Taking place at ExCeL London from 18-20 June, Facilities Show is the leading global hub for facilities and field service management professionals

Posted by Jo Golding | April 16, 2019 | Events

As the world’s largest dedicated facilities management event, in association with IWFM, Facilities Show unites FM professionals from all sectors with suppliers, advisers and specialists for unrivalled business opportunities.

While helping facilities managers source cost-effective solutions across workplace technology, cleaning, health and wellbeing, waste management and space planning, it also seeks to facilitate career development, networking, and education.

New technologies such as green energy management and smart buildings have created a wealth of opportunities for facilities managers. Facilities Show helps visitors engage with the forefront of this constantly shifting sector by granting them access to world-class learning and education through a full programme of thought leadership, seminars, keynote speeches and panel discussions.

CPD-accredited seminars

Hosted in a selection of dedicated theatres and feature areas such as the Facilities Management Theatre, this extensive agenda of CPD-accredited panels and sessions covers topics as varied as flexible working, integrated workplace technology, sustainability, diversity and more, as well as a time-critical subjects such as the impact of Brexit on the facilities management profession.

Inspirational speakers – hear from Jonny Wilkinson, Steph McGovern and Eddie the Eagle

Facilities Show also wants to inspire its visitors to think about workplace issues in new ways. That’s why the Keynote Theatre will play host to three inspirational speakers: journalist and presenter Steph McGovern, Winter Olympic underdog Eddie the Eagle and England rugby legend Jonny Wilkinson.

It’s this commitment to education, thought leadership and providing the opportunity to examine key developments and innovative ideas shaping the facilities management profession that sets Facilities Show apart.
