Franchising & Licensing Asia 2013
Returning for its 8th edition is Franchising & Licensing Asia (FLAsia) – The International Event for Entrepreneurship, Business Opportunities & Intellectual Property Rights in Asia – which will be held at Marina Bay Sands Singapore from October 3-5, 2013.
Themed “From Dreams to Reality”, FLAsia 2013 allows franchisors to achieve dreams by providing the avenue which congregates potential franchise owners and investors, thereby aiding their expansion and success. Yet, businesses cannot overlook the reality – adequate preparation prior to franchising is vital.
Visitors too can turn their dreams into reality with the array of franchise options to select from. However, owning a franchised business is not just about being the person at the top. Commitment and hard work ensues.
Together with an International Conference & Workshop, which looks at the latest developments and opportunities in the franchise industry, this annual exhibition and conference brings together industry leaders and gives insights on best practices.
FLAsia has proved to be an excellent platform that brand owners choose to showcase innovative and unique business concepts, as our exhibitors and visitors from 2012 remarked.
Mr Raimond Svanks, Asia Regional Manager Market Developer of Stenders (Latvia), said: "This is our first year exhibiting the Stenders franchise opportunity in Asia. We are very satisfied with the attention we are receiving, and the serious business inquiries. We need to follow-up on the tremendous amount of enquiries received. Our goal is to secure two master level franchise owners in the Asian region."
Mr Alain Leduc, International Franchise Manager of Delifrance (France), said: "We met with many international Asian visitors at FLAsia. The exhibition is excellent for sales development for all of Asia."
Mr Ahmad Naim Jaafar a visitor from Malaysia said: “I was there on Saturday, and honestly I am impressed with the numbers of exhibitors and their offerings.”
Mr Grant McLauchlan, Managing Director of CrestClean (New Zealand), said: "We generated 6 potential master franchisees at FLAsia 2012 from countries such as Indonesia, Singapore, India and Malaysia. FLAsia is a great event and we felt very welcome."
