Posted by Stephanie Broad | April 12, 2016 | Events

Facilities Show 2016 will once again open its doors for three days this June to showcase the latest products, innovations and learnings from across all sectors of the Facilities industry. Taking place from 21-23 June at London’s ExCeL, Facilities Show 2016 will bring together over 11,000 Facilities Management professionals for its annual gathering. 

The show will again be held in association with the British Institute of Facilities Management, creating a flagship event supported by the industry that tackles the critical issues facing those working within FM. 

Facilities Show is part of UBM EMEA’s Protection & Management Series, the UK’s largest event dedicated to protecting and managing property, people and information. 

The series incorporates major events Facilities Show, IFSEC International, FIREX International, and Safety & Health Expo along with Service Management Expo and attracts more than 40,000 attendees annually over three days.

2016 is already shaping up to be an action packed show with a host of high profile companies already confirmed to participate. Leading industry names Mitie, Sodexo, Helistrat, Planon, Tradepoint, Stannah and Forbo Flooring, to name a few, have already committed to exhibiting at Facilities Show.

Also new this year are the three theatres running alongside the BIFM Career Zone, Facilities 2020 Strategy Summit, FM Operational Arena and FM in the Real World that will provide over 60 hours of educational content to visitors completely free. 

Headlining the content programme of more than 100 speakers will be keynote addresses from Colonel Tim Collins OBE, Kate Adie OBE and James Cracknell OBE, truly inspirational speakers who have shown grit and determination in the face of adversity. Further speakers will cover sector specific case studies, thought leadership, training and legislative updates, 

Commenting on the line up, Charlotte Wright, Senior Content Manager for Protection & Management, said: “A wealth of 18 month research with the security, fire, safety, facilities and service management communities has resulted in the most focused programme that the Protection & Management Series has ever seen. Stages this year will welcome a mix of inspirational stories from our headline speakers with practical and insightful sessions from top speakers and trainers. We can’t wait until June!”

Colonel Tim Collins OBE will speak on Tuesday 21st June from 11.30 – 12.30, Kate Adie OBE will speak on Wednesday 22nd June from 11.30 – 12.30 and James Cracknell OBE will speak on Thursday 23rd June at 11.30 – 12.30.
