Save the Date: Ninth Annual Multi-Unit Franchising Conference March 24-26, 2010 in Las Vegas

Attendance Expected to Exceed Last Year's Record-Breaker

SAN JOSE, Calif., August 3, 2009 - Franchise Update Media Group (FUMG), the leading industry resource for franchise development, today announced that the ninth annual Multi-Unit Franchising Conference will be held March 24-26, 2010 at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas. Attendance for 2010 is expected to be even higher than the record-breaking 2009 conference, which hosted 525 attendees, 78 exhibitors and 80 sponsors, a 54% increase over 2008.

"This event has steadily grown in popularity over the years, because it is designed, developed and executed by leading multi-unit franchise operators," said Therese Thilgen, president of FUMG. "We host the event, but all of the workshops, roundtable discussions, breakout sessions, and keynote speakers are determined by our multi-unit franchise board members."

Multi-unit, multi-brand franchises are now the majority in the industry, and one of the most important drivers of economic growth in the country. Despite the tough economy, industry leaders are continuing to grow, finding ways to capitalize on lower costs for real estate, an expanded labor pool, and access to funds from private equity and other investment groups.

"Our Multi-Unit Franchising Conference provides the ideal platform for multi-unit operators to discuss the strategies, programs and tactics that are enabling them to achieve their growth targets, as well as share best practices, explore new concepts, and network with peers and suppliers," Thilgen said. "The board members are scheduled to meet the last week in August to begin planning the conference and setting the agenda. We look forward to another strong program of compelling content, and even stronger demand for conference participation. Stay tuned for details!"

Franchisors and suppliers interested in sponsorship information should send an email to or call Sharon at 800.289.4232, ext. 202.
