World Workplace is the original all-encompassing learning and networking event on facilities and how to manage them. There’s program value for FM professionals at every point of their careers and across all types of facilities. World Workplace Europe is the gold standard for discovering new ideas and technology from around the world impacting the European FM industry.

With appealing national and international speakers from both inside and outside the field, Facility for Future is a must for all innovators and other parties involved in facilitating the workplace and the work environment of tomorrow.
