Between January 29 and February 1, hundreds of franchisors, franchisees and suppliers will gather for the industry’s premier event: the International Franchise Association’s annual convention. And as a recent article in Global Franchise Magazine notes, #IFA2017 couldn’t be coming at a better time.
With key issues like the National Labor Relations Board’s joint employer standard, shifting overtime regulations and a new presidential administration set to be sworn in at the start of the new year on the line, it’s never been more important for the franchising community to come together and figure out what’s next. That’s why #IFA2017 is offering multiple educational and entertaining sessions, panels and presentations on those topics and more for industry professionals.
Robert Cresanti, IFA President and CEO, told Global Franchise Magazine, “You will discover new tools and solutions for your businesses, you’ll network with old friends, and even more importantly, connect and make new ones.”
Those connections are invaluable for members of the franchising community. Not only do they enable executives and business owners to learn new ways to boost their business, they also help establish best practices that have the potential to determine the success of the proven franchise business model in the months and years to come.
