SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 31, 2008 - Franchise Update Media Group, the leading industry resource for franchise development, is a sponsor of the second annual Women's Franchise Network Reception, which will be held Thursday, Nov. 6, 2008 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at the offices of Davis Wright, Tremaine in Los Angeles. The topic for this year's event is "Show Me the Money" and focuses on financing options for franchisors in today's uncertain market.

"The Women's Franchise Network Reception is held the evening before the West Coast Franchise Expo opens, and last year's debut was very well attended and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive," said Kimberlie Guerrieri, vice president of marketing for Franchise Update Media Group. "We are pleased to partner with other industry suppliers and consultants to sponsor an event that brings real value to franchisors. The reception provides a unique opportunity for attendees to discuss important issues in franchising with recognized experts, exchange ideas and expand their network of contacts."
