Feb 21 London, United Kingdom Workplace Futures Conference 2023 (FM) Information Facilities Management Ltd. (i-FM.net)

Workplace Futures Conference 2023Workplace Futures, the annual conference for the facilities management, workplace and property sectors, is back at One Great George Street in London. First launched in 2007, each year’s event has a different theme focusing on current and emerging issues. The theme for 2023 is “Technology in the Workplace: Beyond the Information Age.” The Information Age has seen us embrace technology and the resulting data — collecting it, analyzing it and converting it (with greater or lesser success) into strategies and decisions that deliver real benefits. In facilities management, for several years the discussion has been around the opportunities that the power of technology offers to change much of what we do for the better — more of the right information faster, more insight into problems and solutions, more efficient use of resources, better outcomes, better personal experiences. We all have the opportunity to collectively imagine, create and define the future we want to inhabit and work in, before it arrives and we lose much of the chance to shape it. We are already experiencing how the pandemic has fast-tracked how, where and when we wish to work, and how the workplace needs to respond, to be transformed and to provide an environment for collaboration and creativity. The event provides valuable insights on this theme and offers educational sessions, time for discussion and networking, and the presentation of the i-FM Technology in FM Award.
