Tickets for the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management's (IWFM) 2021 national conference are now on sale.
The event, the third since IWFM rebranded from BIFM in 2018, will take place on Monday 13 September in central London. The event will be themed 'Emerging Stronger' with an emphasis on hybrid working.
It will have a multi-layered programme, with world-class speakers on familiar megatrends, including the future of work, climate action and technology, which will be complemented by practitioner experts to explore best practice and extract practical takeaways.
The IWFM Conference 2021 will be headlined this year by comedian and writer Deborah Frances-White, aka The Guilty Feminist, and historian, film-maker and polymath David Olusoga OBE, whom IWFM’s director of insight and engagement Chris Moriarty calls "true tone-setters for our times, boldly and brilliantly bookending our exciting agenda".
Moriarty added: "Whether you’re ready for the city or your comfort zone is the screen, we’re poised to immerse you in a brilliantly curated programme of razor-sharp insight, sideways humour and practical know-how.
“2020 was a watershed year. Turbulence and uncertainty remain, but there is a clear consensus to build back better. The pandemic experience has fast-forwarded trends and disrupted established norms in a whole raft of areas that touch our profession and our professionalism. It’s time to assess, learn and channel that experience to shape our new stronger future."
Delegates opting for the digital experience will be able to access the conference from anywhere in the world. They will be able to tune in live to talks from the event’s megatrend keynotes, plus supporting practical sessions. Watching live attendees will be able to put their questions to speakers and network with other delegates in the virtual conference. All sessions will be recorded and available on catch-up.
