BIFM London conference reveals programme

Tickets are now available for the BIFM London annual conference, which takes place on 5 March at the Institution of Engineering and Technology in Savoy Place, London.

Mike Gillespie from Advent IM will kick off the technology and innovation-themed event with a presentation looking at how the FM is now at the forefront of the fight against cyber-crime thanks to hackers increasingly targeting organisations through their BMS and other FM-related technologies. He will explain the risks and how to counteract them.

The Internet of Things (IOT) is fast becoming a reality but what does all the terminology mean and how does it benefit FM? All will be explained by Mark Davenport, CEO of Smart Buildings. Meanwhile Colin Mooney, Head of Health, Safety and Facilities at The Crown Estate will talk about the innovative approach the organisation took when it moved to its new home at St James Market, together with a look at the technology which supports the facility.

Other speakers include Lucy Jeynes from Larch Consulting asking what cost do you put on innovation in your FM service delivery; and Mark Catchlove from Herman Miller on his research looking at creating an environment for innovation. Tech guru Greg Williams, Editor-in-Chief of WIRED Magazine, will close the day by talking about the future of technology and its impact on the built environment.

Tickets cost just £75+VAT for members, £105+VAT for non-members and £62.50+VAT for students.
