Why visit?

The Opportunities

The Business Opportunities and Franchise Expo is keenly focused on two goals: putting business opportunities in front of eager entrepreneurs; and giving BEE businesses a platform to showcase themselves to corporate procurement officers.

This focus and specialisation ensures that visitors know exactly what to expect of the expo and can visit with the certainty that their needs will be met. The end result of this has been relationships (and a reputation) that are based on trust.

Visitors value their ability to approach exhibitors directly and to interact and engage with them via one-on-meetings – where they can explore in great depth the opportunity each exhibitor is presenting. After all when an exhibitor potentially holds the key to your successful future as a business owner, you want to do your homework and you want to do it well!

Corporate procurement officers similarly value the ability to search for a range of BEE suppliers, under a single roof, along with the chance to meet the owners of these SMME businesses and to begin forging relationships.

The Workshops

In addition to investigating their opportunities, visitors look forward to participating in innovative and interactive workshops that cut to the chase on topics of relevance, concern and importance to entrepreneurs.

Every year, high profile, successful personalities and experts are carefully selected to present workshops on a variety of topics that appeal to both visitors’ informational needs and their desire for insight into the world of business ownership and the tools that will make their venture into it a successful one.
