An array of regional and national speakers will present the latest concepts in facility management at the inaugural Facilities Midwest Expo Conference & Expo, taking place Sept. 19 and 20 in Rosemont, Ill.
“Facilities Midwest offers attendees the opportunity to learn about national facility trends and evaluate how they will affect properties in the Midwest,” says Wendy Loerch, director of education for the event. “What’s more, the range of topics — from energy to wireless technologies to career development — provides a comprehensive educational menu for all levels of facility professionals.”
Building owners, facility managers and maintenance decision makers will have the opportunity to meet directly with experts on specific topics that affect the facilities management industry in the Midwest at Solutions Exchange — a recently-announced round-robin style networking session that will be held at Facilities Midwest Expo from 7:45 a.m. to 8:50 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 20.
Solutions Exchange will offer decision makers the opportunity to network, share experiences and trouble shoot specific facilities management issues with their peers. The discussions will be led by experts who will facilitate the idea exchange on industry topics including HVAC performance benchmarks, security system integration, water conservation, energy services and more. Participants can take part in up to three different discussions, each 20 minutes long.
“We’re excited to bring this innovative educational format to the Facilities Midwest show,” said Wendy Loerch, director of education for Facilities Midwest. “Our attendees will have unparalleled access to information that can help make an immediate difference in the operation and efficiency of their facilities.”
