Get ready to warm up before winter as FM heads north to Darwin.
From Sunday 31st May 2020, facilities management professionals representing every aspect of the FM industry will be exposed to the unique environs of Darwin for Ideaction.2020, the Facilities Management National Conference & Exhibition.
This again will provide an opportunity to share information and build knowledge.
Facilities management is an industry that continually changes to meet the expectations of end users and as a result is continually changing and evolving. It constantly seeks and finds opportunities to innovate and implement technologies while meeting changing regulations. Facilities management is heating up to focus on the built environment as we move to 2030, with a need to address contemporary challenges such as building resilience, energy efficiency and user impact.
The 2020 Conference will offer you and your colleagues a valuable forum that brings together learnings.
We invite you to participate at the Ideaction.2020 National Conference, presenting within a range of key areas that challenge and enthuse the industry exploring strategic impact, technology, innovation, and policy and education related topics that influence and impact now and for years to come. The program will be exciting but opportunities to participate are limited, don’t miss out.
I look forward to Ideaction.2020 and once again hearing about the challenges and achievements of the facilities management recent experiences through the abstract presentation.
