World FM Day - Going global with FM

What is World FM Day?

World FM day aims to raise the global profile of the facilities management profession.

From the largest office tower to industrial parks, from sporting facilities to residential buildings, the FM profession touches nearly everyone, everywhere in some way. In 2010, Global FM instigated World FM Day to recognise this and to promote the vital work of FMs and the industry around the globe.

World FM Day is a time when FM professionals take a moment to reflect on their past achievements while many embrace the opportunity to connect with other FMs in celebration.

It is also the day that the Global FM Awards are announced.

World FM Day is a day to share experiences, to promote our profession and, most importantly, to celebrate our successes.

Wednesday 13 July 2016

Global FM, the Global Facility Management Association, has announced Wednesday 13 July as the date for ‘World FM Day’ 2016. The theme will be ‘Empowering people for a productive world’, and will look at how facilities management enables different business disciplines to collaborate to deliver high quality business performance.

Once a year the global facilities management community comes together to celebrate FM on World FM Day .

Duncan Waddell, Chairman of Global FM, said “FM is all about enablement; as a sector we enable people to work, we enable the economy, we enable technology, we enable social interaction – the list is endless. At the crux of all of this is people – and for this year’s World FM Day we aim to highlight how we, as FM professionals, empower people to reach their full potential and in turn create a productive world”.


World FM Day is instigated by Global FM to recognise the vital work that facilities management professionals and the facilities management industry contributes to business worldwide. It aims to raise the profile of the FM profession, not just in member regions, but anywhere FMs influence the health, safety, productivity and well-being of people who utilise the built environment.


World FM Day provides an opportunity for global knowledge sharing, to discuss and share experiences both good and challenging, to promote our profession and celebrate our successes.

It is a day where facilities management professionals use to reflect on their achievements over the past year.
