Energy & Empowerment: The 2024 FASTSIGNS International Convention


You might be forgiven for thinking a certain famous theme park has the monopoly on magic in Orlando, Florida! This month, some of the FASTSIGNS UK network brought a little something special to the city, when they attended the annual FASTSIGNS International convention.

This hugely important event is where our Head Office team and global franchisees gather under one roof. During the four-day event, attendees share their experiences from the last year, hear about exciting developments for the future and tap into the collective expertise and experience of their global partners. Every year has a special theme, with 2024’s urging attendees to “Power your Possibilities”, and was packed full of opportunities to network, learn, and collaborate. Attendees enjoyed a whole range of events, including motivational speakers and the always vibrant Vendor’ Show where our suppliers showcase innovative products used in signage.

It’s also a great chance for FASTSIGNS to give something back to the community, as they always find a way to incorporate a charitable activity within the four days. This year, FASTSIGNS teamed up with one of their key partners, Text Request (a mobile payment app), to support a shared cause: Providing food to underprivileged families in America. Through various donations, FASTSIGNS staff and franchisees package an impressive 15,000 meals in collaboration with Feed Children Everywhere.

Sparing a few minutes from the busy schedule, Melanie Martinez from FASTSIGNS Crawley took to social media to share her enthusiasm about the event: “What an amazing time I am having at the FASTSIGNS International Convention 2024 in Orlando! The energy is contagious and I am grateful for the chance to be a part of such a dynamic and forward-thinking community. The knowledge gained, connections made, and memories created will undoubtedly have a lasting impact on our business as well as me personally. A huge thank you to all the team at FASTSIGNS® International for putting on another fantastic convention.”

Of course, it wasn’t all work and no play! There was a real atmosphere of celebration at the event, particularly among the UK team who managed to scoop several big wins at the annual franchisee awards ceremony. Mark Phelps, from FASTSIGNS Kingston, clinched an impressive four awards, including the coveted Highest Centre Volume accolade.

Other UK franchisees, such as FASTSIGNS St Albans, FASTSIGNS Manchester, and FASTSIGNS Hammersmith, were also honoured. We couldn’t be prouder of everything the UK network has achieved. Even though we consider ourselves a global family, here at FASTSIGNS, we can’t help being overjoyed that the UK teams are thriving in terms of their success and achievements!

Aside from celebrating success, the International Convention is so important to everyone at FASTSIGNS in terms of the support and inspiration it offers. It’s a huge part of how our partners enjoy the best of both worlds when it comes to owning a franchise: being independent and in control of their own business but still being part of something so much bigger. Perhaps you see yourself there one day lifting a big award? Anything can happen when you “Power your Possibilities” with FASTSIGNS!
