Las Vegas, NV


Presented by: GPM's Franchise & Distribution Group

This year’s IFA Convention theme is “Connect. Innovate. Evolve.” In light of current legislative, regulatory, and economic pressures, now, more than ever, it is essential that we expand our networks and strengthen our existing connections to unite our industry and promote innovation. IFA’s convention—specifically designed for franchisees, franchisors, and our steadfast supplier partners that support the franchise industry—is the forum to build and enrich these relationships and ideas. As always, IFA’s convention offers top speakers who will share best practices as the industry continues to work its way out of these still challenging economic and public policy times. The convention is filled with educational sessions, roundtables, summits, and mini-super sessions designed to give you the latest trends and information in the areas of franchise relations, management and leadership, financing, multi-unit growth, international growth, franchise development, social media, and more.

You’ll also find the industry’s premier exhibit hall showcasing nearly 250 companies offering state-of-the-art tools and resources that franchise professionals need to grow their business.
