The Dutch National Franchise Expo

 Dutch version

Every year, the Dutch National Franchise Expo takes places in the first week of April. In 2020, the fair will take place on Thursday 24 and Friday 25 September. Visitors can get in touch with franchise formulas and specialists in the field of franchise. The fair will be held in 2020 at Hart van Holland in Nijkerk, which is in the centre of The Netherlands.

Every year the franchise expo has a wide range of exhibitors. These are mainly franchise formulas that are looking for franchisees, but also specialists in franchise. Exhibitors from previous years included Subway, Coffee FellowsBakker Bart, New York PizzaJamin, Natuurwinkel, Papa John’s, eismann, kippie, De PizzabakkersIntersport, Fortune Coffee, HuboKaldi koffie & thee, Kwalitaria, Mitra, ChipsAway, eismann, Optie1, Doppio espresso, FEBO, Kwalitaria, Johnny’s Burgers co., WOK&, Right at Home, Taco Mundo, 1. TubzEurope, De Beren, Specsavers, Bailine, Mail Boxes Etc. and Straetus incasso. Every year, suppliers/specialists also take part in the fair. Some suppliers/specialists in franchise: ABN AMRO, Ludwig & Van Dam advocaten, LXA The Law Firm, SuperGarant Zorg & Verzekeringen, Kampert Nauta and Capital Circle.


The franchise expo is divided into 4 themes. Each theme is introduced by a specialist who gives an introduction in a short time. The introduction is followed by a panel discussion with three franchisors. For example, the previous expo was divided into ‘Franchise in food’ and ‘Corporate finance’. On Friday, the themes were ‘Franchise in services’ and ‘Franchise and internet’.


In addition to the thematic approach, the exhibitors will also hold seminars during the franchise expo. Think for example of presentations by New York Pizza, Specsavers and Intersport. In this way, the visitor can easily obtain information about the franchise formulas, trends within franchise and they can obtain all the necessary information in one day.

Target group

The franchise expo is extremely suitable for people who are orientating themselves in the field of franchise, this is the most important target group of the fair. But also for existing franchisees who want to improve their business by means of knowledge transfer or perhaps want to look for multi-franchise requirements. The expo is also suitable for franchisees to visit. Small events are organised during the expo, especially for this target group.

In short: The Dutch Franchise Expo Onderneem ‘t! is the place to get information in a pleasant and accessible setting. Keep an eye on our newsletter, social media accounts like Facebook and Twitter and our agenda in the newsletter for more information about the new edition of the expo.
