European participants convene in Houston for World Workplace

Oct. 23, 2017

On 18-20 October, roughly 60 delegates from Europe convened in Houston, Texas, USA for the global World Workplace Conference and Expo as participants, speakers and exhibitors.

Here's what one attendee had to say about the event:

“Houston, we didn’t have a problem…it was all the contrary.
 
On October 2017 I attended IFMA’s World Workplace in Houston, Texas; it was my first participation to such an event and I must thank all who organized and prepared it. Congratulations to all ​chapters, ​communities and ​councils of IFMA and to sponsors, speakers and partners!

The World Workplace is a wonderful event to meet, network and globally learn about FM and ​real estate among peers. As a new member of IFMA (less than one year when World Workplace took place) I understood how universal our job is and how necessary it is to share experiences with others, even sometimes with a difference in culture and habits.
 
As the event took place in Houston, it was impossible for me not to visit the Space Centre, a worthwhile visit directly linked to the closing keynote by the astronauts, the Kelly brothers. Their performance was a fantastic lesson in ambition, doggedness and humility. They concluded: The sky is never the limit!
 
I hope to be once again with IFMA Communities, Councils and Chapters in the future and recommend World Workplace Europe in Barcelona, 15-17 May 2018, to all and particularly to the Europeans members who couldn’t go to Houston in October.”
