IFA 2021 Convention

IFA's Annual Convention is franchising's biggest event for business development and personal growth. Whether you're a franchising veteran or just starting out, there are sessions designed for everyone. This is your chance to network and chart the future of the industry.
February 1 - 26, 2021

Virtual Event,
United States

Our IFA 2021 Convention in February is going virtual! 

Given the current restrictions in Las Vegas due to COVID-19, our annual in-person gathering will be transformed into a virtual experience, with a potential in-person component later in 2021 if the circumstances allow. 

Virtual gives us the opportunity to reimagine and to connect with more people than ever before, in the United States as well as internationally. We will be able to showcase more of the strength that we have together as a franchise family, during and leading up to the virtual event. Offering a virtual conference will give us access to more brands, speakers, and innovative and inspiring content than ever before.  #WeAreIFA

We'll be bringing our best-in-class education, thought leadership, best practices and connections, including a virtual exhibit hall with cool networking and business development opportunities. All we need you to bring is an open mind! We will cover the need-to-know topics around diversity and inclusion, the COVID-19 impact on business operations and growth, along with the policy and election impact on our members and the franchise community — giving you a strong kickstart to 2021.

Stay tuned for more details to come, including topics you get to vote on, creating an agenda that meets your educational needs, dates over the month of February to mark your calendars, and ways that you can help us go viral with digital promotions and incentives.

Join the IFA 2021 Convention this February to kickstart your year with inspiration and new ideas.
