Emerging Franchisor Conference


Join us in New Orleans, LA, November 16-18, 2016 for IFA’s fourth annual Emerging Franchisor Conference. Designed for franchisors looking to connect, innovate and evolve their brands to the next level, this conference is a must-attend. You’ll leave with valuable information and insights from leading franchisors that you will bring back to your business to help you grow and succeed in the future.

New to the 2016 Emerging Franchisor Conference is the bonus, pre-conference session titled “7 Secrets to Dynamic Franchise Cultures.” This bonus session will address what it means to have a dynamic culture, what it takes to build that culture and how you go about nurturing a culture with passionate franchisees.

Other session topics at this year’s conference include:

  • The Foundations and Economies of Building a Franchise System
  • How to Build the Right Team to Support Your Franchisees 
  • Your Digital Marketing Toolkit – Incorporating Online Platforms into Your Marketing Strategy

Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in a problem solving exercise to help them make the most of their time at the conference. In small groups, attendees will sit down with an experienced moderator to discuss pertinent issues to their businesses and the take-aways the Emerging Franchisor Conference can provide to help address those issues.
