Global Franchise Forum in Bucharest - Afterthought
Franchise Pool International (FPI) held its 9th Global Franchise Forum in
Bucharest, Romania. With 50 participants from 15 countries it was a resounding
success again. In total 12 franchise brands presented their concepts. During
1-on-1 meetings they were also able to speak about their expansion plans
directly with the local FPI partners.
At FPI’s Global Franchise Forum, franchisors have the unique opportunity to approach franchise experts representing 40 different markets and ask specific questions about their target markets’ opportunities and challenges.
In addition to almost all European countries, FPI partners cover Southeast Asia out of Singapore, the Middle East out of Dubai and Canada/USA out of Toronto. We can facilitate expansion into 40 different markets. Usually brands won’t move to 40 countries at the same time. However, each visiting franchisor has the opportunity to talk to franchise experts from their defined target markets. These discussions allow franchisors to gain valuable insights into the unique challenges and opportunities that each market presents.
FPI organizes two such events every year. These meetings are designed to support the international growth aspirations of global franchise systems. Our consultants serve as advisors for market entry. FPI also provides a network supporting the search for master partners in the new markets.
The next Global Franchise Forum will be held in Oslo, Norway on 14th to 16th May, 2019.

Global Franchise Forum Naples 2018
Our Forum in Naples this year was a great success again. We counted 65 people coming from 25 different countries including Europe, Canada, USA, Australia, South Africa and the Middle East. 2 days of marvellous wheather in the South of Italy made it easy to communicate, share information and prepare business for franchisors and international brokers.
If you are interested to join us for our next Forum in Bucharest Romania on November 2nd and 3rd 2018 - get in touch with us.
Following some impressions from our Forum in Naples.
