Innovation and inspiration will be core themes of this year’s Facilities Show, taking place at ExCel London from 16 -18 June 2015.
Delivering unparalleled access to knowledge, innovation and solutions from across the facilities management (FM) sector, the event is the highlight of the year for FM professionals.
This year, in partnership with FM publication Facilities Management Journal (FMJ), Facilities Show will include an innovation trail that will run across the event, highlighting all the latest products and services that have come to market.
Innovation will not stop there. The Innovation Awards, also in association with FMJ, will highlight the best of the best from the innovation trail at the show, rewarding those products or services that the judges feel truly stand out from the crowd.
Facilities Show recently announced two big names to its Inspirational Speaker Sessions, Baroness Karren Brady CBE and Sir Ranulph Fiennes Bt OBE will take to the keynote stage on the Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.
Baroness Brady is known as the ‘first lady of football’, having become MD of Birmingham City at the age of just 23 and is also well-known to millions of TV viewers for her role alongside Lord an Sugar in The Apprentice. Brady will share anecdotes from her own meteoric rise within the business world, offering plenty of insights and advice for women in business.
Sir Ranulph was described by The Guinness Book of Records in 1984 as “the world’s greatest living explorer”, his session will touch on the importance of agility and how the ability to perform under extreme pressure determines success.
Fergus Bird, Group Event Manager, UBM Live, said: “Innovation was a key theme in all of our research and feedback after the 2014 event so it is with great pleasure that we announce our plans for the Facilities Show 2015, providing leadership and inspiration for this diverse and forward-thinking sector.
Another element we are really excited about this year is the engagement we have from the Total Facilities Management companies, once again Mitie will be show partners but this year we have already confirmed that CBRE, Vinci Facilities, Bouygues, PHS and Bilfinger will all have significant presence at Facilities Show, highlighting the significance of the show across the entire FM industry. ”
Held in association with British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) along with show partners Mitie and partners The Building Futures Group, The Chartered Institute of Building Service Engineers (CIBSE), FMJ and International Workplace, amongst others, Facilities Show 2015 will provide three days tailored to the complex and ever changing needs of facility managers with a comprehensive programme created in consultation with the industry.
