Over 70% of international exhibitors have found a Master Franchisor and have already started expanding their network in Greece throughout Kem World Franchise Exhibition.

The increased exhibitor attendance in KEM 2009 will provide visitors with multiple concept options to choose from. The 11th KEM World Franchise Exhibition will be organized under the auspices of the Ministry of Development, the National Confederation of Hellenic Commerce, the Franchise Association of Greece, the World Franchise Council (WFC) and the European Franchise Federation (EFF).
