BIFM London conference reveals programme

BIFM_Awards winnerTickets are now available for the British Institute of Facilities Management London annual conference, which takes place on 16th March at King’s Place in London.

Mark Downes, former Olympic Venues Project Director and Head of Service at the London Legacy Development Corporation, will kick off the London-themed event with a presentation looking at the legacy of the Olympic Park. Chris Moriarty, development director at the Leesman Index, will follow discussing occupancy density in the capital and whether there is a tipping point when too many people occupy too small a space and their performance is negatively affected.

Other speakers include Peter McLennan, MSc Course Director in Facility and Environment Management at the Bartlett School of Graduate Studies, UCL discussing the impact of tuition fees on FM qualifications and trends in career progression in FM; Monica Parker from Hatch revealing her latest workplace research; and Bartlett Mitchell on what to look for when providing coffee in the workplace, including a hands-on coffee tasting and milk art session.

Mike Lynch, commander indigenous covert operations forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, will close the day by revealing his experience in ‘behind the lines’ covert target development, having served the longest operational tour in Afghanistan in the history of the modern day British Army.

The event’s main sponsors are Principle Cleaning, Mayflower Washroom Services and BPR Group while exhibitors include Condeco, StaySafe, PRS and the Centre for Accessible Environments. Tickets cost £103 for BIFM members and £153 for non-members. To book your place, visit: Regonline
