To go from feeling alone in the world of franchising for 13 years, to suddenly being immersed in the presence of hundreds of industry experts practically overnight, was the most amazing business experience of my life. I cannot thank the organizers and participants enough for making me feel so welcome and amongst friends. Truly a life-altering experience, and one which I hope to repeat annually!
Deck Rescue Franchising
I recommend this event for anyone in the industry, emerging or not. Not only is the educational content valuable and the panelists top notch, but the general atmosphere is electric. There is a literal buzz everywhere you go - people connecting and re-connecting. I love that this event doesn't take itself too seriously - able to have fun and work at the same time. True work-life balance!

I’ve been in franchising over 10 years and learn something new or take away a new piece of information at every event.
Springboard is a great event for emerging and established brands alike. For emerging brands or those new to franchising, it is a great opportunity to meet others that are in the same stage of growth as you and form those relationships early on. Additionally, you get to meet those more established in franchising who are more than happy to share anything you need. For franchise vets, it is an opportunity to give back and repay the favor that we all got at some point in our franchise career by helping the newcomers. In those conversations, you always learn new things as well. It is also a good time to connect with other established zors/zees/suppliers to share current challenges and help each other.
Springboard is always terrific! Which is why I always attend. I’ve been in franchising for 35 years…and always come away with tons of tangible takeaways and great news contacts. I also get to connect with old friends. This format at this Springboard was the best yet. Less monologue and more dialogue than ever before. I’m happy to speak, but I learn something new when I listen…and get to interact with others.
BrandONE Franchise Development
Springboard is the perfect conference for every emerging franchisor! Small enough to meet and start friendships with peers at a similar stage of development, and large enough to capture vision from brands who are miles ahead. This conference is exactly what we were looking for to grow our small brand to the next level!

We highly recommend Springboard to our clients. Why go at it alone when you can get advice and answers from experienced franchise pros? Springboard can help get your franchise into the winner's circle.

What an inspirational, idea-packed and investment-worthy event for anyone involved with emerging (and re-emerging) franchisors. So much collaborative energy, sharing and camaraderie made this the BEST SPRINGBOARD EVER!
Assisting Hands Home Care
This event brings together some of the best minds in the franchise category with a willingness to share their triumphs and tragedies in their careers. Often, it's easy to fall into a trap as an emerging brand. The sharing of "here is what I learned when I was an emerging brand" can mean the difference between failure and success.
Topper's Craft Creamery
This event is a must for all emerging and re-emerging brands. Come learn from those that have been there and done it before so you fully understand the franchise journey.
Always a great event and I believe it is extremely valuable for an emerging franchise. The best way for an emerging franchisor to really get valuable info is through networking with other franchisors who have been around a while.
I don't know why I put off going for so long. Loved the conference and learned a lot!
Hard Exercise Works (HEW®)
I would recommend this event to anyone in franchising. If you're just starting out, there is a LOT of great content on a wide variety of topics. If you've been in franchising for a while, this event is great for networking and learning about changes in franchising.
The Springboard Event in Philadelphia is hands-down the best resource in franchising. Whether you're a franchisee, a franchisor, an emerging brand, or one that's been around for 50 years, you'll learn something new at every turn.
