The 15th Franchise and Business Expo, one of the most awaited expo in the Metro, was held last October 14-16 at the World Trade Center organized by the Association of Filipino Franchisers Inc. (AFFI). Co-presented with PLDT SME Nation, BPI Family Ka Negosyo, and Go Negosyo, the expo features hundred of businesses open for franchising or distributorship as well as other businesses that support micro, small and medium businesses in the country.


Dubbed as one of the biggest expo in the Metro, this three-day event targeted entreps and business people who wanted to start their own business or find an existing one that they can manage while pushing the business to its full potential. Through various seminars and talks by different business leaders and empowered entrepreneurs in the industry, AFFI offered opportunities to get exposed, engaged, enriched and empowered while helping other businesses climb the ladder to success.

The 15th Franchise and Business Expo held activities that gave out much information on how to handle a business or how to start one as well as activities that provided an engaging learning experience to potential entrepreneurs and business people. These included the Business Journey Year 2 which taught the steps – license processing, finance and tax management, leadership training – in building your own business. Big players of the franchising industry such as Potato Corner and Sea Oil was there, as well as celebrity business personals such as Nikki Valdez, journalist Anthony Taberna, and comedian Wilma Doesnt.
