What’s on at Facilities Scotland this week...

10 September 2018

Facilities Scotland, the only b2b exhibition dedicated to Scotland’s FM and workplace industry, returns to the SEC, Glasgow on the 12th-13th September 2018. Ahead of the show, starting on Wednesday, here are just some of the not-to-be-missed highlights on offer for attendees:

BIFM Scotland discuss the future of the FM industry

Sandy McNaughton, BIFM Scotland chair, is joined by Mark Whittaker, business development manager at Integral UK and Andrew Dack, group sales director, PTSG, in the opening keynote session titled Can Scottish FM plot a new value-driven path for the sector? In this session, the panel will draw on their extensive industry experience to discuss what lessons can be learnt from the recent failures in the FM sector, and the necessary steps the industry must take to reinvigorate FM.

All change - From FM to workplace.

The recent vote to change the name of the BIFM, the 25-year-old membership body, to the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management highlights the growing movement of individuals and organisations within the FM profession who recognise the effective role that facilities managers can play in the design and management of the workplace. Chris Hood, director of consulting EMEA at Advanced Workplace Associates, discusses the growing significance of ‘workplace’ to the FM role and how practitioners should prepare for the changes ahead. 

Home to over 100 manufacturers and suppliers 

This year, Facilities Scotland joins Health & Safety Scotland and Fire Safety Scotland as part of the Scotland Works series of events. The three shows bring over 100 of the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers together, all under one roof giving FM’s the opportunity to touch and experience the latest technology and equipment in the market.

36 hours of CPD professional content

Facilities Scotland is the largest programme of free professional content for FMs in Scotland. Under the theme, ‘Building the Scottish FM powerhouse’, the 2018 seminar programme promises to showcase the very best of Scottish FM, panel debates on the latest trends shaping the FM market in the region and beyond and a series of talks that will help facilities managers enhance their CPD. It is just one of four streams of content available to visitors to Facilities Scotland who will also get access to Health & Safety Scotland and Fire Safety Scotland featuring professional technical and practical seminars with curated content from British Safety Council, 3M and Fire & Security Matters.
