About the Innovations in Facilities Management Conference

Functional, efficient and safe workplaces can be the crucial difference between success and failure in both the public and private sectors. In 2017, facilities managers face unprecedented challenges posed by disruptive technologies, skills shortages and squeezed budgets. From the advent of smart buildings to the impact of Brexit on the workforce, it is essential that facilities managers stay on top of recent developments and keep ahead of the competition. Those working in FM must also keep up to date with the latest safety regulations.

Join us for the The Innovations in Facilities Management Conference and Exhibition where leading experts will discuss the major changes that are shaping the future of the sector. See how new technology is revolutionising the workplace, ensure your workplace is compliant with the latest legislation and understand how facilities can be made more sustainable and energy efficient.
