Speaking at the maiden launch of World of Facilities 2017Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India said“A combination of several factors has created a huge potential for FM services in India. These include the boom in real estate, growth in retail and hospitality sectors, modernisation of technology, increased standards of living, and the need for efficient management of vast and ever increasing human traffic at malls, hospitals, airports and workplace clusters. The industry is expected to reach a value of approximately $19.4 billion by 2020.  Simultaneously, the tendency towards eco-friendly, green initiatives -- that will help conserve energy and resources for the future -- have also led to an increased sensitisation towards facility management services.

He added, “As innovators and community influencers, UBM India felt it was the right time to present the maiden edition of World of Facilities to India and showcase top-of-the-line, novel and the most eco-friendly products on offer. I am sure the World of Facilities will further catalyse the growth of this sector and its conferences will provide relevant food for thought to industry professionals.”

It has grown by around 15% in the last three years. The projections are that it will continue to grow at the same pace through 2020. It is at this opportune time that JLL as knowledge partner has joined hands with UBM India to launch World of Facilities. This is going to be India’s premier and most comprehensive B2B platform for the facility management industry.  The show comprises two formats – expo and conference. The event catered to many local and global suppliers, manufacturers, consultants, service providers, along with thousands of people participating from different verticals. All participating organisations will benefit from the extensive learning and showcasing of latest initiatives by the facilities management industry.
