Join hundreds of key players in the building and facilities management sector for the most innovative, progressive and unmissable event in the entire building industry calendar to take part in the key discussions needed, and to hear international and national speakers address the big issues.

Corralled again by the awesome Pio Terei, our speakers will provoke a range of forward-thinking discussions across sustainability, digital transformation, the economic impact of FM, leadership and much more in an exciting and wide-ranging two-day programme.

Sneak preview: Mark Sorenson, multi-world title-winning captain of the Black Sox and giant of New Zealand softball, is our opening speaker on day one; Lena Parker, General Manager of Ventia’s energy solutions business, is joining us on day two to explain how you can leverage your assets to generate energy, lower your costs, and grow your business; and independent economist Tony Alexander is back by popular demand on day two with his entertaining and expert economic update.

Register before 8 August to save with our early bird discount and we’ll see you in Christchurch on 20-21 September! Note: We’re planning an afternoon behind-the-scenes tour of Te Pae on 19 September, followed by pre-Summit drinks so factor this into travel arrangements if you’d like to join us for either or both of these.

We know training budgets are tight in some organisations so we’ve put together a template letter to help you explain to your manager why attending FM Summit is a wise investment.

Our whakatauki

This year we’ve chosen a whakatauki to build our programme around – He iti hau marangai e tū te pāhokahoka – Like rainbows after a storm, success follows when we embrace the changing world, leaving business as usual behind.

The last three years have seen enormous shifts and disruption. Workplaces have changed, priorities have changed, the climate has changed. On the frontline of these changes lie our buildings and facilities; and many of the solutions to the challenges we face lie here too – from improved well-being to driving down carbon pollution.

We know we won’t succeed in meeting these challenges by attempting to go back to business as usual, which is why we’re championing a shift in how we think about and approach FM at this year’s Summit. We’re asking our speakers to provoke and stimulate ideas around the challenges and changes facilities managers face and provide innovative and forward-thinking solutions to inspire us to embrace change, think outside the box and drive progress in FM. To embrace the rainbow after the storm.
