What to expect

Supplier Exhibition

Our annual supplier exhibition, one of the largest in Scotland, will be bigger and better than ever, and there will be a wide range of suppliers there to showcase their future-proofed products.

Seminars

Our seminars have a mix of educational, motivational and hard-hitting speakers who have been handpicked for their relevance in the Facilities Management Industry and to this year’s conference theme, led by National Chair, Chris Ross.

Gala Dinner

The Gala Dinner and Annual Awards are a celebration of our industry and the people who work for and with our local authorities.

A BETTER TOMORROW

This year’s theme is all about sustainability. Sustainable development is how we must live today if we want a better tomorrow. This year we are focusing on what we can do as individuals within our industry to create a more ethical future for ourselves and the next generation.

Over the course of the 2 days, you will learn all about sustainability issues in your sector and leave armed with inspiration and knowledge on how you can create a more ethical future for your role and your business. We have gone 100% paper-free this year and have made a number of improvements to our Supplier and Partner guidelines for supporting sustainability at this year’s exhibition. We are reusing, recycling and aiming for a significantly lower food waste figure from previous conferences.

What Do Our Suppliers Think?

We had such an incredible time at the ASSIST FM conference. It was a key opportunity for us to promote our School Plates programme in Scotland and THE place to network and be informed on current issues facing local authorities in Scotland.”
Pollie Higginson - ProVeg
ASSIST FM is one of our favorite conferences to be part of; nothing beats the warm friendly welcome you get from all the members and there’s a huge sense of occasion when our industry comes together to celebrate.
Unilever
The conference programme was excellent and all the speakers were informative and thought-provoking, worth taking two days away from a busy work schedule.
