Ideaction.2017 - Gold Coast, Queensland






The Annual Facilities Management Conference and Exhibition, Ideaction.2017, was held at the Gold Coast Conference and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) over three days in May. The event kicked off on Sunday May 14 with the Chairman’s Welcome Reception at the Sofitel and continued through some glorious Gold Coast weather.


The Facility Management Association’s CEO, Nicholas Burt says “the theme ‘Shaping our future’, clearly articulated the constant need for the industry to proactively approach the many challenges we face from both outside influences and within the industry, including advances in technology, changes to legislation and shifts in community expectations”.


The National Facilities Management Conference is now in its 8th year and remains the largest facilities management conference developed by the industry, for the industry. Ideaction continues to grow and develop as the leading conference for this industry.


The conference and exhibition gave attendees the chance to hear first-class presentations from industry professionals who are shaping the future of the industry with advances in areas such as, science and technology, diversity, sustainability and strategy, Building Information Modelling (BIM) and smart and healthy workplaces. This was an opportunity for the industry to better understand the current position, but to also understand what kinds of innovations will present themselves in the FM industry in the future.
