The International Facilities Management Association's World Workplace Conference & Expo is recognized as the largest annual conference and exposition for facility management and related professions.

Whether you are attending the conference for the first time or returning for another year, IFMA has many exciting events and learning sessions planned for you.
Between the Facility Tours, the IFMA 5k Fun Run, and the Expo, your schedule is likely chock full of fun and educational events from morning until bedtime. IFMA has really outdone themselves this year, scheduling renowned business leaders from across the globe to speak and share their stories of success, innovation, and technological investments.
We are very proud to announce that iOFFICE’s very own Elizabeth Dukes will be speaking at the Educational Sessions. We do hope you’ll attend her session, Tech Stories from the Frontline, where Elizabeth will share real-life stories from some of today’s leading FM professionals.
Tech Stories from the Frontline
In leading an enterprise to success, every workplace manager faces the challenge of delivering a productive, innovative, and engaging workspace. Historically, this meant offering a setting where employees could work alone, while still designing a space that allowed for chance encounters of workforce collaboration. With the rise of technology and the Internet of Things, the workplace isn’t just about working as an individual anymore, and is no longer limited to four walls and a desk. The workspace is everywhere - the coffee shop, the commute to work, and even our homes.
But, with so much technology available today, identifying the best tools for your enterprise can prove paralyzing, leaving many facilities leaders wondering where to turn. Sifting through the myriad of trends, best practices, and workplace tools requires courage and a commitment to the greater good - a pioneer, always on the hunt for greater opportunities for the business they manage.
That commitment, however, yields dynamic results for those brave enough to take the plunge into uncharted territory. Join Elizabeth as she takes you through 5 unique FM Leader’s stories, sharing their experience in applying the Three Key Elements to Workplace Transformation - Embrace Technology, Integrate Technology, and Measure. While each story is unique, they all share the commonalities of commitment to these three elements, and the results are astounding.
If you’re ready to take the next step towards leading your facility to success, be sure to attend Elizabeth’s Educational Session on Thursday, October 6 at 8am in Room 7A. She will share her insight into how to pave the path for workplace transformation, which tools necessary to succeed in the modern workplace, and share powerful strategies and forecasting tools that will help achieve buy-in from both the C-Suite and your workforce. We’ll see you in San Diego!
