E-Franchise Days 2023, a 2-day B2B-matchmaking event consisting of pre-scheduled meetings between brands, investors, and franchisees seeking to develop their footprint within the GCC and broader Middle East and North Africa region, will be hosted online out of Dubai.
E-Franchise Days 2023 is set to take place on October 4th and 5th and aims to encourage the development of international brands in the MENA region and support the regional expansion of local brands. The event was launched based on the success of The Franchise Talk, a subscription blog with over 66,000 regular readers and known as the voice of franchise in the Middle East.
Many brands are participating in the event from various sectors that include food and beverage, health and beauty, retail, education, and so much more where they will have their products and services featured across the E-Franchise Days’ ecosystem to potential investors, franchisees, and developers in fast-growing markets including the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Egypt, and Türkiye.
The MENA franchising sector is rapidly increasing in business prospects with a current worth of over USD 30 billion, and around 80% of all retail sales in the GCC alone are generated from international brands, making the area very attractive for foreign investors.
Eng. Anas Al Madani, Vice Chairman and Group CEO of INDEX Holding, stated: “The UAE has proven to be a unifying force for regional and international business collaboration as the country is home to over 200 nationalities with various needs and interests.”
He continued to say, “The advantage of E-Franchise Days is that it will be convenient for everyone to meet without having to make extensive travel plans and waste time on independent research, everything will be provided for them on a unified platform.”
Investors and franchisees with an investment capacity of USD 100,000 and up to USD 5,000,000 can take a deep dive into each participating brand through the ecosystem’s platforms where they can either get a snapshot of information through The Franchise Talk’s editorials and Brand Directory or hear from them live during a Tuesday Webinar and answer questions live from the audience. The ecosystem’s platforms are purposely built to support the decision-making process and have convenient pre-scheduled business meetings via the Franchise Business Hub during E-Franchise Days.
As an added benefit, the E-Franchise Market will be launched simultaneously with the event as a 365-day online marketplace designed to connect potential investors and franchisees with franchise opportunities around the world.
Those who are looking for franchising opportunities and to attain key insights into establishing business within the region without the need to travel can easily register their interest on the E-Franchise Days website, www.efranchisedays.com.
E-Franchise Days is organized by INDEX Conference and Exhibitions Org. LLC and supported by its ecosystem of The Franchise Talk, Franchise Talk Brand Directory, Tuesday Webinars, and the E-Franchise Market.
