Facilities Management Ireland 2015 Conference

Facilities Management Ireland is a Conference and Exhibition which has been launched in direct response to the growth in the Irish companies looking for information and solutions to improve their efficiency and reduce the cost of running their business environment. It is being held at the RDS in Dublin on 4th and 5th March 2015.

Now in its seventh year the show continues to meet the needs of those responsible for maintaining and managing commercial, industrial, retail, educational, government and other large facilities and working environments.

We all know that facilities represent the biggest cost after salaries for most organisations. But simply doing things more cheaply isn’t the whole story. Every aspect of facilities management ultimately contributes to people’s well-being and productivity – which shows up on the bottom line, too.

FM Ireland is the only event that covers the entire spectrum of ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ FM services and products. Summing up this vast, complex industry isn’t easy, but we’ve identified three compelling factors that consistently bring visitors to FM Ireland:

PRODUCTS. PEOPLE. PRACTICES.

Registration Opens at 09.00am on both Days
