"One of our most important objectives is to look for master licensees for the Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and other countries in the region. We met interested candidates so far, and we hope to be able to finalize at least the preliminary contract in the next few weeks and months. We are happy with the candidates we met so far. We found some interesting profiles from different industries, some of them already have experience in the franchising industry - maybe not in the services industry – but with a good profile and willing to go ahead to the process to become a master licensee."

"After exhibiting at TGFM for 3 years, we realize that the event is not just for the UAE market but for the entire GCC and the surrounding markets. TGFM has been outstanding in helping us find qualified leads, and we are now in negotiation with multiple parties from 3 different regions to close a deal. We highly recommend TGFM to any brand that wants to expand into GCC."
"TGFM provides access to the type of sophisticated investors we’re looking for. The investors that I’ve met understand the market, and they have a great outlook on how to grow the brand within the region. There’s a great selection of brands and a lot of really intelligent people who understand what a good investment looks like."
"75% visitors signed new franchise contracts during/within 8 months after the event. I have been on the look for such kind of brands because it’s not available in Uganda where I came from. When the opportunity came to try the brand, I realized that this is something I can actually do the business with. Now we have signed and we are going to start with the 5 different countries and I’m sure it’s going to expand and will extend to the entire continent very soon."
