Make It Count: New Networking Opportunities at
The Facilities Event
W
ith only a few days until The
Facilities Event 2018 (10th –
12th
April
2018,
NEC
Birmingham), opens its doors to the
industry, organiser Western Business
Exhibitions announces partnerships
with FM North and The Hill Club to
bring new networking opportunities
to the event.
FM North, the Facility Management
Professional Networking Association for
FM professionals based in the North of
England, is set to host an official
networking hour every day of the show
in both the VIP Area and Catering Zone.
Ian Perton, Managing Director of FM
North said: “As the chameleon of the
corporate world, FMs are talking to
multiple departments, suppliers and
contacts every single day, so
interpersonal and communication skills
are crucial. Getting out and networking
with new people is so important in this
industry, particularly as we’re all so busy
most of the time. FM North is thrilled to
partner with The Facilities Event to
facilitate a space where you can drop in,
6
make new contacts and ultimately do
good business.”
Dubbed the ‘Masters of Mixing Pleasure
with Business’, The Hill Club will host an
exclusive networking event on the
opening day of the event.
Phil Smith, Chairman of The Hill Club
said: “It doesn’t matter which industry
you come from, people will always buy
from people. We can all produce
fantastic glossy brochures and emblazon
our stands with smart slogans, but
ultimately, good business is done when
we nurture relationships and have faceto-face time. By combining the
networking you’ll do on supplier stands,
with The Hill Club event on opening day,
you’ll
build
stronger
business
relationships with both new and existing
contacts. Who knows how many new
doors will open for you!”
Drawing
over
5,000
industry
professionals each year, The Facilities
Event delivers a powerful combination of
senior decision makers and purchase
influencers from across the UK's
industrial, commercial and public sectors.
With a compelling range of unique
educational content available to the
visitor and a wide and varied exhibitor
offering, this is the "must attend" event
for all facilities professionals.
Tim Else, Event Director, The Facilities
Event said: “We have partnered with
networking gurus to provide visitors and
suppliers with some truly dedicated
interaction time whilst at the show.
Facilitated networking time is so
important at live events, or before you
know it, your day is gone, and you’ve
not spoken to anyone on your list.
Come see FM North and The Hill Club,
invite your contacts and make that hour
count each day.”
