Duesseldorf/Manchester, June 2008. Facility Management (FM) has to become part of the corporate strategy in order to meet economic and ecological demands. This is the principal result of the European Facility Management Conference (EFMC) which was held on 10 and 11 June in Manchester, United Kingdom. More than 400 delegates from 30 countries discussed international FM strategies, sustainability, education and change management. The Business Conference and the accompanying Research Symposium were hosted by the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) and the European Facility Management Network (EuroFM). "FM grows and becomes more professional," summarized Remko Oosterwijk, Chairman of the CEN/TC 348 standardization committee. David Martinez, Consultancy Director at 3G-Office and Secretary of IFMA Spain, appealed to preserve the strategic value of FM to secure the FM profession and business. "FM has a key role in the development of a sustainable society," declared Peter Cordy, Chairman of the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM). Economist and futurist Hamish McRae deprived a "great commercial opportunity for the FM business" from the current development of global economy. Further information on the internet at:

The next European Facility Management Conference (EFMC) will take place on 16 and 17 June 2009 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
