IFA’s 2021 Annual Convention ran from February 16-18 & February 23-25. For the very first time in its history, the convention was presented in a virtual format. This allowed for a more global audience to participate and benefit from the value of it.
IFA’s Annual Convention is franchising’s biggest event for business development and personal growth.
This year, Rogelio Martinez – Fast Cloud’s CEO – participated as moderator for the session titled “Contact Tracing While Taking Care of Business”. Martinez is a long-time member of the International Franchise Association (IFA) and currently sits at its International Leadership Committee Board. Martinez is a firm believer of the benefits and opportunities that franchising brings to entrepreneurs and their communities in the US and around the world.
The IFA is the world’s oldest and largest organization representing franchising worldwide. For over fifty five years, the IFA has worked to educate Franchisors and Franchisees on beneficial methods and business practices to improve franchising.
Some of these year’s speakers included: Seth Godin, Author; Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL); Governor Larry Hogan (R-MD); David Pepper, Chief Development Officer, Choice Hotels International; Lieutenant General (ret) Nadja West, 44th Army Surgeon General and other business and community leaders.
