The Facilities Show, in association with BIFM, will take place on 19-21 June 2018 at ExCeL London for another opportunity to inspire excellence in Facility Management.
Protecting and managing your assets has never been as important as it has been in recent days, and is a vital part of a successful business, economy and country. Facilities Show has been curated to help facility managers advance whilst staying compliant as the industry progresses.
As well as exhibiting at the event, BIFM will be offering the opportunity for delegates to take advantage of our Careers Surgery, Academy tasters and seminars on specialist topics.

We will be offering a specially developed half day on ‘How to become a smarter client’. This session will provide you with real case studies of contracts which have gone wrong, identifying the root causes and how you can avoid similar issues. It will also analyse your options on contract types and most importantly will offer real insights on the best way to manage contracts and how to select the best suppliers.
