World Workplace Europe Meets Facility for Future in Amsterdam

Industry & Regulatory News, Events, Workspace Management, EMEA
The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) and its alliance partner Facility Management Netherlands (FMN) have announced that the Kromhouthal in Amsterdam will be the venue of Facility for Future and IFMA’s World Workplace Europe Conference and Expo, 20-22 March, 2019. IFMA and FMN are joining forces with the Facility for Future annual conference for a unique combination of these two events. FMN is the Dutch professional association for the facility sector while IFMA represents the global facility community.

 

IFMA, which has organized the well-attended World Workplace in America and Asia for years, brought this concept to Europe two years ago. Amsterdam in 2019 follows successful shows in Stockholm and Barcelona. At the same time, FMN hosted a successful Facility for Future in 2017 and is organizing this event in a new format.

 

Lara Paemen, director of IFMA Europe, praised the spirit of collaboration: “IFMA members from Europe and around the world get the opportunity to see interesting examples of professional facility management in a beautiful ambiance and setting.”

 

FMN chair Natalie Hofman: “The arrival of World Workplace Europe 2019 to Amsterdam is a unique opportunity to link the international context of our field to national relevance.”

 

During an information meeting earlier this summer, FMN and IFMA presented plans to a broader group of interested industry parties. The reactions were very positive and promising. The partners for Facility for Future — Sodexo, ISS, Hutten and BAM FM — responded positively to the intention to combine both events.

 

“We are currently further developing the program and the prospectus, so that market parties can register for a partner package for this special event by mid-September,” Hofman reports.

About World Workplace Europe
World Workplace is the original all-encompassing learning and networking event on facilities and how to manage them. There’s program value for FM professionals at every point of their careers and across all types of facilities. World Workplace Europe is the gold standard for discovering new ideas and technology from around the world impacting the European FM industry. After previous editions in Stockholm and Barcelona, we again welcome European and international participants to Amsterdam. In addition to two days of fascinating sessions, workshops and networking, we conclude the event with facility tours where attendees will see behind the scenes of some special projects in Amsterdam.

 

About Facility for Future
Facility for Future originated from a need within the facilities industry for a content-based inspiration event and is organized under the supervision of FMN. The first edition of Facility for Future took place in January 2017. With appealing national and international speakers from both inside and outside the field, Facility for Future is a must for all innovators and other parties involved in facilitating the workplace and the work environment of tomorrow.
