Putting facilities management in the frame
The British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) Ireland Conference, supported by ARAMARK and H&J Martin Facilities Management is set to take place in Belfast’s Waterfront on 16th November 2012 and will demonstrate the vital role that facilities management plays in the performance of today’s successful organisations.
The conference will feature an eclectic mix of facilities management (FM) and related speakers and exhibitors from throughout Ireland and the UK and will provide a platform for public and private sector professionals with a business interest in FM to share ideas, enhance their knowledge and skills base and network with others in this rapidly growing sector.
Delegates can look forward to topics including reflections on Health and Safety incorporating case-studies during construction and launch of the Titanic and 100 years on; the benefits of energy efficiency at home and in the workplace; business as usual during the major refurbishment of the National Gallery of Ireland; challenges of the new Total FM contract at Channel 4 and a very interesting expose on how to energise your team.
Speaking at the launch Stephen Welch, Chairman, BIFM Ireland Region said, “As one of the fastest growing professions in the UK and Ireland, facilities management (FM) plays a vital role in the success of organisations by contributing to the delivery of strategic and operational objectives and providing a safe and efficient working environment. Our conference aims to raise the profile of FM as a strategic business discipline and part of this we are delighted to unveil an exceptional and diverse line-up of speakers. We look forward to welcoming professionals from throughout the UK and Ireland who want to learn how to use facilities management to improve the effectiveness of their organisation.”
