Facilities Show Connect (1-30 June 2021) will bring together the global facilities industry through an online marketplace and virtual meetings, while Europe’s largest dedicated in-person facilities event will return to London’s ExCeL in May 2022.
In place of this year’s in-person event in London, which had been scheduled to run from 12-14 July, the Facilities Show team will turn its full attention to Connect, an immersive, AI-powered, online experience that gives attendees the opportunity to engage with new international suppliers and peers through an online marketplace and tailored meeting recommendations throughout June 2021. It’s part of a series of online events co-located with IFSEC International, FIREX, Safety & Health Expo, Intelligent Building Europe and Workplace Wellbeing Show providing networking opportunities to bring our global communities together.
Combined, they will offer delegates the chance to learn from over 70 educational sessions, which feature over 100 speakers, and the opportunity to network with over 300 leading industry suppliers.
Leading industry players including FSI, SWG, Trimble, Vanti, and Your Workspace will be available for appointments when the platform opens for meetings from June 1st.
This year’s Facilities Show had been scheduled to take place at London’s ExCeL from 12-14 July, however the team is now focused on preparations for the 2022 edition, with leading names such as Beckhoff, SimPRO and NSS having already booked their space.
Chris Edwards, Group Director at Informa Markets, said: “We’ve worked tremendously hard along with our venue and contractor partners to deliver an event that is both safe and successful for all involved, but it’s become clear that with the ongoing international travel disruption and general uncertainty caused by the pandemic that transitioning to a vibrant online experience that the whole international security community can be part of is the right thing to do.
“Our virtual event, Facilities Show Connect, will offer delegates and suppliers the chance to come together online and we look forward to delivering an in-person series of events at a scale our customers are used to seeing in 2022.”
