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 International Buyer Program. 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 International Buyer Program assists international visitors in meeting with targeted exhibitors, to cultivate partnerships and promote the sale of U.S. products and services.
