Enhance your knowledge in the FM Theatre


Facilities Show also lets you access thought leadership and insight from industry leaders, with a programme of CPD-accredited educational sessions to help you remain at the forefront of industry knowledge. This year’s agenda of seminars, presentations, case studies and panel discussions in the dedicated FM theatre will cover the most important topics and developments.

Some of the highlights include: 

The roadmap to net zero

A panel will discuss the steps they have taken within their organisations to become sustainable and eventually, net zero, in the future. From harnessing staff collaboration for behaviour change, sustainable travel, waste and resources management and sustainability strategy and reporting. How will your business adapt to new UK and EU legislation with ambitious net-zero targets?

Sustainability in FM and achieving Environmental, Social and Governance

ESG is a hot topic for anyone working within the built environment. Environmental goals, such as achieving net zero remain a priority; but alongside this, the role of facilities management in helping to meet societal aims, from addressing modern slavery to supporting the supply chain, is also vital. There is also the need to achieve compliance, to ensure that FM is not just meeting its ESG obligations but has the processes in place to meet ESG regulations and reporting mandates. FMJ will bring together a panel of thought leaders in sustainability to discuss the opportunities for FMs to be front and centre of the integration of ESG into their organisations.

How is FM becoming more strategic and agile?

Workplaces need to work harder to work for everyone and need to consider sustainability, wellbeing, diversity, and inclusion. This session looks at the future of FM, and how the pandemic accelerated changes that were already underway. As a non-profit, Abri Group will share how they choose the levers to ensure impactful outputs that also focuses on value for money.

Smart Workplaces

As the hybrid working megatrend gathers pace, top business leaders recognise the importance of delivering a world-class workplace user experience. 

This session will explore how smart workplace technology helps you optimise both workplace design and daily facilities operations. 


Make up for lost time 


Huge changes to how we live and work have contributing to a shift in how the workplace is viewed and what people expect from it. Innovative technology is pushing the boundaries of what real estate can deliver for organisations. The role of FM has grown considerably, and FMs now have a hand in nearly every aspect of a business.

After years apart, it’s time to debrief with your colleagues and peers and strategize for the future. Reconnect, learn and share, in-person and all in one place, through networking opportunities from breakfasts and drink receptions to closed-door roundtable discussions.

As the sun goes down, there’ll also be plenty of drinks and after parties to celebrate the reunion we’ve all been waiting for. 


Discover new technologies at Intelligent Building Europe


Intelligent Building Europe – in partnership with Master Systems Integrator Vanti – will showcase the latest ideas in the emerging smart building sector, with a full-sized replica of a smart office showing opportunities to integrate cutting-edge technology. Immerse yourself the unique, fully equipped smart building environment and see how the most innovative and interactive technology can bring together facilities management, security, fire safety and wellbeing in one place.


Be inspired by keynote speakers 


This year, you can hear from documentary-maker, producer and writer Louis Theroux and Mandy Hickson, one of the first female pilots to serve on the front-line in a Tornado. Louis Theroux’s unique style of investigation has covered everything from post-partum mental illness in the UK to American psychiatric treatment centres, dementia care to alcohol addiction.

He’s has trained with American wrestlers, mixed with gang members, and interviewed those on the fringe of society. He has also spent time with self-help gurus, out of work actors, and rappers. Rejecting the more confrontational style of other documentarians in favour of an informal, curious, unassuming approach, his work is consistently revealing, informative and entertaining.

Louis will provide surprising and insightful stories from his vast-ranging experience and give attendees the opportunity to pose some questions of their own.

Joining Louis is Mandy Hickson, one of the first female pilots to serve in a front-line Tornado GR4 squadron, playing an active role in the conflict in Iraq. Her session will provide a vivid insight into the leadership, teamwork and communication required to define and then realise specific goals in high-pressure situations. She will also highlight the value of honest and open debriefing after any project or phase; something the Royal Air Force always do, but which businesses often overlook.
