Franchise Asia Philippines, the biggest franchise show in Asia organized by the Philippine Franchise Association (PFA) will take the center stage this month and next, showcasing anew a wide variety of franchise investment opportunities as well as learning sessions for franchise industry practitioners.
The international virtual conference is set on September 20 to 22 while the international franchise expo is slated on October 14-16 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
With the theme, Live.Love.Franchise, Franchise Asia Philippines 2022 brings back the international expo face-to-face while the conference widens its online reach as it continues to reach out to more delegates here and abroad. 

“We are excited of what our show this year brings in terms of conference topics that will be tackled and the business opportunities that will be showcased,” says PFA President Sam Christopher Lim, “we are indeed on track to the golden age of franchising in the country. Things may have changed but opportunities still abound.”

 “That is why we are encouraging everyone to keep your dreams alive,” says PFA Chairman Sherill Quintana. “If you want to start a business and become your own boss, then go ahead. Don’t let any challenges stop you from realizing your dream and your dreams for your family.”  She adds that franchising continues to be the best option to start a business especially during this time because with franchising you are not alone, the franchisor is always there to help.

Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri and Trade Secretary Alfredo Pascual will deliver their keynote addresses at the three- day International Virtual Conference.  The trade chief will share DTI’s prospects, opportunities and priority programs to propel the growth of the country’s retail trade, commerce, MSME development and entrepreneurship as we move forward in the post-pandemic future.
