World FM Day is a collaboration between the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) and Global FM. Global FM member organizations on six different continents will celebrate World FM Day by organizing events such as luncheons, seminars and workshops, or by undertaking any other activity to celebrate and promote facility management. The event aims to raise the FM profession profile around the globe—promoting facility management's ideals worldwide, not only within the profession and industry, but also among the governments and the general public.
