Franchise Expo South Brings Together Thousands of Prospects From South Florida, Latin America and the Caribbean

MIAMI BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - December 1, 2010) -  Many entrepreneurs dream of starting their own business and every year thousands consider franchising as a way to achieve business independence. Sponsored by the International Franchise Association, the 5th Annual Franchise Expo South provides prospective franchisees from South Florida, Latin America and the Caribbean with the unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with hundreds of the most accomplished franchised systems from around the world. Held at the Miami Beach Convention Center from January 14-16, 2011, Franchise Expo South also features educational seminars about the franchise industry and symposiums approved for Certified Franchise Executive (CFE) accreditation in addition to the franchisor exhibit on the tradeshow floor.

"For franchisors, Franchise Expo South provides the best opportunity to speak directly with both South Florida and international prospects about the benefits of franchising," said Tom Portesy, president of MFV Expositions, producers of Franchise Expo South. "Despite the economy, franchising continues to grow because of well established business models, proven systems and the fact that many who are out of work want to go into business for themselves."

Franchise Expo South is designed specifically to allow prospective franchisees to discover which types of businesses match their needs. The tradeshow allows franchisee candidates to do their research face-to-face and meet with franchisors to ensure their potential investment is an ideal match. The expo floor will feature more than 200 exhibitors from food to professional service franchises along with thousands of attendees. 

"Franchise Expo South is a great way to increase brand awareness in an especially competitive selling environment," said Portesy. "Exhibitors have the opportunity to stand apart from the crowd and connect directly with prospects to increase their reach across the region."

Franchise Expo South is promoted nationally through publications like Entrepreneur Media, USA Today and the Wall Street Journal. Targeted promotion includes network television, radio, direct mail, online messaging and through the network of event sponsors supporting the expo. Complimentary admission to Franchise Expo South is available though many of the expo's media and sponsor partners.
