We had six booths at the show representing all of our brands. Although I have not received a total count, we engaged easily over 1,000 people, no including the international guests we met with for master license purposes. It would be safe to say that our expectations from the IFE will be no less than 15 franchise sales along with several master license arrangements for countries outside the U.S.

We have exhibited at the IFE every year it has been held in New York City. We are happy to find that this show was another huge success for us and our 9 clients that also were exhibitors at the show this year. Thank you MFV for hosting another wonderful event. We look forward to many more successful years together.

The IFE is an extraordinary event. At Golden Corral we never miss it. Our booth is always busy, but just as importantly, we love to walk the floor and see what all the other concepts are up to. Nowhere else is there such an amazing variety of franchise companies in one spot.
Bob McDevitt - Senior VP Franchising, Golden Corral
We scanned almost 300 leads over the 3 days. We found that most attendees were educated and knowledgeable about franchising in that the already knew what an FDD was. We completed two sales at the show. Franchisors and attendees emailed us for more information â€“ they reached out to us before we could reach out to them. FranchiseGrade found the IFE to be an amazing Expo, and will be booking the WCFE and FES.

We very much enjoyed attending your show, and all our companies that exhibited in JETROâ€™s booth found the expo very satisfying for their future business. I really appreciate that you gave us a very good venue this year, too and thank you for your kind hospitality during the whole Expo. I am very much looking forward to working with you next year as well.
