31 Mar National Facilities Management & Technology Conference/Exposition 2016
Jim Turner presented at NFMT 2016 in Baltimore. After presenting several topics at NFMT since 2007, Jim gave an new talk in 2016, called “An Overview of FM Technology.” With an audience of over 180 attendees, the presentation covered eight essential technologies that Facilities Managers are using right now in the field, provided an overview of the features and benefits of FM Technology, and outlined an approach for creating a road-map for justifying FM Technology at your organization. The standing room crowd was engaged, asking questions and sharing anecdotes about their own experiences with FM Technology at the end of the presentation.
NFMT 2016 was also attended by Leigh Valudes, Scotte MacQueen, and Ray Carney. Ray’s favorite booth was Varidesk. Markon recently test-drove their product and found it quite useful. The team spent a great deal of time learning about LED lighting, “Internet of Things” (IOT) technology applications for facility management, and many new and innovative products. Scotte took advantage of the Expo to seek out and find trending waterproofing product information to support an existing client. Both Scotte and Jim were pleased to see that several former graduate students of theirs were not only attending conference sessions, but also were expo participants.
