Facilities Show 2017 provided visitors with an incredible complementary seminar and workshop programme - it focused on ‘real world’ talks delivered by FMs, as well as practical and strategic presentations by a few hand-picked industry experts.

Two large seminar theatres featured on the exhibition floor, all with different content on each day of the show. Plus, back by popular demand was the BIFM Careers Zone, which was available for those looking for CPD training, management skills or career opportunities

The Protection & Management Series Inspirational Speakers also returned for 2017.
