What is World FM Day?

Get involved

Resources to showcase your celebrations


World FM Day is a Global FM initiative to celebrate the importance of the FM profession. It aims to raise the profile of FM around the globe, promoting facilities management’s ideals, not only within the profession and industry, but also among governments and the general business community.

World FM Day 2016 will takes place on 13 July 2016, with events taking place during 11-15 July.

The theme will be ‘Empowering people for a productive world’, and will look at how facilities management (FM) enables different business disciplines to collaborate to deliver high quality business performance.
