Melbourne Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo - the best yet, say exhibitors

19 March 2014

9 September 2013: The renewed and re-energised Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo in Melbourne exceeded expectations, with exhibitors reporting excellent results before the show had even finished.

John Gill from Cleantastic says the first day was fantastic, and he took did three times more leads than the same day last year. “I would say it's the best Friday we've had at one of these expos and we've been doing it every year for 15 years.” 

Lilian Tartaglia from McDonalds was also impressed… “we were quite surprised at the numbers that came through. We had over 150 to 200 people who came and made enquiries, really trying to understand all about McDonald's being open for business. We saw some really strong candidates so it's a great start.”

More than 1000 visitors a day attended the Expo, which was part of Victoria’s Small Business Festival, and was the last in a series of Expos that took place in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

Exhibition Manager Fiona Stacey says Melbourne really stood out among the year’s three shows. “It just had a fabulous feel, a great number of exhibitors and visitors, and exciting show features. It's the major franchising event for Melbourne and it just caps off the year really well.”
