The International Franchise Association is one of the largest annual franchising conventions in the United States. This year, the convention greeted more than 3,500 attendees, an encouraging turnout coming out of the pandemic. For Scorpion, this is an annual opportunity to participate with more than one hundred franchise clients, and get a pulse on their evolving digital solutions needs.
“The franchise family definitely missed each other over these past two years. It was so nice to be in person with our clients and prospects, ” said Jordan Wilson, Scorpion’s Senior Vice President of Franchise Sales. “Scorpion is a proud sponsor of IFA and thankful for an event that brings us all together, provides franchising wisdom across all industries, and shows ways we can be united together to fight for franchising.”
Scorpion’s attendance and participation at events like IFA provide an opportunity to connect with customers, hear their feedback, and create new solutions to help both franchisors and their franchisees achieve their growth goals. Scorpion anticipates 2022 to be a year of important new developments in our franchise offerings, so networking with others at events like IFA enhances our ability to offer best-in-class service to our clients.
