Exhibitor and visitor registration for Singapore’s first virtual franchising and licensing event opens tomorrow

Asia’s key international event for entrepreneurship, business opportunities and intellectual property rights goes online!

Singapore, 17 August 2020 ‒ Presented virtually in 2020, Franchising & Licensing Asia (FLAsia) is the key international trade event that congregates top franchises, licenses, brands, and business concepts from all over the world. 

An extensive array of virtual exhibits featuring new and innovative business concepts will be presented, providing attendees with a variety of choices.

Individuals seeking business and investment opportunities can take their pick from popular Food & Beverage categories, Beauty & Wellness, Health & Fitness to Printing/ Printer Consumables and more. Franchising and licensing queries will also be answered on-the-spot by brand representatives via live text and video chats.

The organiser has been working with the Taiwan External Trade Development Council to present a Taiwan pavilion at FLAsia each year. This year is no different. 

Mr Chua Wee Phong, Chairman of Sphere Exhibits Pte Ltd, the organiser of FLAsia 2020 said: "Such international participation is made possible because we are no longer bound by physical distance or a long list of health safety measures. The possibilities are now endless. We can meet with people from all over the world and create business opportunities during and outside of business hours.”

Attendees are encouraged to tune-in to FLAsia’s popular Educational Conference, a complimentary webinar programme aimed at helping visitors gain greater knowledge on IP and legal aspects of franchising, as well as to pick up tips and tricks from exhibitors’ success stories. Notable IP lawyers, Certified Franchise Executives (CFE) and Practising Management Consultants (PMC), will be speaking.
