World Workplace® Europe returns to Amsterdam in 2020

July 03, 2019
IFMA and its alliance partner Facility Management Netherlands (FMN) have announced that next year’s World Workplace® Europe will again be held at the Kromhouthal in Amsterdam, 18 to 20 March 2020.

With record-breaking attendance, an innovative and inspirational program, and a high level of interaction among delegates, the 2019 event was a milestone for IFMA and FMN in Europe, and the atmosphere in the Kromhouthal was exhilarating. Once a manufacturing facility for large marine engines, the Kromhouthal is now a leading destination for a range of events in Amsterdam. 

IFMA represents the global facility management community, with members in 100 countries. FMN is the Dutch professional association for the facility sector. Each association brings a unique approach and level of expertise to the event program, creating a valuable educational and networking experience specifically geared toward facility management in Europe.

“The success of this year’s event benefitted our members and helped leverage our profession in Europe,” said Jos Duchamps, chair of IFMA’s European Advisory Board. “IFMA’s global perspective and FMN’s connection to local professionals is an extraordinary mix that will stimulate FM professionals to discuss, learn, interact and share experiences in 2020.”

“I am proud that IFMA and FMN will continue their cooperation to create again an innovative and exclusive event for the strategic playing field of the FM industry. With inspiring keynotes and several social events, we not only organize an event, but also give the opportunity to accelerate personal growth,” said Natalie Hofman, chair of FMN.

World Workplace Europe is the gold standard for discovering new ideas and technologies impacting the European FM industry. Educational sessions will be categorized under topic tracks, including Research and Development, Business and Education. Sessions will be relevant to all facility professionals, and each participant can personalize a learning agenda based on individual concerns, needs and interests.

Interactive workshops and panel discussions allow delegates to actively participate in building FM proficiency. Delegates won’t just acquire the latest facility management innovations and insights, they will work together to create, share and discover their own. Network tables are integrated with conference sessions and delegate socializing, allowing suppliers and sponsors to enjoy one-on-one conversations with professionals making buying decisions on behalf of their organizations.
