In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s National Conference & Exhibition will be held as a virtual event. Join us for Ideaction.Virtual on Tuesday 2 June 2020!

The theme of this year’s conference – Ahead of the Game 2020: Virtualising the FM Industry – reflects the way our world has changed since the sudden outbreak of coronavirus. As we struggle to adapt to the sweeping changes in our daily lives, most facilities remain open and buildings still need to be maintained. As an essential service, the facilities management industry must adapt to the different circumstances in order to continue operating safely and efficiently throughout the lockdown.

By switching to a virtual platform, the Association is able to continue its objectives to act as a thought leader, to encourage knowledge sharing, and to foster connections across the industry. The comprehensive program will include a range of online features, such as webinars, live panel discussions, online presentations and interactive Q&A sessions.

We are confident that the opportunities offered by modern technology will allow us to deliver the usual knowledge-rich conference experience that has supported learning and development in our industry for over 25 years. We hope you will join us in embracing this unique learning opportunity.

In light of the constantly evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation, we have made the decision to hold Ideaction.2020 as a virtual conference. This will allow us to continue encouraging industry thought leadership and knowledge sharing, while safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our members, event attendees and staff.

We are confident that a comprehensive virtual program can deliver the knowledge-rich conference experience that has supported learning and development in our industry for over 25 years. The virtual program will include a range of online features such as live webinars, panel discussions, online presentations and interactive Q&A sessions.

We believe that a digital platform offers many exciting possibilities, and hope you will join us as we rise to the challenges and opportunities of a new decade.

The theme of this year’s conference, Ahead of the Game 2020: Virtualising the FM Industry, focuses on today’s rapidly changing environment. We will explore what lies ahead, while embracing new trends and technologies. There is an expectation that this year’s content will attract a high degree of interest, given its direct relationship to contemporary issues.

The four streams remain unchanged: Defining the FM Future, Building Momentum in FM, Standards & Regulations and Social Responsibility in FM. As with previous years, the National Conference will give FM professionals the opportunity to better understand the changing landscape through research, case studies and shared experiences.

I hope you can join us for Ideaction.Virtual, our first virtual National Conference!
