Education sessions and Product Zones are the most important reason to attend NFMT Remix in Las Vegas, November 2-3. For Pro and Elite attendees, there are 60-minute sessions focused on foundational principals of Facilities Management. The key trends of technology, safety and sustainability tend to be cross-functional and have a major impact on overall facilities strategies. These sessions are geared as more introductory sessions. Think Tanks, for Elite attendees, are 60-minute informal discussions focused around either a specific building type or trend. This will allow you to network with your peers in a small group environment. Attendees can pull up a chair and ask your questions to like-minded facilities managers from around the country. Each roundtable will have an official moderator to help guide the conversation.
Concurrent Sessions run on Wednesday and Thursday while Product Zone Sessions are featured during the expo hours between 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. The women in FM panel and a reception concludes Wednesday’s activities.

The Hybrid Workplace Threats, Liabilities, Employer Exposure/Employee Life Safety Issues Work from Home with Bo Mitchell
President and CEO, 911 Consulting. The Hybrid Workforce multiplies the threats, liabilities and legal exposure for all employers regarding the life safety of all their employees. Employers have the sole duty of care for employee life safety for both work from home and work at office. Under federal law, the employee has no duty of care for their own life safety. Thus, the hybrid workforce doubles the employer’s legal exposure regarding employee injury and death.
Better Planning for Today’s Unknowns, presented by Angel Garcia, Sunbelt Rentals.
Commissioning is an Energy Code Requirement: Lesson learned that you need to know, presented by Tony Di Leonardo, LEED AP, CxA and president, Wick Fisher White and Andrew O’Pella, PE, senior mechanical engineer, Wick Fisher White.

NFMT provides extensive Product Zone Tracks during expo hall hours where exhibitors explore topics in 20-minute sessions.
