First Annual Authority Brands Convention Recap

This past week, Authority Brands held its first annual Authority Brands Convention! The 3-day long convention was held in sunny Orlando, Florida. The Authority Brands team has been planning the convention for several months and brought together more than 1,000 franchise owners across 12 brands for a first-of-its-kind event. ​

​Authority Brands kicked off its convention with the First Jack Pruitt Golf Classic on Thursday! This was held at the Shingle Creek Golf Club. The golf event was a ball scramble filled with fun contests, networking, and explosive surprises!​

Authority Brands was able to raise over $8,000 for charity, and that will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club of America. The winners from the golf tournament were Jason Semelsberger, Mike Gregory, and Michael Blackburn. Congratulations to the winners!

Our keynote speaker was Walter Bond, a larger-than-life personality with priceless guidance on adopting a shark mindset to take your business to a new level. We also had a special guest speaker, Matthew Haller, President and CEO of the International Franchise Association, who discussed the future of franchising. The convention offered many excellent speakers and workshops for participants to listen to, learn from, and network with one another.

With its first convention, Authority Brands hosted a vendor showcase that featured more than 150 preferred vendors and Authority Brands resources!

BuyMax organized the showcase and brought out many amazing vendors to showcase their offerings to franchise owners. We want to give a huge shoutout and thank you to those that were able to exhibit with us at the convention. We hope you had a wonderful time and wish to have you join us again in the future.
