Snap-on Hosts Franchisee Conference in Orlando, Fla.

The conference played host to more than 8,700 registered attendees, including representatives of more than 3,000 North American routes.

The 2016 Snap-on Franchisee Conference (SFC) highlighted the latest in product innovations, business seminars and programs to enhance the success of Snap-on Tools franchisees. The conference, held in Orlando, Fla., played host to more than 8,700 registered attendees, including representatives of more than 3,000 North American routes.

“Snap-on Tools’ annual SFC is our most extensive opportunity to demonstrate the depth of support for our franchisees and their success,” said Tom Kassouf, president of the Snap-on Tools Group. “More than 1,000 associates and suppliers were on hand, meeting with franchisees face-to-face to demonstrate new products, teach new methods and expose franchisees to the latest in technology to run their businesses. Our SFC goal is for every franchisee to refresh their knowledge of the many initiatives in support of the profitable growth of their franchise business; to experience the exceptional range of products available to their customers; and to share experiences with thousands of their fellow franchisees.”

The conference centered around a 144,000-square-foot Product Expo, displaying thousands of different products, including the latest innovations in hand tools, tool storage, power tools, diagnostics, and shop and tech. In addition to a booth focusing on productivity and profitability, franchisees could learn from five different business seminars, ranging from hands-on diagnostics to a panel of fellow franchisees sharing best practices. A scale-version LEGO Snap-on mobile store and a custom tool storage aquarium, by the creators of Animal Planet’s “Tanked,” were also on display.

As a part of the weekend’s events, Snap-on reserved the Universal Studios Florida theme park exclusively for franchisees and their guests during a special Snap-on Saturday Night. The festivities included drawings and giveaways, including a 1969 custom Camaro pool table in Snap-on red with working lights, real chrome, stainless steel bumpers, steel rims and a professional slate playing surface. Snap-on Saturday Night concluded with an exclusive concert by international country music stars Thompson Square.
