What's new
Franchise Expo Paris 2024: The Exhibition Surpassed Expectations!
From March 16 to 18, with a new dynamic format and enriching programming, Franchise Expo Paris brought together a community of professionals, aspiring eentrepreneurs, and young talents.

The success of this edition lies in its ability to adapt to the changing needs of the sector. Mobilizing nearly 32,000 participants over three days, the exhibition surpassed expectations, even exceeding the previous edition, which spanned four days. With 605 exhibitors, including 513 brands, this edition proved to be the largest since its inception.

The New Generation of Entrepreneurs

The innovative aspect of the exhibition is not limited to its reduced duration but also to its extensive program. Franchise Expo Paris offered an event conducive to exchange and inspiration, with over 157 conferences, workshops, and pitches. Special attention was paid to the new generation of entrepreneurs, with dedicated sessions addressing specific challenges they face, such as financing and management.
Sylvie Gaudy, director of the exhibition, emphasizes: "Franchise Expo Paris 2024 marked the beginning of a new era, with significant attendance from young entrepreneurs and families. We are very pleased to be able to increasingly engage this particularly dynamic audience."

The Presence of Inspiring Personalities

This edition was also marked by the presence of inspiring personalities such as HugoDécrypte, Raibed, and Fatiha Tahri, founders of Pap et Pille, as well as Nina Métayer, world pastry champion. Their testimonies successfully captivated and motivated the future entrepreneurs present.

Institutional recognition was also a highlight of this edition, with the presence and sponsorship of the Ministry of Economy and Finance and the visit of the Minister Delegate for Enterprises, Tourism, and Consumption, Olivia Grégoire. This government support reflects the growing importance of franchising in the national economy.

Véronique Discours-Buhot, General Delegate of the French Franchise Federation, emphasizes: "An edition of which we are particularly proud at the FFF and which once again demonstrates the central role of franchising in entrepreneurship and, more generally, in the economy of our country."

Once Again, "The Place to Be"

Franchise Expo Paris 2024 was much more than just an exhibition: it was a true concentration of inspiration and opportunities for entrepreneurs and brands seeking development. The 42nd edition proved that franchising remains a fundamental pillar of the French economy.
