International Visitors

International Franchise Show

The International Franchise Expo (IFE) will provide you, the International Investor, an opportunity to meet face-to-face with the most exciting franchise brands from the United States and around the world. Once again the IFE has been selected by the U.S. Department of Commerce as one of a limited number of expos in the world to participate in its Trade Event Partnership Program (TEPP). Sponsored by the International Franchise Association, the International Franchise Expo will be promoted in over 120 countries worldwide.

The IFE continues to be recognized as a first-class international show, where foreign attendees make one-on-one contacts with the top brands in franchising. The Trade Event Partnership Program assists international visitors in meeting with targeted exhibitors, to cultivate partnerships and promote the sale of U.S. products and services.

If you are planning to visit the International Franchise Expo as a representative of a qualified company*, you are eligible to attend under the auspices of the U.S. Commercial Service as part of an official Embassy/Consulate Delegation - even if you prefer to travel alone. International delegates to the show can take advantage of many benefits not offered to foreign visitors at other trade shows. Click here to view a list of countries who promoted in the IFE in 2023.

* Qualified companies are firms that do business outside the United States and whose purpose in attending this trade show is to find U.S. suppliers of goods or services.
