Get ready Perth, there’s no better time to be your own boss
“The time is right and the team are very excited about working with exhibitors and the Franchise Council of Australia to make it a professional and relevant event that showcases the opportunities presented by franchising” says Exhibition Manager Fiona Stacey.
“The mining boom may have slowed but Perth remains a busy and cosmopolitan city” she says. “The only difference is that there are now thousands of highly qualified and resourced people seeking to work for themselves. Exhibitors have asked for focused and low-cost event to access this market”.
The Perth Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo will be a little different to the established shows running in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Each exhibitor will be restricted to a simple booth display with a table and brochure rack rather than a full blown stand.
Fiona explains “running the event as a showcase will allow exhibitors to try out the market without blowing the budget. Visitors will still be able to see all the options, talk to the names behind the brands and attend business seminars. And for the first time we can make it free for visitors to attend”.
Around forty companies will be on display. They will include household names as well as brand new systems. Most will be franchises but there will also be general business opportunities, magazines, government agencies and consultants who can help you franchise your own business.
“Of course a lot of this information is available online” says Fiona. “But nothing can replace the value of meeting someone face-to-face to discuss your dream business. Visitors can check out all the opportunities and ask the hard questions. At the same time exhibitors can identify their best prospects. It is a really efficient way to bring the right people together”.
The Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo will be running at the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre from 6-7 May 2016. Entry is open to anyone looking to get into business for themselves.
