IFA to Host Annual Convention in Las Vegas
The International Franchise Association, the world's oldest and largest organization representing franchising globally, is hosting the #IFA2017 Annual Convention in Las Vegas on Jan. 30 to Feb. 2, 2017, with emphasis on providing education to drive performance, growth and sustainability of franchise brands.
The #IFA2017 will offer world-class speakers, providing more than 50 educational sessions and programs across four days. New York Times best-selling author of “The 4-Hour Workweek” and noted entrepreneur, Tim Ferriss, will address the 4,000+ franchise professionals as Keynote speaker on Jan. 30, 2017. Other notable General Session speakers include Anytime Fitness co-founders, Dave Mortensen and Chuck Runyon, and New York Times best-selling author and leading business consultant, Marcus Buckingham.
This year, attendees will be able to sign up for a new post-convention workshop, the Emerging Franchisors Bootcamp, in which participants will have the opportunity to meet executives who have walked in their shoes. Founders of well-known franchise companies such as BrightStar Franchising, LLC, FASTSIGNS, and Edible Arrangements will serve as mentors and share their stories of success. The bootcamp will act as a roadmap for emerging franchisors looking to learn the ins and outs of the business.
