Facilities Show opens in Birmingham on Tuesday

06 May 2010

The Facilities Show, the UK’s leading FM event and winner of the 2009 AEO Award for Best Trade Exhibition, returns to the NEC Birmingham on 11 – 13 May

Having celebrated its tenth anniversary last year, the 11th annual Facilities Show will offer more educational content, industry renowned exhibitors and innovative features than ever before. Produced in association with the BIFM, the 2010 event is set to build on last year’s successes where more than 19,000 (combined with Safety & Health Expo and Fire & Rescue) industry professionals descended on the NEC Birmingham to see leading FM manufacturers, distributors and suppliers at the extensive exhibition.
Adrian Newton, Portfolio Director of Safety and Building Management at UBM Live, organisers of The Facilities Show, said: “The exponential growth of The Facilities Show over the last few years is a clear indication that facilities managers value this event exceptionally highly. It is a key date in their calenders and this is due to the accurate evolution of the show. By producing the event in association with the BIFM and through communication with the industry, we are ensuring that the programme is tailored to the key issues in the FM industry and we are confident that 2010 will deliver yet again.”
Education will once again take centre stage at The Facilities Show with two dedicated seminar theatres on the exhibition floor. The Facilities Show Seminar Theatre, sponsored by Moneypenny, will house an extensive programme focussing on the latest industry developments. In addition to a keynote presentation by Ian Fielder, Chair of BIFM, there will be a raft of topical presentations, including:
 'The cowboys are facing their alamo' - The British Parking Association / UK Parking Control Ltd, Richard Hilton - BDM / Rupert Williams – MD
 Managing maintenance: The opportunities and pitfalls with outsourcing building maintenance and compliance services - CLM, Paul Caddick – MD
 Double your money: FM and Construction Act 2009 - Nickleby, Nick Smale – Director
 Saving money and lives- the benefits of a web based permit to work systems - Banyards, Simon Oliff - MD
The Sustainable FM Academy, sponsored by FMX, will allow visitors to hear from industry leaders who will be discussing the business case and sharing best practice to make workplaces greener and more sustainable. Seminar topics include:
 Voltage Optimisation - Can you afford not to? - powerPerfector, Angus Robertson – CEO
 Low Energy Air Filters (CIBSE CPD Acredited Seminar) - Camfil Farr, Peter Dyment - Energy Consultant
 Energy efficient buildings- Web based real time energy monitoring, The first step to energy efficient buildings - Building Sustainability Ltd, George Bartley - Managing Director
 Green roofing and and refurbishment - The sustainable solutions - Bauder, Paul Munley - Regional Manager
At a time when facilities managers are taking greater responsibility for the energy management of their buildings, The Facilities Show 2010 is set to launch the Energy Management Zone, sponsored by powerPerfector. Following research at the end of the 2009 event, it was apparent that 30% of visitors had responsibility for energy management or supply. Therefore to address this growing requirement, the new zone will house some of the leading providers of energy products and services to give visitors the opportunity to address all their energy management needs in one dedicated pavilion. Camfil Farr, Energy Intelligence Group and IM Serve are just some of the names exhibiting within the first ever Energy Management Zone.
Today, organisations are seeking more efficient, productive and sustainable FM solutions so The Facilities Show is set to highlight such products to its visitors with a dedicated trail. New for 2010, the Prop IT Trail will highlight market leading companies offering cutting edge products in computer aided facilities management (CAFM), document management, resource booking software, security and fire services, mobile communication and systems integration. FSI, Serco – FM Easy and Qube Global Software are just a few of the companies participating in the first ever Prop IT Trail.
The Green FM Trail returns for 2010 to highlight exhibitors offering advice, product and services in response to the ever growing green challenge.
Finally, visitors to The Facilities Show will have the opportunity to relax and unwind at The Facilities Show Bar, sponsored by PPL.
Further details on The Facilities Show 2010 will be announced in the coming weeks. Please keep visiting the website and follow us on twitter @facilities_show for the latest information.
