The Expo

In managing facilities, teams and projects, we have to be prepared for anything. Finding products and services that can equip us to handle workplace snags, jams or nitty-gritties is an important part of our FM strategy.

Get to know the products; get to know the vendors.

The World Workplace expo is geared toward learning and relationship-building. See hundreds of FM toys, tools and resources from the leading names in FM solutions. Product demonstrations, informational sessions and one-on-ones with exhibitors will help you make the best buying decisions for your facility.
