Franchise expos tend to feature booth after booth of franchise company representatives hawking their wares…which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But, it’s nice to take a break from the fast-paced activity on the show floor once in a while.
The West Coast Franchise Expo
This franchise expo provides numerous opportunities to take a break from the show floor by attending educational franchise seminars that are free for registered expo visitors to attend.
“Our goal is to provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs — whether novice or experienced — with an approachable, educational conference that leads them to their next business venture,” said Tom Portesy, CEO of MFV Expositions. “Small business continues to drive our economic recovery, with franchising outpacing the rest of the economy.
