Facilities Matters : July 2019

Building an event for the UK’s FM professional

In April, an unprecedented number of facilities and workplace professionals attended The Facilities Event at the NEC in Birmingham to network and do business at the exhibition dedicated to the UK’s FM industry.

Nearly 12,000 professionals attended the three-day show, which was co-located with The Health & Safety Event, The Fire Safety Event and – brand new for 2019 – The Security Event. Together, these events created the ultimate business update for facilities professionals, giving visitors free access to over 350 manufacturers and suppliers and 120 hours of CPD-accredited content.

In other news, you may have noticed that this issue of Facilities Matters has changed to a flip-back, rather than a pull-out inside Cleaning Matters. This is due to much-valued feedback from our readers, who told us they prefer this format as the layout is easier to navigate.

If you have any comments or opinions about the magazine or suggestions for topics you’d like us to cover in future issues, please do get in touch.

We hope you enjoy reading it!
