Franchising Expo


Anyone wishing for a fresh start or new career in 2021 needs to check out the Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo, being held in Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne.

The Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo gives you the chance to discover business ideas and meet face to face with the experts to find the concepts that are best suited to you. The Expo brings together franchisors, franchisees, legal and financial consultants as well as industry and government authorities, giving you the chance to discover a range of business ideas.

Researching a business opportunity can feel overwhelming if you are faced with pages of search engine listings – what you really need is someone knowledgeable to explain it to you in person. That’s why visitors have been coming to the Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo for over 30 years, to meet the experts face to face and compare the opportunities.

‘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!”

To help start your research, we have updated the industry directory on our website to make it easier for you to connect with our exhibitors. You will see exhibitor videos, expanded content and more contact options to help you find your perfect business match.

The show has been refreshed and reinvigorated for 2021 with the new Start Your Own Business Workshop and Franchisee Success Summit, in addition to the popular free 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 skillset, lifestyle and interest,” she says

The Sydney Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo will return from 26-27 March, followed by Perth on 16 May, Brisbane 18-19 June and Melbourne from 20-21 August. For more information go to
