New Year. New World. New Opportunities


Anyone wanting a new start in 2021 needs to check out the Franchising & Business Opportunities Expos, being held in Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne showcasing a huge range of franchise systems and small business ideas.

Exploring a change of career in 2021 is going to be top of mind for many people, and the expos are the place to start the research, ask the questions and compare the opportunities.

With a resurgence in the franchising industry, so many new business opportunities are now available. The Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo gives you the opportunity to discover exciting franchise brands that align with your goals and values. You will have the chance to establish connections through face-to-face contact that allows successful partnerships to flourish.

The shows will be running in Sydney from 26-27 March, Perth 16 May, Brisbane from 18-19 June and Melbourne from 20-21 August. New features include the Start Your Own Business Workshop and the Franchisee Success Summit.

Over 100 brands from a broad range of industries will be exhibiting in Sydney. Exciting concepts on show include Jiffy Clean, Chicken Treat, Darbecca,  PhysioInq, City Cave, Euclideon, Hey Juice, Ninja Kids, Green Motion, Okami Restaurant, Pattysmiths Handcrafted Premium Burgers, Paint and Sip Studios, Rugbytots and many more.

“Small business is the driver of our economy and many people find it offers a fantastic lifestyle and steady income,” says Exhibition Manager Fiona Stacey. “But it’s also crucial to do your research and make sure you choose the best concept for your circumstances. The Expo is independent and gives you the perfect chance to see the options, speak with the experts and have all your questions answered.”

The Franchising & Business Opportunities Expos brings together franchisors, franchisees, legal and financial experts as well as industry and government authorities, giving you the chance to research a range of business ideas all under one roof. In addition to meeting exhibitors, visitors can attend the free seminars held as part of the show. Here visitors will learn from experts in franchising and hear from successful franchisees, as well as strategies to help you succeed and pitfalls to avoid.

‘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!”

Whether you are an experienced small business owner or just thinking about a new start, you will find everything you need to start or grow a business.
