August 30, 2010 // Franchising.com // Los Angeles, Calif. – Best practices, a next-generation information management system, a revamped web site and a targeted social media marketing strategy were hot topics at the Sixth Annual Mathnasium Franchise Convention, held this summer at the Walt Disney World Swan Resort in Orlando, Fla.
This year, 200 attendees were present at the two-day convention, a record-breaking turnout that reflects the math learning center franchise's rapid growth over the past three years. Franchisees from across the U.S. and around the world listened to informative presentations from high performers in the Mathnasium system and industry leaders, had a sneak peek at new initiatives from corporate headquarters, and swapped ideas with their peers during round table discussions.
Also featured was an exhibition hall where companies showcased a wide range of products and services of interest to Mathnasium franchisees. The event culminated in an awards banquet, where top franchisees were recognized for excellence in various aspects of the Mathnasium business.
"In terms of providing superior franchise support, the convention is a top priority for us at Mathnasium," says Mathnasium Director of Franchise Operations Mary Feldman. "Our annual event presents a valuable opportunity for our center owners to network with their fellow entrepreneurs in a dynamic and motivating environment, gaining inspiration from others and recharging their batteries in time for the coming school year. Ultimately, this exchange raises the bar for our entire system and gives franchisees more tools with which to build stronger businesses, provide their students with the best math education possible and make meaningful contributions to their communities.
"In fact," Feldman adds, "we're already thinking of ways to make next year's event even better."
