Dear friends and colleagues,
After the success of the 2nd Malaysia-Europe Facilities Management Conference in 2015, Building Surveying Department, Faculty of Built Environment, University of Malaya (UM) in partnership with Maxwell CFM International will hold the 3rd Malaysia-Europe Facilities Management Conference 2017 (MyEFM2017). The organiser has selected Pullman Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Bangsar, as a venue, which I believed that the organiser have chosen a venue that guarantees a successful technical conference amid the culture and scenery of Kuala Lumpur. We cordially invite you to participate in MyEFM2017, which will be held on September 26th, 2017.
It is generally agreed that FM sector is among the most complex tasks in business and building industries. The 3rd MyEFM2017 highlights life-cycle consideration into strategic thinking of infrastructure asset and facilities operations. These programmes are aimed at creating awareness and at providing access to information and capacity building of countries towards the importance and relevance of Facility Resilience in Circular Economy. This conference also will encourage international collaboration and best practices of FM by providing a platform to share views and experiences, learn the current state of the art and find effective solutions to problems of common interests.
We are going to invite a keynote and six (6) speakers from both academia and industry, who will give presentations on the best practices of life-cycle in FM. Among them is the Chairman of ISO/TC/267-Facility Management. In addition, there will be local speakers from across the industry. Some of the topics discuss including design life of constructed facility, resource efficiency and goals for business. This brings a plurality of interests and perspectives within FM life-cycle concept to a single location. We also expect this to provide numerous opportunities for informal networking.
It has been a great privilege for me to serve as Organising Chair of MyEFM2017 Conference and it is my hope that you will find the conference stimulating, fulfilling and enjoyable. We look forward to seeing you in Kuala Lumpur.
Professor Azlan Shah Ali
