Live facility management events are back!

July 26, 2021
5 regional Facilities Expos are scheduled for this summer and fall.

No more Zoom meetings!

After a seemingly endless period of lockdowns, online video conferences, and a lack of person-to-person contact, the nation’s school administrators and architects can address their professional educational needs and gain exposure to the latest products and industry trends through the return of live events.

A series of five live regional events ― the Facilities and Managing Green Buildings Expos, or Facilities Expos for short ― are a valuable and relevant exhibition for the facilities, maintenance, energy, and operations management personnel of academic institutions. For 2021, the Facilities Expos will set up shop from August through October in California, Oregon, and Texas.

These events, like most events in 2020 and early 2021, have been held virtually. But as of this summer, they are back in their usual Convention Center venues. Those who work in the education sector can register for free attendance to experience the Facilities Expos firsthand. The main components driving the expos are a solution-filled hall consisting of the latest products and services, high-interest educational conferences, and dedicated networking lounges.

The tagline for the 2021 expos, “Where Facility Challenges Find Solutions,” sums up the events. Depending on the location, 70 to 150 different exhibitors will be ready to display their regional solutions, new products, and latest technologies. The product and service offerings touch upon all areas of the facility industry ― HVAC, lighting, predictive maintenance, roofing, energy management, electrical systems, safety, fluid handling, renewable energy, and environmental regulations, to name a few.

Aside from the benefits of the exhibitor hall, attendees also can receive Certificates of Attendance, upon request, for attending the conference seminar sessions that can be used to accumulate CEU (Continuing Education Unit) credits.

“There is nothing like the Facilities Expo," says Lisa Nagle, Group Show Director. "Here attendees can learn the latest trends, shop for solutions, and reconnect with those in the industry. We’re so excited to mark our return as the only combined Facilities, MRO, and Green Buildings trade show this summer and fall."

One of the issues that the expos plan to address during their two-day conferences is how to deal with the building environment in a post-Covid world. How do school administrators get their sites back to normal? What is energy and environmental management like now? How have maintenance and construction projects changed? Other sessions include A Look at Arlington Independent School District’s Outstanding Energy Management Program, Covid Disinfection Guidance, and Verifying That Your Buildings Have Good Indoor Air Quality.

Now, more than ever, it is important to reconnect with those in the industry and listen to experts on how to reinvent and rebuild facilities in a post-pandemic world, and the Facilities Expos offers all the tools to achieve this.
