IFX Conference feedback from some of today's top franchises:

"As a meeting and event producer myself, I set a high bar for any professional gathering; I give Dan and his team an A+ for engagement and “take-aways”. I was also impressed by how Dan designed the program to be educational for a wide range of attendees – from those representing start-ups to established Fortune 500 companies, and from franchising newbies to industry veterans, including a past IFA President.  I look forward to continuing the journey with you all… "
