The International Facility Management Association EMEA (IFMA EMEA), the European Facility Management Network (EuroFM) and Facility Management Netherlands (FMN) announced a partnership for World Workplace Europe 2022. By joining forces this event will cover the Academic, Research and Practitioners side of the European facility management community. The partnership will provide increased value to each association’s membership and encourage key connections to attend the high qualified hybrid World Workplace Europe event on March 23-24, 2022 at the Studios De Hallen in Amsterdam.
“Participating in this innovative and inspiring event by sharing research and educational content, contributes to the strong focus of EuroFM on promoting Facility Management across Europe and abroad,” said EuroFM’s Chair Pieter Le Roux. “Due to the current state of our industries, it was a no-brainer to team up and provide our diverse membership base with new opportunities to get inspired with various content-driven facility management topics.”
Through the partnership the program will offer all components, relevant to the FM industry: A Research track and Facility Tours in the morning, keynotes and educational sessions in the afternoon and lots of time to network and connect.
For more than 4 years, World Workplace Europe has been successfully organized by IFMA and FMN. The event has grown to be the gold standard in facility management education, knowledge exchange, career development, and professional networking.
World Workplace Europe is an event for professionals working in the larger built environment and workplace management services, as well as for academics, students and young professionals. The hybrid format will offer top-notch keynote speakers, education sessions, facility tours, deeper dive sessions and round tables, whether you are able to attend in person or virtually.
“Over the past year and a half, facility managers have implemented e with new ways of working to guide and support their buildings and team members through this challenging time. We felt partnering with EuroFM was the best way to connect our membership to the latest European innovations and solutions,” said Jos Duchamps, Chair of IFMA EMEA. “Both EuroFM and IFMA EMEA members benefit greatly from this partnership, and we look forward to the many opportunities ahead.”
“We’re excited to expand our partnership with the cooperation with EuroFM” said Michel Tobé, Chair of FMN. “By leveraging the strength of both associations and FMN, we are well-positioned to scale events, experiences, and member benefits internationally.”
