IFA Events

It is our goal to bring together strong, intelligent and diverse leaders to help broaden the industries experience. One way that we do that is by offering multiple meetings and conventions throughout the year. We engage top-level talent as speakers to share the latest information, strategies and marketplace trends with program attendees to assist them in the successful growth and expansion of their brand. We also provide unparalleled networking opportunities to program attendees so they may build relationships and share their experiences and best practice stories with each other to improve the operations of their franchised businesses.

We develop programs focusing on various hot topics of interest including the franchise and business law, international expansion, franchise development techniques, leadership development, public advocacy, technology advancements, franchise relationships, finance, operations and more.
