Kwik Kopy Chairman Matthew Penfold will address the Melbourne Franchise Expo Conference this week, at the same place that will host PacPrint in June. The Franchise Expo, April 1-2, is for all types of franchises and is well represented for print and sign businesses, with several being members and exhibitors.
|The last Melbourne Franchise Expo in 2019 drew large crowds of opportunity-seekers|
Taking place in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth, the Franchise Expos have been running for over 30 years and play an integral role it has played in growing Australia’s dynamic franchising and small business industry.
The past couple of years have seen a monumental shift in the workplace and community - more people than ever are looking to work for themselves and take control of their future.
For exhibitors, the Expo provides the chance to meet face to face with quality visitors looking to join a franchise system or jump into a small business of their own. For visitors wondering about the best way to start their own business, the support and structure of a franchise is often the key to success. Being able to speak to franchisors and franchisees, attend free seminars and meet small business advisors and experts all under one roof is highly beneficial.
