Workplace Futures has become a landmark event in the UK facilities management calendar.

The theme for 2016 - FM: Agent of Change.


The world we live and operate in today is drastically different to the one we knew 20, 10 or even 5 years ago – and the speed of this change is increasing all the time.

Nowhere is this truer than in the workplace. A complex set of factors and emerging trends – from scientific and, specifically, technological progress to the birth and evolution of important social movements – will shape both the way we work and the environments in which we work.

As the workplace discipline responsible for these two areas, facilities management stands perfectly primed to enact and lead much of this change. But before this is possible, it must ask some critical questions:

  • How will tomorrow’s workplace look, feel and operate?
  • What skills will the facilities manager need to be the agent of this change?
  • What will be the defining issues of the 21st Century workplace?

By bringing together a panel of carefully selected expert speakers and an audience of high-ranking FM leaders to answer these questions, Workplace Futures 2016 will show how facilities management can play a crucial role in a changing world.

Workplace Futures provides a unique opportunity to identify – and help shape - the future of FM.

This is an industry that plays a critical role in the success of virtually every private and public sector organisation.

Past Conferences

Convergence in the Workplace

Increasingly, FM must work in concert with other organisational support disciplines: CRE, HR, IT, finance, marketing, procurement. The days of traditional silo working are surely numbered. Change is happening.

Making Innovation Work

Innovation is a big topic in FM. Clients asks for it, and providers promise it – often in a seemingly unending cycle. But what is innovation? How do you identify it, how do you measure it, how do you assess the benefits?

Strategic Partnership: Securing The Future of FM

We need to move on. We need to take FM theory and practice to the next level. We need to stop thinking about service delivery in the old ‘tried & tested’ ways and start thinking in terms of true alignment with business objectives and real customer experience.

New Needs, New Solutions?

FM is a business discipline and a service industry. It is a simple service delivery requirement and a mission-critical support operation. Given that vast range, what does the future hold and is FM ready to face up to the big challenges ahead?

Workplace Futures provides a unique opportunity to identify – and help shape - the future of FM.

This is an industry that plays a critical role in the success of virtually every private and public sector organisation. Join in the debate – make your mark on the business - get involved in this important event.

What is Workplace Futures about?
This is one conference that will address – directly and effectively – some of the most pressing issues in FM today: how do we work more positively, more collaboratively, to show innovation and to add value and genuinely demonstrate that? If FM fails to embrace change and move forward, the result is inevitable - it's simply a race to the bottom in pursuit of reducing costs.
