Ideaction.2016 National Conference and Exhibition, Melbourne

 

The facilities management industry came together to share information, research and evidence based practise case studies at Ideaction.2016, the Facilities Management National Conference & Exhibition.

 

Facilities management is a dynamic industry, constantly evolving to ensure it remains relevant and in tune with the changing needs of building occupiers and those who want to ensure they maximise the value of their space. 

The theme for the 2016 conference, "Leading the change", clearly articulates the constant need for the industry to proactively approach the many challenges we face from both within the industry and from without, including advances in technology, changes to legislation and shifts in community expectations. As valued members of the facilities management community, our sponsors and exhibition have once again formed an integral part of this conference.
