Mark Your ibtm world Calender Now for the 2017 Edition of AIPC's Facility Operations Summit |
The 10th AIPC Facility Operations Summit will be held on November 26 and 27, 2017 and this is the one event anyone with a role or a stake in this critical area of centre management can’t miss out on. It is a rare opportunity for centre staff responsible for key operations functions to share issues and solutions on a global basis while also looking at how essential interactions amongst centre managers can be enhanced in ways that will increase overall centre efficiency and competitiveness.
The 2016 theme | Delivering Success: Adding the WOW Factor to Event Delivery!
It takes close collaboration amongst the entire client service team to ensure they best assist clients and participants in achieving a successful event. Today, centre managers are also responsible for dealing with the ever increasing complexities in everything from new event formats and technologies to rapidly changing business practices.
This year’s Facility Operations Summit will provide attendees with a roadmap for service delivery that addresses a range of topics around how both building management and event management can support the overall sales process for a truly integrated effort.
