Facilities Show will provide the first major opportunity in over two years for the entire facilities management supply chain to meet face to face at the world’s most important facilities management event in a safe and secure way.
The event will run in line with the industry recognised and Government approved Informa AllSecure standard designed to ensure the safety of all attendees. Informa AllSecure was piloted in September 2020 and approved by the UK Government on 19 November 2020 as a model for running large events safely. It involves several health and safety measures, including deep cleaning, social distancing onsite, staggered arrival times and PPE, including face masks.
“Both events present unmissable opportunities for the FM community to reconnect and explore the innovative approaches to facilities management solutions that have been born out of a challenging year,” said Chris Edwards, Group Director at Informa Markets.
“Seeking to drive transformation within facilities management, they will bring the entire facilities management supply chain together, online and in-person, to share expertise and explore solutions for making facilities management more sustainable.”
