The event will seek to achieve consensus on best practice approaches to identifying and mitigating risk in the wake of recent, high-profile developments in the sector. Considering multiple forms of risk and bringing together the profession’s most eminent practitioners, the conference will deliver a comprehensive programme of learning.

A fixture in the UK Facility Management calendar, this is a must-attend for professionals committed to remaining relevant and competitive in an increasingly unpredictable marketplace.

Key Sessions

  • Commercial real estate in the UK – a market overview
    Considering the UK’s current and future relationship with the European Union, and other global partners, the session will assess the health of the UK’s commercial real estate market.
  • Instilling confidence in an era of declining trust
    The current age is characterised by declining levels of confidence in previously trusted institutions. Across the fields of politics, media, finance and business, public attitudes seem to have turned hostile. Considering the social and professional implications of this development, the session will look at causes of and remedies for this widespread decline in trust. Further attention will be given to how an industry striving for full and fair recognition of its contribution to the world of commercial real estate can buck the trend. 
  • Senior leaders’ roundtable
    Bringing together a selection of the industry’s most respected practitioners and high-value clients, the roundtable will consider at the challenge of remaining relevant in a constantly changing and serially disrupted real estate market.
  • Training and retaining talent: addressing future skills requirements today
    A session looking at emerging skills priorities, improved talent identification and recruitment processes. What is the role of the skills agenda in projecting a positive image of the profession, and its cohort of dynamic, solution-focused professionals?
  • RICS Procurement of facility management: Global professional statement, 1st edition
    Providing information and guidance on various crucial factors throughout the procurement process, including activities and key decisions during planning, procurement and post-procurement, the international update of RICS Procurement of Facility Management professional statement will establish a global blueprint for best practice procurement of FM services.
  • The trillion-dollar question: why outsourcing works in the 21st century With the total value of global outsourced FM services predicted to hit the US$1tn mark by 2025, the industry would seem to be in rude health. Nonetheless, the collapse of Carillion in 2018 severely undermined public confidence in outsourced delivery models. This session will look at collaborative work taken by leading outsourcers to improve perceptions in the market, and rehabilitate the model in the popular imagination.
