It give me a great pleasure to invite you to the 5th edition of the International Franchise Exhibition (IFE) which will be held in ADNEC in Abu Dhabi on 25th and 26th of October 2017.
Organizing the 5th cycle of this specialized exhibition comes within the Chamber’s efforts in developing and supporting this type of activities and mechanisms and to create an investment and business environment necessary to ensure the success of projects.
Organizing the exhibition also comes to spread awareness and knowledge about franchising and to preserve the rights of local investors in the franchise and to save him from any unhealthy practices, and informing him with the available investment opportunities available in this vital and important field, which has become one of the poles of modern economy.
I hope that the exhibition will encourage Emirati business entrepreneurs enter and benefit from franchising projects and to spread awareness of the system as a tool to develop investments and businesses as well. This exhibition will also aim at creating opportunities to create successful initiatives between foreign companies, Emirati business entrepreneurs and owners of small and medium enterprises, and to take a closer look at the best experiments and international practices in franchising through cooperating with international franchising companies.
I am pleased to invite all franchisors from companies and establishments and franchising experts to participate in this important international economic event. I am also pleased to invite young Emirati entrepreneurs and investors as well to benefit from this event and what it will offer from huge and divers investment opportunities.
I would like to thank everyone for his or her support and awareness in joining us in this event that is being organized for the fifth time in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
