Programme Spotlight

Meeting the Challenge. Driving Opportunity.

The National Franchise Conference 2023 will take a refreshing approach to give delegates what they need to meet the challenges and explore possibilities to drive opportunities. Over the last years we have developed a unique conference format that encourages the open sharing of knowledge and experience, through keynotes, workshops, interactive discussion forums and networking opportunities.

We can’t wait for you to join us in “Meeting the Challenge. Driving Opportunity.” at the National Franchise Conference in Christchurch.
