September 15, 2023 // // GLEN ROCK, N.J. - MFV Expositions (“MFV”) and Comexposium, the nation's leader in connecting the franchising world with motivated entrepreneurs, announced today the addition of Franchise Expo Austin to its 2024 domestic show schedule.

This news follows the successful conclusion of the 2023 season with record attendance atFranchise Expo South in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on September 8-9, preceded by the International Franchise Expo ("IFE") and Franchise Expo West earlier this year. During the three shows in 2023, more than 10,000 attendees from 73 countries and 49 states interacted with 450+ franchise brands from different industries.

Bringing the show to Austin for the first time in MFV’s three decades of touring will amplify the show’s ability to connect franchisors from around the world with aspiring business owners who are looking to get into business for themselves, but not by themselves.

"We’ve witnessed a surge in demand for more avenues to connect entrepreneurs with franchisors. In response to that demand, we are introducing Franchise Expo Austin to further MFV’s dedication to empowering small business owners and the franchise organizations eager to partner with them," said Martin Joksimovic, President of MFV Expositions. "This expansion positions us to catalyze more success stories and pave the way for numerous business ventures in the year ahead."

MFV’s complete 2024 domestic expo schedule is as follows:

  • Franchise Expo West: Los Angeles, Calif., April 12-13, Los Angeles Convention Center
  • International Franchise Expo: New York City, N.Y., May 30-June 1, Javits Center
  • Franchise Expo South: Fort Lauderdale, Fla., September 6-7, Fort Lauderdale Convention Center
  • Franchise Expo Austin: Austin, Texas, November 15-16, Renaissance Hotel

MFV’s three annual events and the addition of the Austin, Texas, expo are expected to attract another wide range of domestic and international entrepreneurs, comprising the most qualified and motivated prospects in franchising.

Working with the International Franchise Association (“IFA”) in an exclusive partnership, MFV’s 2024 expos promise to be comprehensive showcases of diverse franchise concepts across a wide range of industries, including food and beverage, healthcare, retail, services and more. Attendees will have the unique opportunity to engage directly with industry experts, renowned franchisors and successful franchisees. They will gain invaluable insights into the franchising landscape, discover emerging trends and access cutting-edge resources and tools to empower their entrepreneurial journeys.
