Submit An Abstract Proposal


The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) invites industry professionals like you to share your knowledge and business expertise. You are invited to submit a session proposal for presentation at Facility Fusion 2020 Conference & Expo, to be held at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square, April 14-16, 2020, San Francisco, California (USA).

 **DEADLINE: THE CALL WILL CLOSE AT 11:59 P.M., CST on September 2, 2019. Presentations will NOT be accepted after this time. 

The premise of the Facility Fusion educational experience is to offer leading FM education that has NOT been duplicated in the marketplace. Program submittals should address change management, cutting-edge trends, the future of the workplace and other forward thinking concepts. Successful submittals will be new (have not been presented prior to Facility Fusion 2020). In the event that IFMA finds a selected session scheduled to be presented prior to Facility Fusion 2020, the session WILL be canceled.
