Once a year the global facilities management community comes together to celebrate FM on World FM Day . The theme is ‘Empowering people for a productive world’, and will look at how facilities management (FM) enables different business disciplines to collaborate to deliver high quality business performance.

World FM Day, which is led by Global FM through its World FM Day Task Force, has been an annual celebration since 2009. It aims to recognise the vital work that FM professionals, and the FM sector, contributes to businesses worldwide whilst raising the profile of the FM profession across the globe.

All FM professionals are welcome to host events such as social media activity, luncheons, seminars and workshops, or by undertaking any other activity to celebrate and promote FM during the week 11 – 15 July.
