  • Why Workplace Futures

    Each year’s Workplace Futures programme is carefully designed to focus closely on current and emerging issues in FM, bringing together some of the best speakers available to shed light and share information. Too many industry events do little more than scratch the surface or offer little more than thinly veiled sales presentations. You’ll get neither from Workplace Futures.

  • Why you should attend

    Workplace Futures is unique. Unlike most events in this industry which simply come and go, this conference builds each year on the success of previous years. Consequently, we have a strong and loyal following, combined with new and fresh interest in each new programme – each of which is designed to deliver real insights and practical advice drawn from frontline experience as well as focused research.

  • Who should attend

    The day is designed specifically for people responsible for FM actions and decisions, whether they are involved in communicating, marketing, selling, procuring or developing services - and, of course, those on the ground implementing and delivering those services, too. Basically, anyone with a genuine interest in the industry and its future.

  • An outstanding track record

    Workplace Futures was launched in 2007. In the years since, more than 220 speakers have offered experience, insights and advice to well over 3100 delegates. The conference theme changes each year to reflect current issues and trends: in the past we’ve looked at the convergence of disciplines and services, the business imperatives of people and profit, the commoditisation challenge, strategic partnerships and innovation.

  • The pre-eminent FM event

    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.

Fiona PerrinChair, Independent Builders Merchants Group

“Workplace Futures is one of the only ‘must-attend’ events in the FM calendar because it is unafraid to position industry disruptors alongside thought-provoking leaders – and then demand that the audience joins in to debate the issues. The networking is superb, too.”

Simon Jacobs
Simon JacobsCMO EMEA, SoftBank Robotics

“The Workplace Futures conference consistently challenges the thinking in our industry and provides the platform for consideration of best-practice concepts. Never afraid to be contentious and challenge the status quo, this is achieved not for the sake of it but to really move things forwards.”

Lucy Jeynes
Lucy JeynesManaging Director, Larch Consulting

“The Workplace Futures conference is an anchor event in my calendar. For me, it’s the thinking person’s FM event – it doesn’t have to cater for a broad church of junior members with “FM For Dummies” sessions, but is pitched at a level which engages and challenges the senior figures in the sector, as is evidenced by its delegate-list of decision-makers (this makes for some of the most interesting and useful networking).

The conference programmers clearly have their fingers on the pulse, working hard each year to identify the issues of the day and the important trends. The presenters are high-quality and their content is challenging, plus the snappy slots mean that no one gets to drone on for too long.

On-trend topics with skilled, engaging presenters and a high-level audience lead to great interaction and dialogue. This is a don’t-miss day.”

"Workplace Futures is one of the few events I make every year because it focuses on the core of performance and leadership, coupled with great insight. The one-time move to online will be sustainable, I’m sure – I’ll be there for the content - but I can’t wait for the face-to-face conference to resume. I have been a supporter of i-FM.net and this conference from the very early days as the best source of industry insight."

"Workplace Futures remains the most relevant and challenging FM conference of the year, a conference that is not afraid to tackle the key issues of the day head on. Workplace Futures combines high quality content with a desire to engage and stimulate audience participation and debate. As a past panellist, presenter and attendee, Workplace Futures always offers great content, significant opportunities to network and is delivered in a relaxed, engaging but highly professional way."
