Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we have unfortunately had to take the decision to postpone our 20th annual ASSIST FM Conference. We’ll be back next, from the 26-27th August, with our full conference and supplier exhibition which has become the premier event for FM Suppliers in the 32 Scottish Local Authorities.
Further information about our 2021 conference will be announced in due course and in the meantime our ASSIST FM committee is working hard to keep our members informed about how the Facilities Management sector is being impacted by the virus.
We have held webinars for our Local Authority members and our suppliers, and will aim to host further online events as we receive more information from our colleagues in the Scottish Government and public sector organisations. Information about any future ASSIST FM events will be circulated with our members and suppliers when the details have been finalised.
Due to the pandemic, we have also put our National Awards and Scottish School Cook of the Year competition on hold until further notice, but we will be looking to celebrate our staff who have been so vital in ensuring that our most vulnerable and shielding pupils are still benefiting from our service at our future events.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions both about the ASSIST FM Conference or about how the pandemic is impacting our sector. We hope to see you at one of our future events, both online and offline, and look forward to working together with you to get through this uncertain time.
