The Facilities Event

The Facilities Event, the leading exhibition dedicated to the UK’s facilities and workplace industry, has announced it will be tackling FMs biggest challenges, when the event returns to the NEC, Birmingham on the 9-11 April 2019. 

In response to imminent technological, political and cultural changes facing British business in 2019, The Facilities Event has said it aims to tackle some of the most pressing technical issues head-on and create a forum where FMs can find answers to their workplace challenges. 

The brands exhibiting at this year’s event will be leading experts in their field, ready and on hand to provide 1-2-1 bespoke advice to attendees. FMs visiting the show will be able to touch and experience new technology and source the very latest equipment and services for their workplace. 

The 2019 show will pivot around The Facilities Hub, a central theatre hosting free CPD accredited training and education designed for FM professionals which will address what the organisers are calling the ‘Five pillars of FM’. Content will be delivered across five streams covering cleaning services, security, catering, property management and support & technology services. 

Sessions are designed to give attendees access to three days of educational content and practical information in these areas. The Facilities Hub programme will feature 18 sessions delivered by 30 of the most knowledgeable professionals in the UK’s FM industry today. 

New for 2019, The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) UK chapter has embarked on a partnership with The Facilities Event and in addition to exhibiting will also be running networking events during the show.
