National Franchise Convention

Discover the ingredients to your success and unlock your potential

This year, the National Franchise Convention is putting the focus on what seems to be a fast evolving franchising landscape. Because staying up to date and adapting to change is crucial to not be left behind.

The evolving franchise landscape: embracing change and forging ahead is the theme for the NFC 2019, taking place on the Gold Coast from 20-22 October. If you want to stay up to date on hot topics and relevant changes in franchising, then NFC19 has all the elements to help you do just that.

There’s plenty of food for thought on offer in the NFC19 panels, roundtables, and plenary sessions, as well as opportunities to chew the fat as you meet with exhibitors and network with your peers and colleagues at the NFC social events. The celebration of franchising success at the MYOB FCA Excellence in Franchising Gala Awards Dinner at the conclusion of NFC19 is the cherry on top of this packed program of knowledge and information sharing.

NFC is inspiring, insightful and ultimately valuable. It’s conversation and revelation. It’s an unmissable event for any franchise system or professional who aspires to best practice and business success.

What people are saying about the NFC

Events like the NFC is a great time for networking, it allows people to leave their businesses and concentrate purely in what franchising is about and not necessarily the nuts and bolts of their business.
MICHAEL EYREFounder & MD Blazes Group Of Companies
This is a fantastic opportunity to get up to speed and current with all the legal issues that are happening and franchising. It’s great for people to get together with their colleagues, to take what they’ve learned back to practice and assist their clients.
ALICIA HILLPrincipal MST Lawyers
Events like the NFC are so important to the sector, it brings together the finest franchise brands in a great environment to network, share new ideas, get great new insights and to prepare your business for success for months going forward.
