World FM Day 2018
Theme: Enabling positive experiences
Date: 16 May 2018; events between 14-18 May 2018
Once a year the global facilities management community comes together to celebrate FM on World FM Day .
Duncan Waddell, Chairman of Global FM, said: “The 2018 theme shines the spotlight on facilities management’s important role across the globe. Facility managers deliver exceptional customer experiences worldwide across multiple sectors and World FM Day is an important time for us to reflect on that. You will find that FM directly impacts many industries and there are examples in travel and tourism, residential, entertainment, sport & leisure, health and education, as well as the wider workplace.
“The often unexpected and disruptive influences in our global environment must be managed effectively to ensure stability and success in the sectors that rely on the results of the facility manager and their teams. This ensures that facilities meet high expectations to enhance life in the built environment, whether it is at work, rest or play.”
World FM Day, initiated by Global FM, is a day to recognise the vital work that facilities management professionals and the facilities management industry contributes to business worldwide. It aims to raise the profile of the FM profession, not just in member regions, but anywhere FMs influence the health, safety, productivity and well-being of people who utilise the built environment.
World FM Day provides an opportunity for global knowledge sharing, to discuss and share experiences both good and challenging, to promote our profession and celebrate our successes.
It is a day where facilities management professionals use to reflect on their achievements over the past year.
