Global FM has announced that Wednesday 13 July is to be the date for World FM Day 2016.
The global facilities management association, which operates the day through its World FM Day task force, has also revealed that the theme for the day is to be "empowering people for a productive world".
Duncan Waddell, chairman of Global FM, said: "FM is all about enablement; as a sector we enable people to work, we enable the economy, we enable technology, we enable social interaction - the list is endless. At the crux of all of this is people - and for this year's World FM Day we aim to highlight how we, as FM professionals, empower people to reach their full potential and in turn create a productive world."
FM professionals are encouraged to host events to celebrate the FM profession throughout the week 11-15 July.
Global FM members including the BIFM, the European Facility Management Network (EuroFM), the International Facility Management Association (IFMA), and the Associação Brasileira de Facilities (ABRAFAC) are to lead events in July.
Winners in the Global FM Awards of Excellence will also be revealed on World FM Day. Last year's platinum winner was the BIFM's 'JLL Property and Asset Management Academy' submission.
