Taking place on 14 June in London, the one day event will be chaired by RICS Facilities Management Board chair and ISS managing director Kath Fontana FRICS.

Key themes will include the importance of collaboration between FM and construction, strategic procurement and FM in critical environments.

Presentations will include focus on the development of artificial intelligence in FM, 'smart' FM and how to create effective workplaces to attract, promote and retain talent.
