After a three year hiatus due to the pandemic, the World Federation of Building Service Contractors tells us it’s excited to host its Global Executive Summit, 14th – 15th March 2023, in London, England, in conjunction with the London Cleaning Show.
Designed exclusively for CEOs, COOs, owners and senior leadership within contract cleaning and facilities services companies, GES 2023 will provide insights, training and networking, as well as access to leading vendors showcasing the latest technology at the London Cleaning Show.
"The 2023 event is designed to meet the unique needs of executive leaders in global BSC firms," says Doug Cooke, 2023 GES chair and chairman of UK-based Principle Cleaning Services. "The format, speaker selection and session types all deliberately allow for maximum impact and engagement amongst attendees."
GES 2023 features one day of sessions covering topics including Executive Leadership, Industry Transition, ESG/Sustainability, and Labour Challenges specific to the building service contracting industry. The format of the program will be a mix of lectures, case study exercises, panels and networking events featuring experts, academics, industry CEOs and customer perspectives.
