EuroFM and the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) are honored to present the 2014 European Facility Management Conference – the most recognized, all-encompassing educational and networking event for Facility Management professionals in Europe.
In the wake of tremendous success at EFMC 2013 in Prague, the 2014 conference promises to once again meet and exceed the high expectations of our attendees. The beautiful and historic city of Berlin will host EFMC 2014 providing the perfect blend of culture and entertainment for facility management experts!
As part of our ongoing efforts to improve the conference, this year’s focus is “FM – Innovation, Integration, Vision.” As FM’s management role increases due to routine decision-making in FM projects and the rapidly changing demands and needs of clients, innovation in FM needs a substantial boost, driven through technology, new business models and integrated FM processes.
The conferences offer value for all facility professionals, and as in previous years, we anticipate a global representation of the industry in attendance. Despite different world views and national cultures, all Facility Managers face similar issues and challenges – from demographic changes to energy management and organizational development.
EFMC 2014 will host two symposia: one for business and practice and another for research and education. Together, they help bridge the academic experience and modern industry in order to discover best practices and assess future visions.
Attendees are invited to participate in (pre-conference) events such as the Welcome Reception, Student Poster Gallery Contest, the Gala Dinner, the EuroFM Awards and the exhibition, each recognizing outstanding achievements in Facility Management.
For those who wish to expand their professional contacts, EFMC 2014 also offers a platform for networking with delegates and speakers, as well as students, educators, professors and researchers in the field.
Please join us as we recognize and share global best practices in Facility Management at EFMC 2014 on 4-6 June 2014, in Berlin, Germany.
We look forward to seeing you there.
