WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (June 22, 2022) – Business advisors joined together to network, discuss industry trends, and cheer each other on at the National Conference of Transworld Business Advisors®. More than 200 franchise owners and agents attended the Denver event, making it the biggest ever held by the brand.
"We're extremely pleased that so many of our entrepreneurs joined together for this important event," said Andy Cagnetta, CEO of Transworld Business Advisors (TBA), the largest global network of business brokers. "Not only was it our biggest conference, but their energy and enthusiasm made it one of our best."
