San Antonio, Philadelphia to Host World Workplace 2012, 2013
World Workplace Conference & Expo is headed to the Alamo City and City of Brotherly Love in 2012 and 2013, respectively. As the annual conference of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA), World Workplace brings industry leaders from business and government together with educators and exhibitors to analyze the trends and new products impacting today’s built environment.
The event attracts attendees from across the globe and from industries including facility and property management, real estate, engineering, security, design, architecture, and more.
“World Workplace not only brings in thousands of attendees and an influx of new ideas to the cities that host the conference, but it also provides them with a robust economic impact,” said IFMA President and CEO Tony Keane, CAE.
World Workplace features keynote speaker and educational session presentations; Sustainability Central, an exclusive section of the expo floor reserved for companies offering environmentally friendly products and services; and instructor-led courses for professionals seeking any of IFMA’s three credentials — the Certified Facility Manager®, Facility Management Professional, or Sustainability Facility Professional™ designations.
San Antonio, the nation’s seventh largest city, will welcome World Workplace later this year when the conference comes to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center October 31 to November 2. The event will feature facility tours of some of San Antonio’s finest attractions, including the Alamo, the Pearl, Rackspace Headquarters, the Gonzalez Convention Center, and more.
The Pennsylvania Convention Center will play host to World Workplace 2013 when the conference comes to the nation’s fifth largest city, Philadelphia, October 2 to 4, 2013. Details about facility tours and other Philadelphia events are forthcoming.
“As Philadelphia continues to work toward becoming the greenest city in the country through our Greenworks Philadelphia program, the city is pleased to welcome World Workplace attendees who share this commitment to sustainability. Smart facility management can play an important role in helping to create healthier, more efficient buildings and communities,” said Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter.
