Facility Management Specialists Head to Phoenix for Yearly Expo

If you work as a professional in facility management, then it’s a good idea for you to be in Phoenix at the end of the month. The World Workplace 2011 Conference & Expo will be held in the Phoenix Convention Center from October 26 – 28, and it will feature over 60 educational sessions pertaining to safety and performance in the workplace.

This year the annual conference will focus on subject matter such as corporate real estate, footprint reduction, flexible work programs, emergency preparedness, telecommuting, reducing your firm’s carbon footprint and energy savings. But what are great topics without great speakers, right? The organizers smartly recognize the need for qualified speakers and have again come through in that aspect. You can look forward to hearing from representatives employed by Cornell University, the U.S Army Corps of Engineers, the Smithsonian Institution and CB Richard Ellis among others.

Due to the economic slide the country has been experiencing over the past several years, there are a lot of companies out there that are looking to either implement or enhance their sustainability programs. Businesses are driving hard towards energy effective measures; not just for the positive PR associated with “going green,” but also because of the extra green it will put in their corporate bank accounts.

As I already detailed, the conference will delve into a number of areas in which modern sustainability efforts can benefit a company. Another way you can run the show more efficiently is by taking advantage of maintenance software. Our software programs are built to help simplify the management of your facilities, so that you can easily identify problem areas and come up with capable, practical solutions.

Getting back to the expo, don’t go thinking your attendance will only be beneficial to your employer. All facility management attendees will be eligible for continuing education credits for each session they are present for. So make the trek if you can, and come back better equipped to help your business and yourself.
