These are just some of the topics being addressed by speakers at this year’s Total Facilities as they focus on the top issues facing the facilities management industry now and into the future.

With the likes of Hendry Group, FSI, Daelibs and Buddy Platform exhibiting at Total Facilities, the new ‘Smart Zone’ will be a thriving hub of technological innovation which presents new technologies and solutions to help create smarter, greener buildings.
