​World FM Day 2019

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 1​5 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.

You don’t need to register to participate — simply make a note of the date and commit to celebrating the profession, whether that’s by thanking an FM, attending an FM-related event (or hosting your own) or taking advantage of free resources from IFMA.
