FM in the spotlight at Big 5

FM Expo - DubaiFacilities management has grown into a significant sector within the region's construction industry. (Image source: Gfree/sxc.hu)

Facilities management is one of the fastest-growing professions within the GCC community and will form a key focus area at this year's Big 5 exhibition

All those globally trend-setting structures and infrastructure projects across the region need to be properly looked after if they are to retain their jaw-dropping sparkle and continue to function as they should.

This need extends to all the unseen, but essential activities, such as ensuring all the luminaires are well within the hours they are designed to run for. Not an easy task in a lofty modern Gulf atrium.

As a result of this industry sector's importance, the World FM Congress was launched alongside The Big 5 last year, and 2012 sees the second edition of a key event at which global speakers representing world-class facilities – Masdar City and the 2012 Olympics Park will be featured amongst others this year – will be able to tell you all you need to know about successful project management on the mega scale.
