The World’s Largest Facilities Management Event: covering Building Management to Workplace Technology and Workplace Wellbeing to Smart Buildings takes place from 18-20 June 2019 at ExCeL London UK. During the show visitors will have the opportunity to meet around 282 facilities management suppliers whose areas of interest include, workplace technology, cleaning, health and wellbeing, waste management, energy management, office management, washroom, space planning and more.
SEMINARS AND EVENTS
The facilities show this year features three separate venues where delegates can enjoy talks on a variety of topics relevant to the FM remit. Just some of the topics covered at the Facilities Management Theatre will include office moves & refurbs, smart buildings, flexible working, threats to property portfolios, what Brexit means for FM and leadership. The Workplace Technology Theatre will concentrate on topics such as IoT decision to assist FM’s considering implementing technology into their assets. Finally, the Workplace Wellbeing Theatre will cover mental health, wellbeing strategies and case studies.
Between 11-11.45am on Wednesday, FMJ will hold a debate. A report, Solving the UK’s productivity puzzle in the digital age, published by the McKinsey Global Institute last year argues that the UK’s “uneven digitisation” is one of the reasons for our continuing productivity gap. It’s been argued that the FM sector could be playing a much stronger role in helping to boost productivity within businesses. How can technologies such as CAFM, sensors and other forms of prop tech be deployed to improve performance for clients and FM services providers? Speakers include; Compton Darlington, Business Development Director, FSI. Simon Francis, Principal Lead, Estates and Master-planning, Zoological Society of London. Alejandro Navarro, Director of Products & Analytics – Connected Workspace, Mitie. And Paul Wilkinson, Technical/FM writer.
BUILD RECRUITMENT – STAND FM5084
Coleen Cloherty Managing Director of specialist recruiter Build Recruitment says: “The Facilities Show is the first event of the year that we look for at Build Recruitment and one we spend a considerable amount of time planning. At each show we ensure you have access to all our current vacancies, an opportunity to register with a specialist recruiter and free of charge salary reviews & benchmarking exercises. There will be an opportunity for any potential clients to register with us their current vacancies and to agree an action plan on any requirements.
“This year marks my 20th year in the FM sector and recruitment. I have attended every show where time allows. I enjoy meeting with people who we are currently working with, have worked with in the past and those met for the first time at the show, as often it is a time where we can meet with people on a less formal and more relaxed basis. I also really enjoy the ability to walk around the venue and catch up with industry friends and colleagues alike.
“We attend as many seminars and events as we can and lend our support to others in the sector. This year I am involved in a panel covering Company Culture, recognition and getting a seat on the board. This is on the 20th June between 11.55 and 12.40 in the Facilities Management Theatre. Jacob Grainger Principal Consultant at Build Recruitment is also talking on a panel on the same day. He will be covering Skills and Talent in FM also in the Facilities Management Theatre between 11.00 & 11.45. Please come along to lend your support and contribute.
“The main benefits of attending the Facilities Show is to learn, exchanges views, network and participate. This year will be the last one in June. The move to May has been mooted by a number of people for a while now. It will be interesting to see how this develops in 2020 and beyond next year.”
CAFM EXPLORER – STAND FM5215
“With over 400 clients across the UK alone, the Facilities Show offers CAFM Explorer, the opportunity to see many existing customers who come along to review the latest updates to our software, as well as meet many of you who have a real interest in using trusted technology to improve your facilities operations,” says Claire Visser, CAFM Director.
“This year, we’ll be showcasing our latest system updates and features – not least the enhanced web-based client portal which offers users an industry-leading CAFM experience. We’ll also be demonstrating how our mobile solution supports efficiency, meets maintenance standards and manages risk on our giant, interactive mobile screen, providing insight into how your users and engineers can benefit from a truly CAFM-anywhere experience. Our extensive range of insightful reports and live dashboards – all included as standard with the product – will also be available for those looking for a comprehensive, compliant and configurable system which provides the highest level of functionality rather than cosmetic changes, like some system alternatives.
“We know that Facilities Show attendees are keen to gather knowledge and insight into how their jobs can be made easier and more efficient, especially at a time when cost and time savings are essential. We’ll be unveiling our latest customer case studies across the leisure, retail and service provider sectors, illustrating how easy it is to get started with CAFM Explorer regardless of your size, sector or scope. We’ll also be on hand at Stand FM5215 to answer any questions you might have – we look forward to seeing you there!”
