Total guidance on trends

30 September 2011

Total Workplace Management, one of the most interesting events on the calendar for FMs, takes place from 11th – 12th October 2011 at London Olympia. Here is a brief overview of what you might see there

WITH FM BUDGETS INCREASING and remits broadening, it could be argued that the FM industry is recession proof. As such, in an attempt to improve energy efficiency and cut emissions, more and more organisations are outsourcing FM products and services due to the increased demands coming from both building owners and the Government.
Whilst the FM sector may be expanding, with greater efforts being made to reduce carbon, minimise waste, utilise energy and reduce overall costs, legislation and compliance requirements are also increasing, particularly with the Government’s mandatory CRC carbon reduction scheme. As a result, it is essential to gain guidance on the latest industry trends and legislation in order to stay ahead of the game.
Providing such guidance is the aim of Total Workplace Management – The FM and Estates Event, which bills itself as ‘the premier meeting place in the South East for the FM profession to network, increase knowledge base and establish new business relationships’. Total Workplace Management, run in association with the BIFM and its co-located events attracted nearly 7000 industry professionals through its doors in 2010 and this year visitors will see an even greater programme of proceedings throughout the two-day event.
Total Workplace Management continues its educational commitment to the sector by hosting its free conference programme. An array of distinguished speakers is set to deliver thought-provoking presentations and address the latest developments and key issues affecting the FM and estates industry.
The FM Academy (sponsored by RICS) will also see a number of debate sessions and panel discussions and in response to the ever expanding role of the FM, a new Fire, Safety and Security Zone is being introduced to Total Workplace Management 2011. This dedicated area will highlight exhibitors offering products and services across the fire, safety and security remits, and will also see the launch of the Fire, Safety & Security Theatre, where a series of panel sessions chaired by major industry bodies such as IOSH, BSIA and FIA will take place.
A centralised approach to FM
With energy efficiency and building services key elements of the FM’s remit, Total Workplace Management is co-located with Energy Solutions and M&E - The Building Services Event. These three events present an all-inclusive experience for any FM professional.
Energy Solutions is supported by The Carbon Trust, a global leader in providing specialist support to help businesses cut carbon emissions and save energy. Energy Solutions attracts energy users from all over the UK looking to source advice, products and services, and ultimately become more sustainable.
Run in association with CIBSE and supported by HVCA, NICEIC and ECA, M&E will cater for those who are interested in a range of building services industry areas including air conditioning, electrical installation, plumbing, heating and ventilation. In addition to building services engineering, there is also a clear focus on the issues surrounding safe working practices and the application of environmental protection.
Green technology
The Green FM Trail will allow visitors to discover exhibitors displaying products, services and innovation that help to produce green and sustainable businesses. Visitors to Total Workplace Management are invited to ask the experts and find out more about these green solutions.
As FM professionals are increasingly looking towards new technology to make their organisations more efficient, sustainable and productive, the Prop IT Trail plays host to
market leading IT solutions providers offering cutting-edge services in CAFM, document management, resource booking software, mobile communication and systems integration.
Focus on innovation
The Innovation Showcase sponsored by Kone returns to Total Workplace Management for its second year, with a new and improved format. Providing a platform for pioneering industry experts to present the latest industry advancements that also assist in energy efficiency, sustainability and profitability, the Innovation Showcase will also provide the opportunity to see practical demonstrations for these products.
Furthermore, the Innovation & Sustainability Awards take place during Total Workplace Management and showcase the success stories of the year; celebrating the people, products and services that have made a real difference in their industries.
