Retail & Franchise

Retail and Franchise are at the heart of the Dutch economy

Retail and Franchise are at the heart of the Dutch economy both from an inbound and an outbound perspective. Recent developments have shown that the voice of the international Retail and Franchise community needs to be heard. IRF aims to bring all interested in international Retail & Franchise together. You, suppliers, franchisors, distributors, retail and property experts, politicians, tax experts, ICT companies, fashion chains etc. are hereby invited to the IRF 2018 event.

IRF a platform for Retail & Franchise

Companies active in international retail and franchise

We deal with many companies active in international retail and franchise. We have noticed that many of these are very experienced and knowledgeable. Especially during the discussions on new franchise legislation, we missed their input. They were simply not part of the process. It would be good to provide a platform in the shape of the IRF for the international retail and franchise community and do so in English as many CEO’s are from abroad. There is so much good coming from these companies such as jobs for young people and innovations that actually work. We have received very positive feedback from many angles on our initiative.
