The global meeting place for FM professionals

22 May 2017

Be part of Facilities Show, the global FM event, when professionals gather this June in London.

The largest event in the FM calendar will commence from 20 - 22 June. FM professionals will descend on ExCeL London to source the latest innovative solutions to address project requirements and services at the cutting edge of FM innovation, all at the global meeting place for the FM professional network. 

The show will again be held in association with the British Institute of Facilities Management and this year partnered with commercial property and real estate services adviser CBRE, creating a flagship event supported by the industry that tackles the critical issues facing those working within FM.

With over 50 complimentary seminar and workshop sessions and more than 300 forward-thinking exhibitors, Facilities Show 2017 is set to be another show stopper. 

Unearth innovation in the Future Trends Zone

This area of the show floor will be the perfect place for you to get hands on experience with the latest advances across facilities management. You’ll find products and solutions that focus on the future of FM and witness demonstrations that give examples of their implementation. With a mix of both exhibiting suppliers and non-exhibiting vendors, visitors will benefit from real innovation.

Pre-book meetings with suppliers through the Meetings Service
Visitors will again be able to pre-book meetings with the suppliers that cater to their project needs ahead of arriving at Facilities Show. Products on display will cover maintenance, M&E, waste management, cleaning, energy management, TFMs, CAFM, catering and more, providing tangible ROI before visitors have even entered the venue.

Expand your FM network at the Networking Hub 
New to 2017, the Facilities Networking Hub and Games Arcade will be two areas of the show floor not to be missed. Providing all FMs with the opportunity to grow the professional community among like-minded peers over a drink while discussing current projects or during a game of pool. Networking sessions will be hosted by industry groups like FM North and The Hill Club on top FM and property trends for 2017 and beyond.

Progress your career and be open to the job market
Whether visiting key associations like BIFM, CIBSE and RICS or stopping by the Total FM Zone, visitors can meet with the HR departments of international TFMs and gain insight into courses, accreditation and more. With a focus on attracting the best talent in the market and developing facilities managers at every level, visitors will benefit greatly from the BIFM Careers Zone and the Total FM Zone.

Develop specialisms in security, safety, fire field service and corporate wear
Facilities Show badge holders will be able to further develop their specialisms and source products in security, fire, safety, field service and corporate wear with access to IFSEC International, Safety & Health Expo, FIREX International, Field Service Management Expo and the Professional Clothing Show, taking place in adjoining halls. Visitors can identify new suppliers for perimeter security, access control CPD accreditations, cctv, site evacuation and more or attend a host of education sessions discussing core issues including safety legislation, fire door installations and field service solutions.

Enhance your FM knowledge in the Facilities Show Seminar Theatre

The Facilities Show Seminar Theatre and the Keynote Theatre will examine all the key issues in facilities management. The tailored programme delivers insights from industry experts as well as real case studies and developments from Senior FMs.

Charlotte Wright, senior content manager for Protection & Management, said: “A wealth of years of research with the FM community has resulted in the most focused programme that Facilities Show has had yet. Stages this year will welcome a mix of truly inspirational stories from our headline speakers with practical and insightful sessions from industry trailblazers and trainers.”

Inspirational keynotes

Headlining the programme of more than 50+ speakers, this year’s inspirational speakers will be focusing on the theme of strength, resilience and defying the odds. Each speaker will deliver a session on the obstacles they faced, solutions they found and how the results allowed them to march on.

Double Olympic gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes will speak on Tuesday 20th June from 11.30 – 12.30, rock star Professor Brian Cox OBE will speak on Wednesday 21st June from 11.30 – 12.30 and Falklands War veteran Simon Weston CBE will speak on Thursday 22nd June at 11.30 – 12.30.
