What you can expect
“2020 was a watershed year. Turbulence and uncertainty remain, but there is a clear consensus to build back better. The pandemic experience has fast-forwarded trends and disrupted established norms in a whole raft of areas that touch our profession and our professionalism. It’s time to assess, learn and channel that experience to shape our new stronger future." Chris Moriarty, Director, Insight and Engagement
A front line role, the conversation about how best to support remote working; action to make spaces secure and safe; innovation to create new types of productive spaces; a better understanding about the importance of the spaces where we work. These matters have defined the workplace and facilities management profession during these turbulent times and nailed its case as a value generator.
The global health emergency, which continues to frame the 2021 agenda has whetted appetites for change that have been brewing for decades. We must capitalise on that opportunity and the lessons the pandemic has taught us in stamping our authority on the future of work. Now is the time for the facilities profession to leverage the best opportunities in this key C21st debate.
Themed ‘emerging stronger’ and in a format that could be seen as a literal manifestation of the hybrid workplace future we’re all anticipating as we emerge post-crisis, the aim is to mark the start of a forward focused, positively charged revolution.
Our event pairs a physical delegate experience with a digital one in a curated blend of world-renowned thought leadership and cutting-edge best practice. Whether you’re ready for the City or your comfort zone’s the screen, we’re poised to immerse you in a brilliantly curated programme of razor sharp insight, sideways humour and practical know-how.
The safety of our delegates and guests is priority at our events. We are working closely with Etc Venues to ensure we adhere to the latest government guidance regarding COVID-19.
