What's on at Facilities Show 2020?

Facilities managers and commercial real estate managers have never faced more opportunities and challenges, as our workplaces continue to evolve. This is particularly so in terms of regulatory requirements, cultural shifts against the backdrop of a global climate movement, and the new Environment Bill. Is this a time for ideology or vision in your company’s approach to FM?

Discover how facilities management can respond with a seminar programme dedicated to the theme of sustainability, brought to you in conjunction with The Carbon Trust and IEMA. Whether you are an agenda-setter or novice in the field of sustainability, the show will connect you with leaders, peers and suppliers to promote a greener future for the sector.
