IFMA Global Conference: Pioneering a new era in facility management


In the heart of Accra, Ghana, a gathering is set to take place that promises to redefine how workplaces across Africa are managed and perceived.

The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) is gearing up to host its Global Conference on August 1-2, 2024, at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA).

This event isn’t just a meeting of minds; it’s a pivotal moment for facility management (FM) professionals, industry leaders, and innovators from around the world to converge and explore the future of their field.

Imagine stepping into a vibrant space buzzing with conversations between FM experts, industry pioneers, and forward-thinking innovators. Their goal? To delve deep into the ways FM can enhance productivity and well-being in workplaces throughout Africa.

At the core of this event are the keynote speakers—seasoned professionals and thought leaders—who will share their insights on the latest trends and challenges in FM. Discussions will span sustainable practices, the integration of smart technologies in building management, and strategies to ensure workplace health and safety. These discussions aren’t just theoretical; they’re practical insights that can reshape how workplaces are designed and managed.

What distinguishes this conference is its emphasis on Africa’s unique context. With rapid urbanization and the burgeoning development of new infrastructure, the demand for efficient, sustainable, and safe workplaces has never been more urgent. The IFMA Global Conference aims to ignite a renewed passion for FM, demonstrating its potential to drive economic growth while fostering environments that support employee well-being.

Networking is a cornerstone of the conference experience. Imagine the opportunity to connect with peers, mentors, and potential collaborators—exchanging ideas, forging partnerships, and laying the groundwork for future collaborations. It’s not just about learning; it’s about building a community committed to advancing FM practices across the continent and beyond.

The theme, “The Impact of Facility Management on Employee Productivity and Well-being in the African Workplace,” encapsulates the conference’s core focus. It underscores the vital role of FM in creating environments where employees can thrive, not just survive.

As the conference approaches, anticipation grows for what promises to be a transformative gathering.
