Brisbane Just Around the Corner

11 July 2012

Whether you’re sure that franchising is your next big venture, are just starting to think about it, or even if you’re an established franchisee, this info-packed event is just for you. Head to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in South Bank from July 21-22 to catch the Franchising and Business Opportunities Expo.

What can you expect to see in 2012?

A brand new addition this year includes the Franchise Success Panels. These panels will open up honest and insightful discussion between expo attendees and existing franchisees. Never before have you had the chance to speak directly with those wearing the shoes you’re looking to step into. This is just as important as talking to the franchisors themselves!

From food to retail and financial services, there will be a wide range of franchisors exhibiting in Brisbane this year. Just some that you can look forward to chatting with include Mad Mex, Crust, Skin Naturelle, VIP Home Services, Oporto, Senior Helpers and Home IT Business.

You can also look forward to free legal and financial advice on buying and starting a franchise at the Franchising Advice Centre. Likewise, the FCA (Franchising Council of Australia), ACCC (Australian Competition & Consumer Commission) and the Fair Work Ombudsman will feature stands full of resources to give you the best possible start in business.

A survey of the 2011 Expo attendees found that 63 per cent were interested in buying a franchise, 51 per cent sought to start a business and 42 per cent were exploring other investment opportunities.

Personal wealth was a key driving factor for many attendees, with 59 per cent of respondents looking to “increase personal income”. Another popular motive for attendance was “securing a financial future”, at 49 per cent.

The most popular type of franchise investment opportunity proved to be food and beverage, as selected by 46 per cent of respondents. Business services were also popular at 29 per cent.
