Facilities Scotland is making its debut at the Glasgow SEC on 3-4 May as part of Scotland Works. We take a look at what delegates can expect from the event.
FACILITIES MANAGEMENT is too often seen as a cost and liability to a business. Something to blame when things go wrong, and to cut when costs are under scrutiny. But forward-thinking businesses are using FM as a competitive differentiator enabling them to recruit and retain the best talent and clients, create engaging and productive working environments, drive the CSR agenda and add value to the bottom line. For these leading organisation, FM is an asset not a liability.
At Facilities Scotland, we’ll be celebrating all things FM and strive to capitalise on the opportunity of having Scotland’s largest gathering of like-minded colleagues coming together over the two days of the event.
Set to become an annual fixture, Facilities Scotland is part of Scotland Works, which incorporates the established Health & Safety Scotland, will also consist of five additional events - Fire Safety Scotland, Safer Logistics Scotland, Cleaning Scotland and Maintenance Scotland.
The events are designed to primarily support professionals working in Scotland’s industrial, commercial and public sectors to run safe and efficient businesses and organisations, but offer insight to any size of business.
The coming together of these events, is a key diary date for facilities professionals, who will be joining senior managers, decision makers and purchase influencers from across Scotland’s industrial, commercial and public sectors. Representatives from many of Scotland’s largest and most successful companies have already registered to attend the event.
The Facilities Conference Theatre will be tackling some of the hottest issues facing the Scottish FM industry today. In a special panel debate on day one (May 3), Stan Mitchell, managing director for Key FM, will be leading a discussion on What will Brexit mean for Scottish FMs at this politically challenging time.
Sessions will also provide exclusive access to training from the leading education suppliers plus insight into important FM case studies.
Opening day two (May 4), BIFM Scotland’s Preston Gan will be sharing his experiences on transforming culture and behaviours in an environment as established as the NHS.
Alongside the dedicated Facilities Conference Theatre, the other theatres in the fire and health and safety events will cover a range of content, which will be beneficial to the professional development of any level of FM professional.
