The Best in
PROFESSIONAL NETWORKING

FM + Strategy x Innovation = Your Formula for Success

Part of the perfect equation for improving facility performance, profitability and efficiency is having a support group of colleagues, industry and business leaders, vendors and topic experts you can call on for advice and information.

Build your FM know-who.

World Workplace has a community vibe you won’t find at other FM events. Why? It’s hosted by IFMA, the premier association for facility management professionals. IFMA’s commitment to support, represent and connect FMs worldwide carries over to our flagship event.

Past attendees have expressed amazement (and relief) over meeting others who share their professional interests. You’re not alone! Register today »

Meet professionals who speak your language.

  • Exchange ideas with FMs who manage similar workplaces.
  • Acquire best practices specific to your industry or facility type.
  • Discuss your FM challenges, and learn from the experiences of others.
  • Share your FM triumphs, and wow your peers with innovations you’ve driven in your organization.
  • Connect with professionals who get it, appreciate it and want to talk about it.

Start connecting immediately upon arrival.

Whether this is your 1st, 5th or 20th World Workplace, you’ll make more contacts, partners and friends than you ever thought possible.

Attend any number of special events geared toward breaking the ice and starting conversations—from the First-time Attendee Orientation and Expo Grand Opening, to the Welcome Reception and daily networking breaks.

Freely roam the expo floor…for free.

Anyone can attend the World Workplace expo at no cost. In addition to visiting with representatives from exhibiting companies, you can take advantage of free product demos and informational sessions (some expo sessions qualify for CEUs).

Engage in FM discussions as you tour facilities.

Register for behind-the-scenes tours of notable New Orleans facilities and get an insider’s view of operations, sustainability initiatives, renovation projects and innovative programs. Discuss what you see and learn with members of your tour group. Gaining a great idea or a new contact is time well spent.

Get involved in the future of your profession.

The IFMA Foundation collaborates with higher education institutions worldwide on accredited FM degree programs, FM student scholarships and FM academic research.

The Foundation hosts its biggest fundraising and recognition events at World Workplace. Invest in the future of the FM profession and have a great time doing so by registering for the annual golf tournament and evening celebration, and by attending the FM Academic Awards Reception.
