The Leading News & Information Service For The Facilities, Workplace & Built Environment Community

Facilities & Workplace Networking Club founded the Facilities & Workplace Networking Club over six years ago, exclusively for Facilities, Workplace & related professionals drawn from a broad cross-section of organisations and disciplines.

The Facilities & Workplace Networking Club host a number of events every year exclusively for its members, their business partners and their clients.....and the best bit - membership is completely free!

Members of the Facilities & Workplace Networking Club meet in Central London every two months for a casual and informal evening, aimed at providing a comfortable environment for business people in the industry (or associated with it) to connect, discuss current topics, share ideas and build mutually beneficial commercial relationships. See a previous attendee list here.

The Club also hosts significant events for the FM and Workplace Industry, in particular a Black Tie Boxing Dinner, a Summer Boat Party and a Christmas Extravaganza. These are not to be missed!

"Last month was my first time at this event and it was excellent. The venue is very professional as are the attendees.
This networking event is attracting a very high level of decision makers in the FM industry and is a 'must attend'
for those wishing to develop relationships, market understanding and obtain new business.
