FRANCHISE EXPO PARIS confirms its 2020 edition that will help the French economic revival

The French franchise federation and Reed Expositions France confirm Franchise Expo Paris 2020’s edition from October 4 to 7, 2020, pavilions 2 & 3 in Porte de Versailles. Franchise Expo Paris offers a tried and trusted, forward-looking event at a time when every economic actor must play their part in the recovery.
The show’s highly-professional team will support exhibitors, guarantee regulatory compliance, and ensure that all health and safety measures are in place to provide a safe environment for every participant. By holding this show, the French Franchise Federation and Reed Expositions France seek to send a strong and optimistic message to entrepreneurs and potential franchisees. Franchising is a resilient entrepreneurship model and a wonderful asset for France’s economic revival. This show will also provide an answer for the many people looking for new professional directions during this crisis period.
Reviving the economy needs every player on the pitch, and Franchise Expo Paris stands out as THE show for recovery in France and internationally.
“I want to say a big thank you to all the exhibitors and partners of this special edition of the show. Whether they’ve been our loyal partners for decades or are coming this year for the first time, all fly the flag of franchising and showcasing the strengths of this business model. Despite the constraints, we can work together to organise this 39th edition. We strongly believe that we play a central role in the economy, and this show is the most tangible demonstration possible of the franchising approach and its values of mutual support, solidarity and teamwork. This year’s challenges are formidable, but that bodes well for boosting the motivation and energy of participants – exhibitors and visitors alike. We cannot wait to meet everyone and make this edition a success.” Sylvie Gaudy, Division Director in Reed Expositions France
“As the French government announces its revival plan, the keys to recovery are in the hands of those working at the coalface, the entrepreneurs who strive every day to re-launch the economy and boost job creation. More than ever, our role as a federation is to support our members and potential future franchisees in developing their businesses. More than ever, we stand beside them to champion this business model, which has stood the test of time and weathered economic storms. We’re still here, and we really want to make this 39th edition a positive and confident event that provides a big boost during this recovery period.” Véronique Discours-Buhot, general delegate of the FFF
An evolving, value-creating edition, designed to meet visitor’s new expectations
Holding this 39th edition sends a very positive signal out to entrepreneurs, confirms Philippe Jambon, Founding Chairman of Jeff de Bruges: “I am one of the longest-standing regulars of Franchise Expo Paris, and it’s partly thanks to this show that I’ve been able to accelerate the growth of my network. I’ve met my partners here and been able to share my experience. It’s really important that we work together as one, and stay fully committed to bringing to fruition this Franchise Expo Paris edition, because we need it now more than ever. The strength of franchising lies in not being alone or isolated. I think this period is a good way of illustrating all the benefits of the business model and to continue moving forward.”
The Franchise Expo Paris teams remain as professional as ever in this unprecedented health crisis:

Exhibitors and visitors can rest assured that the teams have further enhanced their event arrangements to ensure strict compliance with all regulatory precautionary measures (floor markings, mandatory mask wearing, numerous hand sanitizing stations). This protocol is also in the process of being approved by the APAVE certification body (safe & clean label). Franchise Expo Paris will accordingly have a system for managing and regulating flows of participants to ensure compliance with the maximum capacity of 5,000 people in one place, which will remain in force at least until 30 October. Visitors and exhibitors alike will thus be able to do business and network in complete safety.
Whether you’re an existing franchisee looking to grow, a future franchisee, a franchisor, or future franchisor, Franchise Expo Paris more than ever offers an event to help you make your plans a reality.
