Learn how to do more with less at the Facilities Management Forum…
In today’s age of uncertainty, with many economic challenges ahead, the need to reduce costs across all aspects of business is now more important than ever before. As the world continues to suffer the consequences of the sharp economic decline from the early 2000s and more recently the decision to leave the European Union; businesses need to look internally to keep control of operating costs.
Subsequently, the role of a facilities manager has become increasingly vital to an organisation’s success. Despite initial financial constraints; businesses must continue to invest considerable amounts of time, energy and capital to not only ensure their facilities are properly maintained but also that rising energy costs, life cycle sustainability, aging assets are all kept under control to withstand the challenges that the unpredictable future presents.
It is therefore no surprise that economic and budgetary concerns are the number one issue identified by facilities professionals. Facilities Managers are increasingly required to ‘do more with less’. From the pressure to be more energy efficient to the need to be prepared for emergencies and disasters; the key solution to the challenges facing the industry is employing technological solutions with reliable and innovative service providers. The ability to leverage new technologies is critical to the success of facilities management. Though the cost of these solutions can be intimidating at first glance, these solutions tend to be cost-effective in the long-run.
Here’s where the Facilities Management Forum comes in. Designed to draw on the combined skills, knowledge and expertise of the industry; the Facilities Management Forum helps business discover the latest trends, innovations and technologies available in the industry. The event offers invaluable insight into a wide variety of topics within the industry; bringing together a hand-picked selection of its senior figures; all while providing unparalleled industry access to the latest products and services to help businesses.
Unlike other events in the industry, the Facilities Management Forum is designed to be a smaller, more intimate event, focusing entirely on quality of attendees rather than quantity. The event strives to maximise productivity with pre-arranged face-to-face meetings to bring like-minded delegates and product and service providers together. This year’s event sees the attendance of key decision makers from firms such as Butlins, Coach, SimplyHealth, UPM Kymenne, Volkswagen Group, and more.
As well as the networking opportunities, the event also offers up some fantastic insight into wider trends across the market. The events speaker line-up promises to do just that with industry influencers from Air Treatment, Chartered Association of Building Engineers, Chief Fire Officers Association and more.
So for Facilities Managers looking for a new and innovative way to see what’s new in the industry, learn how to cut costs and make profitable connections, the Facilities Management Forum is the ideal platform. As a representative of Solid Management and previous attendee has said: “Anyone thinking of attending the Facilities Management Forum should just do it.
