In addition to the main exhibition hall, BCMM Franchise Expo 2015 will feature a number of seminars and workshops on topics ranging from how to build a successful franchise to transforming an existing enterprise into a franchise business.
There will also be strong emphasis on franchising best practice, knowledge transfer and skills development for young entrepreneurs and SMME business owners.
“Franchising is often a new concept for emerging business owners,” says expo organiser Xolelwa Majiza, of BCMM’s Business Development Unit. “And despite existing business infrastructure and financial support programmes available to business owners in the region, many entrepreneurs are not aware of the benefits of franchising.”
Franchisees exhibiting at the event and those in attendance will be able to network, receive advice and guidance from experienced franchise owners and connect with suppliers and potential customers.
