NFMT Remix Returns to Las Vegas this Fall
After a successful return to Baltimore this past March, the NFMT trade show is ready to win big in Las Vegas. NFMT Remix is returning to “Sin City” Nov. 2-3 at the Paris Las Vegas Resort Conference Center.
It's been four years since the National Facilities Management & Technology (NFMT) Conference and Expo was held in Las Vegas due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, industry professionals are excited to attend in-person events once again.
"It's a great show. We've met a lot of great exhibitors and the classes are really good," said one attendee at the Baltimore show.
Now, NFMT is bringing that same excitement to the Las Vegas Strip.
“After a four-year pause, we’ve got a packed agenda planned for this fall,” says Jill McDermott, CEO of Trade Press Media Group, the parent company of NFMT. “Everything our attendees and exhibitors have come to love about NFMT events, will be back and better than before at Remix in Vegas.”
Attendees can choose from three registration options: Basic, Pro and Elite.
The Basic level is free and includes entry to the expo hall and happy hour. In the hall, attendees can see the latest products from more than 100 exhibitors. Basic level attendees can also access the Product Zone Sessions held in the expo hall. These 20-minute sessions focus on innovative technology and trends to help facility managers solve their current and future issues.
The networking happy hour takes place on Wednesday, Nov. 2 in the expo hall. Attendees can network with their peers and visit exhibitor booths all the while eating delicious food and enjoying beer, wine or cocktails.
After the happy hour, all attendees can join the Women in FM Roundtable and networking party. Female facility managers will share their stories, lessons learns and give advice to fellow women in the industry. This interactive, inspiring session will allow both men and women to evaluate their leadership style and appraise their career path.
The Pro Level costs $29 and in addition to the expo hall and happy hour, it grants full access to the conference agenda. NFMT events are known for their high-quality educational seminars. This year there are six tracks focusing on key areas of energy, technology, safety, leadership, maintenance and operational efficiency. Some of the 60-minute sessions focus on the hybrid workplace, capital planning, resiliency, fire safety, ADA, indoor air quality and much more.
Pro Level attendees also receive a tote bag, lunch coupons and the ability to earn continuing education units (CEUs) at the event.
The third and final level, Elite, costs $149 and gets attendees everything in the Basic and Pro Levels, but also premium benefits, including access to a facility tour, a complimentary 6-month fnPrime membership and the ability to watch NFMT Remix videos on demand after the show.
Elite attendees will get the chance to go behind the scenes of the famous Bellagio Fountains. Multiple times a day, more than a thousand fountains spray water that “dances” to popular songs. The water, music and light show spans more than 1,000 feet with water shooting nearly 500 feet into the air. On Nov. 2, Arnold Cabrera, engineer at the Bellagio, will guide attendees through the “Batcave” where the maintenance shop is located for the lake and lake equipment. Cabrera will explain how the equipment works and, most importantly, how it is maintained.
Elite attendees also have access to conference Think Tanks. These 60-minute informal discussions are focused around either a specific building type or trend, allowing attendees to network with their peers in a small group environment. Instead of a formal presentation, attendees are encouraged to simply pull up a chair and ask their questions to like-minded facility managers from around the country. Each roundtable will have an official moderator to help guide the conversation.
Finally, attendees who register at the Elite level are enrolled in the fnPrime membership program to continue their education after the show. Members can visit www.facilitiesnet.com/fnPrime to watch conference videos of sessions they may have missed, see content from past NFMT events, read exclusive ebooks and participate in monthly virtual networking opportunities.
After a pandemic-fueled hiatus, NFMT events are back. With quality education, fun networking, and the latest products in the expo hall, attendees will find everything they need to successfully manage their facilities and grow their careers at Remix.
“There’s a true buzz within the industry for NFMT’s return to the Vegas Strip. No matter what products and services you’re seeking for your facility, you’ll find it at NFMT Remix,” says McDermott.
