World FM Day

World FM Day is about you. It's a day of celebration and recognition for the facility management profession. It's a time to bring the behind-the-scenes heroes of the built environment into the limelight and share well-deserved thanks for keeping our facilities healthy, safe and productive.

World FM Day is May 16 this year, ​but we encourage celebrations throughout the month of May to recognize the vital work that facility management professionals and the FM industry contribute to businesses worldwide and our lives.
