After the success in 2019, the Facilities Management conference will take place for a second time as part of Middle East Cleaning Technology Week 2021. Stay tuned for the 2021 conference programme.

It’s great to see an event like this take place where we are celebrating cleaning, facilities management and different technologies. It’s important to visit to get an appreciation of what’s going on. The sessions give people an opportunity to learn from the leaders of our industry as to what’s actually happening, where the market is going and what skills do I need that are relevant for my organisation.
