Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo will be followed by shows in Perth on 3 May, Brisbane 19-20 June and Melbourne 20-21 August. For more information go to
