The British Institute of Facilities Management’s (BIFM) seventh Think FM conference which will be taking place on 8 June 2017 will explore the impacts of technology on the facilities management sector.
Titled ‘FM in a Connected World’ the conference is based around how technological advances are transforming the way the world works and how facilities and workplaces can be created, managed and developed to deliver results for business and society.
BIFM’s acting chief executive Linda Hausmanis said:
“With new technology rapidly changing the way people interact with each other and the world around them, technology and its application is arguably becoming the most important resource for those working in facilities management.
“Business requirements are changing and emerging trends, like the internet of things (IoT), building information modelling (BIM), big data, artificial intelligence and robotics, wearable devices and cloud computing, offer the opportunity to innovate and accelerate the value delivery FM can bring. But in order to do so, the sector must learn from the ongoing advances in technology and how to leverage it so that it can continue to develop and be a driving force for innovation and positive change as the world, and the workplace, continues to evolve.
“ThinkFM will look at how the influence of smarter, more flexible and responsive solutions is impacting on the FM function and the latest innovations helping to prepare the sector of the challenges of the future.”
The event will be held at the London Science Museum. Delegate bookings are now open.
