U.S. Trade Shows 2015

  • International Franchise Expo 2015, June 18-20, Javits Convention Center, New York, NY

    Sponsored by the International Franchise Association and organized by MFV Expositions, the International Franchise Expo (IFE) 2014 will be held June 19-21, 2014, at the Javits Convention Center, in New York, NY. The International Franchise Expo is an annual trade show representing virtually every industry and investment level. Attendees have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with executives of the exhibiting franchisors and to attend free seminars as well as other symposia sessions from the world's leading franchise experts.

    The franchise industry is a major contributor to the U.S. economy, employing more than 18 million people and contributing more than $2 trillion in economic activity, according to the International Franchise Association, the show's sponsor. Franchise business jobs are projected to grow 1.9 percent in 2013, an increase of 184,000 jobs, according to a recent IFA report. The franchise sector is projected to grow faster than the broader economy. Economy-wide business formation and job growth is expected to be 0.7% and 1.6% respectively, compared to 1.4% and 1.9% in the franchise sector show how important a role franchising plays in the U.S. economy. Franchising accounts for 50% of all U.S. retail sales (just over $1 trillion annually). More than 8 million people are employed by franchises in the U.S. in more than 75 different industries, with an average 8 to 14 employees per establishment.
