The European Leaders Conference held in London autumn 2014, hosted by RICS and initiated by FMN (the Netherlands), was a great success. Having experienced that leading FM national associations together brings forward the advancement of FM in Europe. EuroFM herewith announces the next edition of the European Leaders Conference on October 29 – 30, 2015 in Milan, Italy.
During the inspiring and productive Conference International Facility Management (CIFM) meeting in Madrid late September 2015, several national associations of Europe (Finland, Netherlands, Bulgaria, Hungary, Spain, Portugal and others) and Latin America (Brazil, Peru, Mexico, Chili, Panama, Columbia and others) were present. Together with these associations’ mutual challenges and expectations for the future as national associations in FM were discussed.
The short brainstorm session with the attending FM national associations resulted in a good input for the European Leaders Conference 2015 agenda in Milan. The following topics have been determined:
- What do members expect from a national association and to what level are they prepared to
pay for that? What should then be the business model?
- What is the corporate identity as a national association and what is the communication strategy
- Members want training and education: how to provide this?
- Members want knowledge, new insights and solutions for their problems: how to support this?
EuroFM looks forward to explore these aforementioned topics, bringing together and realizing the new initiatives which will increase the collaboration of the FM practitioners that will bring the advancement of the facility management industry further in Europe.
The European Leaders Conference will take place on Thursday 29 October 2015 at 13:00-16:00PM and Friday 30 October 2015 15:00 – 17:00PM.
