EFMC 2019 in Dublin at a glance
It says a lot about a conference when it celebrates its 27th edition in over 30 years
The next 12th, 13th, 14th and 15th of June the city of Dublin, in Ireland, will host the XXVII edition of the European Facility Management Conference (EFMC). The event will be held at the Aviva Stadium, a place in which top bloggers, podcasters, influencers and motivators from areas such as customer experience, workplace engagement, or digitalization will share the stage with leading researchers and renowned FM directors from international private corporations and official organizations.
The European Facility Management Conference is the largest FM event in Europe with more than 25 years of history. It is the flagship of FM in Europe, bringing people together from all over the world. Delegates from 50 countries and 4 continents attended last year. The audience is mainly composed of Facility Management professionals seeking knowledge, ideas and solutions for their daily problems. It is also a unique opportunity to share experiences and to network.
About the program
On 12th June will take place the EuroFM Ambassadors Assembly. The recent international EuroFM Ambassadors Programme has led to several representatives worldwide to become members of EuroFM to spread their philosophy and join forces. This meeting will serve to share experiences and propose the next objectives. Also, this day, the Welcome Reception will be, where EuroFM wants to welcome everybody with its traditional reception, prior to the conference. This will be a great opportunity to gather all the FM community, creating the perfect environment to meet up.
On the 13th and 14th of June, the conference days will take place. Great experts from Europe, US, Latin America and Asia will share their experience with the audience. Under the motto “One place, one voice, one FM”, this year the format will be an innovative concert-style approach at the AVIVA stadium central Atrium: all events will take place in the same space, so that attendees may maximize networking time without missing out on the highlights of the programme. Food and drink will be served non-stop, allowing attendees to eat when it suits them, or to keep going with a double expresso at any time of day. Flexible seating and a range of exciting ambiences will recreate some of the most up-to-date workplaces in the market.
We don’t need key note speakers, because all of them are. They will be the rock stars of the event. Top bloggers, podcasters, influencers and motivators from areas such as customer experience, workplace engagement, or digitalization will share the stage with leading researchers and renowned FM directors from international private corporations and official organizations. With no commercial or marketing presentations, each speaker will focus on conveying know-how, innovation and inspiration. This edition, some of the subjects will be further explored in what we call Open Workshops. Throughout the day, specialists will share their expertise with attendees, who may in turn participate and generate debate. All findings and conclusions will be included in a report distributed freely after the event. Aware that the future of FM lies in the solid academic training of tomorrow’s professionals, a place under the spotlight will be reserved at the workshops for students. A prize will be given to the most outstanding student at the awards ceremony on Friday afternoon. The Best of the Year in all categories, not only in academia, will also be announced. A cocktail party will conclude two intense days with over 45 speakers and half a dozen workshops. But don’t forget, there is more on Saturday! Finally on 15th June guided tours will be held. Experts will show emblematic buildings, it is a great opportunity to learn first-hand the management of buildings and their facilities. Looking at the origin of the attendees from over 50 countries in previous EFMCs, one thing is clear: “EuroFM” has evolved into an international network, with universities, research centers, professional organizations and corporations from all over the world. It has become an open network for Facility Management with no flags or private interests, just FM, One FM. The EFMC is the annual reunion where stakeholders from five continents interact to promote and shape the future of the profession. Dublin is a gem in the FM sector. It is the HQ of many leading blue-chip FM companies, some of whom will be on stage at the event and visiting on Saturday. The city is also synonymous with Guinness, single malt whiskey, music, dance, and historic buildings. And seriously, what better time of year to visit than June? As conference organizers, our secret at CIFMERS GLOBAL is our passion for Facility Management. This year we are offering a recipe for success: lower rates for attendees (30% off last year’s rates), affordable options for sponsors (from €500), a world-class venue and top speakers and presenters.
