The fifth Franchise UAE Expo partners with international franchising bodies

Al Bustan Rotana, Dubai, will host the two-day event on September 25 and 26

The 5th Franchise UAE Expo, the region’s biggest franchise, retail and SME trade event, which will be held at Al Bustan Rotana Hotel, Dubai, from September 25 to 26, has got a further boost with franchising organisations from the Canada, United Kingdom, Italy, Greece, Lebanon, Philippines, South Africa, Turkey, Russia, Thailand and USA extending their support to the event.

“Following the success of the past four editions, the 5th Franchise UAE Expo will be much bigger in scale and scope, taking place at a larger venue,” said Mr. Mansour Al Suwaidi, General Manager of Franchise UAE Middle East, organisers of Franchise UAE Expo. “Our partnership with franchising organisations from different countries will naturally bring a larger number of exhibitors to the 5th Franchise UAE Expo, as the UAE and the GCC region are high on the radar of international franchisors that are looking for new markets.”

The main aim of Franchise UAE Expo is to project the Middle East region as a fertile ground for growing franchising brands, due to its vibrant business environment, multicultural population, strong presence of high net work individuals and high purchasing power among consumers.

“Franchise UAE Expo is driven by the belief that franchise business has become more diversified, bringing new sectors under its fold. Today, unprecedented franchising opportunities are available in several business sectors, including education, apparel, laundry and dry cleaning services, automotive, restaurants, mail and packages services, printing and convenience stores. Franchise UAE Expo provides a strategic platform for new entrepreneurs to tap these amazing new opportunities,” said Al Suwaidi.
