Franchise Expo Paris, the world’s largest franchise event, returned from March 19 to 22, 2023, in a new configuration.
This year, hosted by Infopro Digital, the flagship Franchise event took place in the iconic Pavilion 1 of the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Center.
Franchise Expo Paris: Equipping thousands of entrepreneurs to realize their dream.
Created in 1981 at the initiative of the French Franchise Federation (FFF), Franchise Expo Paris has gradually established itself as the largest franchise exhibition in the world, bringing together more than 500 exhibitors and around 36,000 visitors each year.
For 40 years, this flagship franchise event has been connecting business creators and merchants with major French and international brands, providing today’s and tomorrow’s entrepreneurs with specialized support through various thematic spaces, as well as hundreds of free conferences and workshops. The event also accelerates network development in France and internationally and equips thousands of entrepreneurs to realize their ambition of starting a business or becoming a franchisee.
Now embodying an international dimension, Franchise Expo Paris has become a go-to event for foreign brands looking to establish themselves in France, as well as entrepreneurs in search of a concept, best practices, or partners.
Franchise Expo Paris 2023: a historic turning point for the event.
Owned by the French Franchise Federation, the Franchise Expo Paris trade show will be organized by Infopro Digital from 2023 and for the following five editions. This initiative is part of our group’s commitment to strengthen its presence in the franchise universe, already reflected in our media LSA and Toute La Franchise.
For this new edition, the trade show welcomed 500 exhibitors, including 400 French and international brands, as well as around a hundred expert partners (banks, lawyers, accountants, consultants, federations, media, cities, and territories…) to support business creators and project leaders across a wide range of sectors, from automotive to construction, including food retail, hospitality, business services, and healthcare.
Franchise Expo Paris: The 2023 edition marked a turning point in the history of the event with three significant innovations.
