Ready to Roll in March: NFMT and IFMA Facility Fusion

David Trask| February 27, 2018

March is set to be a busy month for facility management conferences. Both the International Facilities Management Association (IFMA) and National Facilities Management and Technology (NFMT)—two of the largest professional associations for facility management—will be hosting expos during the same week (March 20-22) in Chicago and Baltimore, respectively.

We are sending teams to both events and are getting amped up about meeting many of you, sharing what’s new with us and seeing what’s new out there for the modern facility professional!
