    If you're thinking of starting a business or want to expand one fast, why not buy one?

    Attend our seminars and you’ll learn everything you need to know about buying a business – including how to find your dream business and what you can do to make sure your deal goes through.

    You’ll also hear from franchising experts on why buying a franchise can prove to be a great alternative to buying a business.

    We’ll have industry experts with more buying and selling experience than you can shake a stick at on hand to help you demystify the entire process.

    All in one place, under one roof – everything you need to know about getting started or getting out.
