Opportunities of Sustainability

Sustainability – is this somewhat inflated term still relevant nowadays? Was it a luxury we could afford yesterday, abandoning it in a moment of crisis, or has there been little room for it until now, since we have been blindly following growth, consolidating now at a sustainable level? Or do only those who place emphasis on economic sustainability in time survive future tumultuous times? It is incontestable that due to its great impact on the environment the domain of real estate plays a decisive role within today’s  sustainable development which concerns all the phases of building life cycles.

With this year’s Congress focusing on “Opportunities for Sustainability” we aim to show the relevance and contribution of Facility & Real Estate Management in the context of sustainability. International professionals and scientists will introduce their latest research findings and present details of their practical projects. Participants will have the opportunity to apply new approaches and gain insight into the handling of the changing demands on sustainability. This year sees the 12th International Facility Management and Real Estate Congress take place in Kufstein. We are proud to have established the leading international FM-Congress in Austria. Over 2300 participants representing 18 nations including more than 200 speakers have been involved in the previous 11 Congresses. On behalf of the degree programs we would like to thank all our sponsors and partners who enable us to conduct this Congress. We wish you an enjoyable and stimulating three days in Kufstein.
