WHERE: Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
AND YOU CAN QUOTE ME: We met some potential buyers during Hong Kong International Franchising Show 2018, including one dessert brand. We signed a cooperation agreement with them after the show and became their franchise agent for seeking master franchisees in ASEAN countries.
