The convention is one of the largest franchise conventions in the Greater Toronto Market.  This particular show is put on by the National Event Management group.  This convention was again an enormous success for the convention management group.  In excess of 6,000 tradeshow visitors were in attendance for this year's event.

The value of a franchise exposition such as the Toronto franchise model is to present a wide variety of franchise organizations in one room and create an open environment for franchisors and franchisees to meet, discuss and review the value of the different franchises present.  The Toronto show was an excellent case of this model at work with an extremely diverse and unique set of franchise brands presenting to a wide variety of wanna-be entrepreneurs and potential franchisees.  The room was buzzing with questions, discussions and overall interest in what franchises might make the most sense for each franchise visitor.

The presentation was aimed to provide information for franchisees considering purchasing a franchise or starting a new business.

Mr. Conner discussed several key topics with attendees covering a wide range of issues.  Whether to consider starting a new business, purchasing an existing business or investing in a franchise business opportunity.  The discussion covered legal, strategy, operations and business planning issues inherent in starting a new business.  Mr. Conner was clear in his message to the group that starting a business was not for everyone and that even more to the point that not everyone makes a good franchisee.  A significant portion of this decision making process relied on the individual doing an honest self-evaluation of themselves before deciding which route to take with their business endeavors.

  1. I certainly agree with Mr. Conner's statement that starting a business is not for everyone. Everyone should know that starting a business is hard work and you have to be in it for the long haul if you want to be successful.

  10. Good content, although I would have appreciated more specific details related to Canadian small business funding options, it was still a good shot in the arm for anyone considering a small business start up. Also some good points related to franchising not being for everyone.
