More than 100 Corporate Directors of Sustainability, Continuous Improvement, Supply Chain, Engineering and Facilities from Fortune companies across North America came to FMA Summits Future Facilities Summit in Dallas, Texas on October 17th & 18th, 2017. They shared a common purpose: to evaluate their best options for intelligent building and facilities management.
What they got in addition was a detailed look at state-of-the-art technology in building automation, energy storage, cyber security, microgrid technology, lighting systems, and renewable energy solutions for high-performance facilities. Plus the incalculable benefit of new or solidified business relationships with solutions providers at leading companies like PowerSecure, Cleaver-Brooks, Sloan, Honeywell, GE, LG, Martin Energy Group, Kimberly Clark and Thermal Energy.
Bringing together the right people and the right companies under one roof is the hallmark of Montreal-based FMA Summits. In just two days of informative presentations, live product demos and informal, one-on-one discussions between solution providers, a national retailer identified potential partners to work synergistically in the overhaul of its more than 1,000 showrooms. An operator of a chain of group homes for severely disabled adults discovered cost-effective construction solutions to improve the comfort and safety of its residents. All participants gained new relationships they can leverage in their endeavors to increase operational efficiency, reduce energy costs and improve building resiliency.
Steven Alves, Director of Maintenance and Facilities from Del Valle Independent School District said “the communication from presenters and fellow attendees was outstanding. I arrived with 3 concerns for Del Valle and through the presentations and discussions I have left the conference with 3 plans for the concerns. This has been a very productive conference.”
It was Ron Merritt’s, AVP Corporate Facility Management at Harland Clarke Holdings first FMA Summit and he found it to be informative and beneficial. “I was able to meet several business reps who may be able to support our business in the future. The facility leadership presentation given by Kurtis Jetsel was exceptional.”
Mark Martyak, Chief Sales Officer from PowerSecure and first time Sponsor for FMA was impressed in that everything about the FMA conference from the quality of attendees to the venue was first class. He said “the quality of conversations were really good in that FMA set us up with customers who had already expressed an interest in us. The attendees were all high level decision makers. Very impressed and will be back!”
“We have sponsored 6 FMA Summits” said Dave Coletta Director of Corporate Accounts from Thermal Energy “and the reason we keep coming back is because we’ve had success in meeting the right types of people. We focus on meeting with Directors of Facilities and Sustainability and we found that FMA delivers that.”
