The British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) and the Facilities Show have signed a new partnership agreement. The agreement sees a continuation of an exclusive 15 year association, building and developing the facilities management exhibition, and seals an ongoing collaboration as the event moves into its next phase of growth at London ExCel.
Gareth Tancred, chief executive officer at BIFM, said: ''For us, this is the must attend show of the year. The mission of BIFM and the Facilities Show have always been closely aligned, to generate excellence across the facilities management profession. We have a shared passion for the industry, and the show acts as the main hub for FM professionals, specialist suppliers and senior executive visitors. We believe it bolsters our industry and by having it at London ExCel, we are rightly positioned at the heart of business and in an excellent location to attract international visitors.”
The Facilities Show, now in its 15th year, will be running from June 17-19. This is the first time the event will be held at its new home in the capital, and marks an exciting new chapter for the event as it continues its growth. It has become the world's largest FM show with over 400 exhibitors and in excess of 15,500 attendees. It hosts numerous education sessions, a key part of the collaboration between the two parties, which are heavily attended each year. For 2014, this will include the BIFM Networking Hub, panel debates, case study seminars and forums spread across the three days.
