Facilities Show announces date change for 2024

Facilities Show has announced that as of 2024, the global FM event will move to the end of the year.

The 4 co-located events; Facilities Show, FIREX, IFSEC and Safety & Health Expo will next take place on 2-4 December, 2024 at ExCeL London.

Announcing the new dateline, Chris Edwards, Group Director, Informa Markets stated: “We’re extremely excited about the opportunities the December 2024 dates will unlock with co-located industry events, such as the Security & Fire Awards in Park Lane now just 30 minutes away on the new Elizabeth line.

“But also having consulted with key stakeholders in the industry for several months, it was becoming increasingly clear that the new dates would allow our customers more space to do business in what was otherwise becoming an increasingly congested period of the year.

“These new dates will now offer increased flexibility while also allowing us to offer more value to those attending in the form of content on the show floor and post-show networking.”

In addition, a content partnership with market research consultancy, Omdia, has been confirmed for 2024 which will bring high level content to the show floor touching on Smart Infrastructure.

Mark Watson, Research VP at Omdia commented: “The Smart Infrastructure analyst team of Omdia is excited to partner with the events for 2024, bringing together leading-edge business intelligence and thought leadership with internationally recognised event brands.

“Connecting the physical security and building tech supply chain around future-looking and industry-leading trends will drive higher value for all in the community.”

Webinar: How to create an ethical supply chain in FM

Are you confident that your contractors and suppliers meet ethical labour standards and human rights obligations?

For many FM services, managing multiple third parties in the supply chain can be a complex challenge. And, in a sector that relies heavily on migrant workers and 65 per cent of FM services facing difficulties in sourcing workers (Q4 2022 RICS survey), exposure to exploitation and modern slavery is a very real risk. With the UK one of the biggest destinations in Europe for trafficking of workers, you need full visibility of the people you work with, so you can minimise your risks and identify which part of your supply chain is most vulnerable.

FMJ, in partnership with Alcumus, is pleased to bring together a panel of experts to discuss how to create an ethical supply chain in FM.

Taking place at 11am on Wednesday 21st of June, the webinar will discuss:

  • The regulations to be aware of that are aimed at preventing human right abuses.
  • How to gain greater visibility of modern slavery compliance in the supply chain by having a robust verification process in place.
  • Steps to creating a compliant, ethical supply chain.
