International Franchise Expo

Following the huge success of its debut in New York City, the International Franchise Expo will return to The Javits Center in June 2013.

The new East Coast location for the long-established exhibition – which had previously been based in Washington, D.C. – helped to draw record crowds over all three days.

The event attracted 14,313 visitors, who had the chance to meet over 330 exhibitors from all sectors of the world’s franchise industry, as well as enjoy one of the most comprehensive conference programme’s ever held.

A delighted Tom Portesy, President and CEO of MFV Expositions, said: “The reaction to the IFE going to New York City was everything we hoped for and then some.

“In our 25 years of producing franchise events, regardless of success, this is the first expo where every single exhibitor was delighted with the results. It was anextraordinary weekend for franchising, the International Franchise Association and MFV Expositions.”

The International Franchise Expo takes place in The Javits Center, New York City, from June 20 to 22, 2013
