With the theme ‘Igniting Recovery,’ the virtual conference is scheduled September 21 to 23, coming on the heels of the virtual expo September 8 to 11.
Franchise Asia Philippines 2021 hopes to inspire Filipinos to rise up to the challenges of the pandemic and pivot to where the opportunities lie.
“Without doubt the past two years have been difficult,” said Philippine Franchise Association (PFA) Chairman Richard Sanz. “But we should not let these difficulties weigh us down. Things may have changed but opportunities still abound.”
The virtual conference will feature curated sessions, area-focus tracks, and subject matter experts and is designed to help the delegates prepare for the future of franchising.
One of the most awaited sessions is the C-Suite Forum, which will feature some of the big names and thought leaders in the franchising sector and related industries. Among the topics that will be discussed are:
• Staying Competitive While Managing Cashflow

“If you want to start a business and become your own boss, then go ahead. Don’t let the pandemic stop you from realizing your dream because there are still many opportunities out there,” said PFA President Sherill Quintana.
She also said that franchising continues to be the best option to start a business especially during this time because the franchisor is always there to help.
