Franchise Association of New Zealand Conference 2012

Franchise Association of New Zealand Conference 2012
12 - 15 July Copthorne Hotel & Resort
Bay of Islands

This year’s Franchise Association Conference will be held in the Bay of Islands, Northland.  This location remains completely unspoilt and with its ancient Kauri forests and hundreds of kilometres of stunning coastline, the region is a natural paradise.

The Copthorne Hotel & Resort Bay of Islands will be a superb waterfront conference venue and offers uninterrupted Bay views surrounded by 60 acres of subtropical gardens and the historic Waitangi Treaty Grounds.  The Grounds are described as New Zealand’s premier historical and cultural site where our nation’s founding document, the “Treaty of Waitangi”, was signed.

The Franchise Association of New Zealand’s conference will bring together the franchise community over 3 days to: network, exchange ideas and interact with other systems and service providers; catch up on industry trends and hear what experts in the growing field of franchising have to say.  Conference registration includes invitations to three social events where delegates can relax, recharge and enjoy their surroundings.

An array of talented speakers will be led by Geoff Bryan, our  MC. Geoff is a New Zealand television broadcaster, currently a sports presenter for TVNZ, and most well-known for presenting the Olympic and Commonwealth Games since 1988. The Hon John Banks, Minister for Small Business, will give a keynote address as well as attending conference sessions for the first morning.

Afternoon workshops provide delegates with an opportunity to drill down on some specific areas of interest.  Smaller groups made up of like-minded individuals, facilitated by an industry expert; provide a valuable insight into the world of franchising.

Speakers drawn from the franchising community have scored particularly well with past delegate audiences and will again feature prominently, including a live video link up with the Chairman of the Malaysian Franchise Association who will talk about his international franchise development as well as the way in which their government assists the franchise community.  The conference will end on a high note with an address from John Anderson, New Zealand businessman, author, celebrity speaker and founder of Contiki Holidays.

The natural beauty, collegial environment, and inspirational speakers will combine to ensure a conference that is vital dynamic and must do for those in Franchising and there is still time to register by contacting the Association on + 64 9 274 2901.
