Overview

Once again, FM Ireland delivered a total audience of over 1500 attendees across the 2 days of the event.

The attendance pattern was similar to previous years with a similar number attending each of the open days, however with repeat attendees from day 1 to day 2, the second day felt busier.

Feedback received from exhibitors during the event, was that they were extremely impressed with the quality of attendees delivered and that those attending were focused and actively seeking solutions.

The Networking reception, which was open to visitors, speakers and exhibitors attracted between 120 – 150 attendees was a success. With a number of comments from both exhibitors, speakers and attendees that the opportunity to relax and discuss the day was welcomed… As was the drink and light snacks.

Many repeat exhibitors, commented that this year’s event had delivered a greater number of senior level decision makers from leading organisations, compared to previous years, and that the opportunity to meet these people in person would not have occurred, if they had not been exhibiting.

“This has been one of, if not the best event I have ever attended, just quality visitors… I even closed a sale on my stand, which rarely happens” Paul Geoghegan, MD, Xetec

A visitor and exhibitor survey will be conducted in the coming month, however anecdotally visitors were pleased with the scope of exhibitors and conference content delivered, stating that it was their intention to visit again in 2018.

The Conference

FM Ireland once again worked with our supporting Association/Organisations to identify and deliver relevant content addressing the various aspects involved in FM, Health & Safety, Fire Safety, Security and Buildings Maintenance and operations.

The importance of these sessions to the delivery of quality attendees should be recognized, as many had planned the timing and length of stay to allow them to hear particular talks/sessions.

Attendance to these conferences was affected by the topic addressed and ranged from 76 – 35 people for some of the Health & Safety Talks, 25 – 35 people for Fire safety, 35 – 15 people for FM sessions and 20 – a disappointing 2 people for a couple of the security focused talks.
