The Programme

Workplace Futures 2019 will take delegates on a journey, sharing the stories of companies in the marketplace – some exemplars of success, some facing more challenge. Our purpose will be to uncover information and insights around how FM service providers identify needs, expectations and opportunities, and specifically how they respond to these to build solid, positive business models. We’ll look at the classic small, medium and large company sectors, as well as some new ventures that could emerge as ‘disruptors’.
