About the Conference

World Workplace Asia 2014

Consequent to the robust development taking place in Asia's megacities, IFMA and the FM community recognized an urgent need to bring forward-looking strategies and solutions to the Asia-Pacific region. The concept came to fruition 3 years ago with IFMA's first World Workplace Asia 2011 conference in Hong Kong, and will continue to grow and expand this year with World Workplace Asia 2014.

This year, the conference theme is FM in Asia: Facilities Management Beyond Boundaries. Backed by more than 30 years of experience hosting the annual World Workplace Conference & Expo in the United States, World Workplace Asia 2014 will welcome facility practitioners from all over the world representing all aspects of the workplace environment—facility management, real estate, information technology, human resources, engineering, architecture, design, security and other related industries.

This two day event will bring together distinguished keynote speakers, a diverse marketplace with vast networking opportunities and much more. Sessions will focus on proven methods, strategies and solutions for heightening facility performance, directing efficient workplace programs, and becoming a more effective leader. Attendees can expect to gain fresh ideas and concrete information applicable to their daily responsibilities and return to their offices prepared to make recommendations that benefit the triple bottom line. The premise of the World Workplace educational experience is to offer leading FM education.
