If you’re undecided about exhibiting at the upcoming IFA International Franchise Expo in New York City from June 20 through 22 because your brand is not registered to sell franchises in New York State, relax. The state recently renewed a limited exemption for U.S.-based franchisors and international companies from its franchise-sales regulations, allowing franchisors that are not registered with the state to participate in the expo as full-fledged exhibitors. This is a great opportunity for your company to gauge interest in your concept in the New York City metro area and with international visitors. Before a company can actually sell a franchise in New York State, however, the franchisor still must register. Contact MFV Expositions’ Melissa Van Duren at 201-881-1666 for more details.
