WORLD FM WEEK 2017: 15-19 May

Enabling positive experiences

Initiated in 2008 by Global FM, World FM Day aims to raise the profile of the FM profession anywhere FMs influence the health, safety, productivity and well-being of people who utilize the built environment.

World FM Day will be held this year on 17 May. However, celebrations are encouraged throughout the entire week of ​15-19 May, adding more opportunities to recognize the facility management profession and the people who practice it.

The 2017 theme, “enabling positive experiences,” is about highlighting how FM enables exceptional spaces that enhance life.
