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.

World FM Day 2017 - Wednesday 17 May

Enabling positive experiences


In 2017 the theme for World FM Day is enabling positive experiences and will will look at how facilities management (FM) enables different business disciplines to collaborate to deliver high quality business and customer performance.


Duncan Waddell, Chairman of Global FM, said: “The 2017 theme emphasises facilities management’s significant role in setting and managing the scene for and delivering exceptional customer experiences worldwide across multiple sectors. The breadth of sectors impacted by FM is everywhere and there are examples in travel and tourism, residential, entertainment, leisure, health, education and commerce, as well as the wider workplace.


“The often unforeseen and disruptive forces in today’s world must be anticipated and managed to ensure stability and success in whatever sectors people seek the deliverables of the FM and their teams to ensure that outcomes and outputs of facilities meet expectations to enhance life whether it is at work, rest or play.”
