The Moscow Franchise Expo 2018 to be held in the ExpoCentre Fairgrounds on May 30 – June 1 will feature an Open House Day at the consolidated booth of Moscow’s economics universities. The Russian State Social University (RSSU), the Moscow University of Finance and Law (MFUA), the Financial University, the Graduate School of Corporate Management at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA), and the Moscow International University will present their programs in higher and further education.
“The Open House Day at the International Franchise Expo will let current and future entrepreneurs discover the opportunities universities offer today for professional or personal growth. And it will be a great help for those who are as yet unsure about the direction of their future development and for those who wish to change their profession,” said Natalya Pochinok, Rector of the RSSU.
The Moscow Franchise Expo 2018 and the World Franchise Forum do indeed offer an expansive program spanning a range of activities from master classes and thematic sessions for beginner entrepreneurs to the possibility of buying an established franchise on special terms. The event is supported by the Department of Science, Industrial Policy and Entrepreneurship of Moscow. Alexey Fursin, Head of the Department, noted that the organizers would be expecting not only experienced entrepreneurs, but also those who were just considering starting their own business. Utmost attention will be devoted to the young generation since they will shape the future economy of Russia.
“We should clearly show young people that opening your own business today is entirely possible and nothing to be afraid of,” Mr. Fursin said. “The World Forum and the Franchise Expo will show the practical aspect of the undertaking, and the Open House Day will help visitors choose where to study the theory.”
For the first time, Moscow will host the World Franchise Forum and the Moscow Franchise Expo 2018, the world’s largest sectoral event. 70 members and heads of associations from more than 30 countries, as well as Russia’s franchise leaders will address the event’s attendees.
