An increasing number of multinational companies are investigating the possibility of organizing their facility management and corporate real estate at a global or regional level. As a result, cooperation between FM departments in different countries and across regions is becoming more relevant, global FM departments emerge, FM providers offer worldwide solutions and global contracts will gain popularity.
The Global FM Journey
To share knowledge and experiences and learn more about Global FM, Hospitality Group, in collaboration with CBRE and ISS, organizes an international conference: ‘The Global FM Journey’. We compiled a program with best practices and interactive cases. Besides an intellectual challenge the program is aimed at building up your network of top FM leadership contacts in multinational companies.
If one of the following questions is relevant within your organization this conference will certainly give you food for thought:
– What are the opportunities and pitfalls of organizing FM across borders?
– What are possibilities to leverage scale and skills by using your global network?
– What are the possibilities to combine global scale and local solutions?
– Does global procurement of FM offer opportunities?
As a recognised FM executive you are cordially invited to attend this conference in London, which will take place on Thursday the 23rd of March 2017. In an effort to make the interaction even more valuable, we strongly encourage you to bring along your international FM colleagues. Participation is free of charge, travel and lodging expenses are for people’s own account. To register please click here.
