Global Franchise Partners (GFP) are pleased to announce that they have been invited to be involved and attend the ABF Franchising Expo 2012 from 13 to 16 June 2012 in São Paulo, Brazil.
In 2011, Alan Branch of GFP was invited as an international franchise expert to this extraordinary Franchise Expo where over 46,700 people attended in search of franchise opportunities. Shortly after the 2011 event it was announced that the Expo was expected to drive R$300 million ($160 million AUD) in business from more than 400 exhibitors.
In 2012 the Expo is planned to expand to over 30,000 m² at the Expo Centre Norte where anticipated attendance is to be in excess of 50,000 people.
Arrangements have been made for GFP to have a franchise stand which will be available to display leading Australian franchise brands with the support of the Franchise Council of Australia (FCA).
During last year’s Expo, Alan was invited with other international representatives to speak about the world leading success of Australian franchising and many of you may now have viewed the interview that he provided which now has over 7000 hits.
At the 2012 Expo, GFP has arranged with its Brazil partner to have Portuguese representatives at the GFP stand ensuring that the Australian brands making their first investigation of Brazil and Latin America will gain maximum exposure. Alan Branch has again been asked by the Brazil Franchise Association to speak which will provide him with an opportunity to show the Expo audience the fantastic franchise brands from Australia.
GFP can only make this offer (at a very cost effective discounted rate) available to a limited number of franchise brands to appear at its expo stand. If you are interested in having your franchise brand represented at one of the largest franchise expos in the world in one of the fastest growing and dynamic countries in the world please review the details attached and contact either Gidon Rosing [email protected] or Alan Branch [email protected]
