​Franchise Expo Paris 2024

From March 16 to 18, 2024, Paris will host the Franchise Expo Paris 2024, the world's leading franchising event.

Entrepreneurs and investors from various countries will gather for this significant event, fostering collaboration and innovation. With more than 500 exhibitors across 90 sectors, the three-day expo offers a comprehensive platform beyond a typical trade show.

A fusion of innovation and insight

With a diverse array of exhibitors ranging from well-established brands to emerging players, attendees will have the chance to explore innovative concepts and engage with industry leaders. Whether you are a seasoned entrepreneur or someone aspiring to start their own business, this event offers a unique opportunity to discover the perfect franchise fit.

What truly sets Franchise Expo Paris apart is its commitment to delivering more than just a visual spectacle. The event unfolds against a backdrop of global insights, offering a program that boasts nearly 300 conferences and workshops. This extensive agenda covers the latest trends in franchising and commerce across diverse sectors. Entrepreneurs attending can expect to gain a comprehensive understanding of the ever-evolving world of franchising.

The expo acts as a nexus, facilitating the convergence of French and international businesses. It provides an indispensable experience for those navigating the complexities of franchising. From insightful panel discussions to hands-on workshops, participants will be equipped with the knowledge needed to thrive in the dynamic world of franchising.

In this year as well, the event has been designed to facilitate the arrival of candidates. They will have the opportunity to explore by browsing through the 10 sector-specific show zones or focus on their chosen business sector. In the same spirit, to facilitate visitor identification, Franchise Expo Paris introduces floor markings for each exhibitor, containing booth numbers and QR codes providing access to brand information and facilitating networking (meeting reservations and chat). Simultaneously, a mobile application is launched, enabling the digitization of the trade show floor plan, program, exhibitor list, and schedules.

On their way, attendees can stop at one of the entertainment areas in the program: the agora, two workshops, and six pitches. The main novelty this year is the presence of a lively TV with daily broadcasts on market trends throughout the day. Another new feature: the "Cities and Territories" space is expanding and now has its own exhibition space, aiming to attract project leaders to their territory.

To prepare for their visit and address key questions, prospective entrepreneurs will be able to participate in various online seminars dedicated to various franchise-related topics, such as "Sector Created for Me," "Low-Investment Start," "Financing Your Business Project," and "Create Your Concept."

Shaping future franchising

According to Véronique Discours-Buhot, General Delegate of the FFF – „With Franchise Expo Paris, our aim is to create a show for entrepreneurs and future entrepreneurs that meets their needs and takes their constraints into account. This reworking of the format was expected by the vast majority of exhibitors and visitors, and we felt it was our duty to put it to the test. "
