Over 150 guests attended the British Institute of Facilities Management's (BIFM) inaugural 'Corporate Members Monthly Event', held at Channel 4, London on 31 October.
The event is considered by the institute as being central to supporting FM organisations. Gareth Tancred, CEO of BIFM, said: “With over 580 corporate members, there was a real need to host events specifically tailored to these organisations. Many members came to us requesting a professional platform to network, engage and share best practice and experience with fellow organisations. Feedback to date is that we not only met this need, but exceeded it through our first event. Thank you to everyone who attended, and who supported us in this new venture.”
The event was opened by Tancred, who gave an insight into future plans and aspirations for the institute, including its new mission, vision and values, and strategic plans for international growth and development. He also announced that BIFM is to partner with ITN to produce 'BIFM TV'.
