IFMA is now accepting submissions to Facility Fusion, held March 23-25, 2011, at the Westin – Boston Waterfront in Boston, MA. The Call for Presentations is open until September 8, 2010 (NEW DEADLINE).

The objective of the 2011 educational experience is to offer high-level FM education that has NOT been duplicated in the marketplace. All abstract submissions must be new and never before presented prior to Facility Fusion. (Note: In the event that IFMA discovers a selected session is scheduled to be presented prior to Facility Fusion, March 23-25, 2011, the session will be canceled.)

Quick Guide for Submissions:

  • Please pre-determine which of the seven (7) Facility Fusion educational tracks best represents your session.
  • Type your information in a Word document prior to completing the online application.
  • Proofread your application before submitting. Spelling or grammatical errors could lose you points in the Quality category.
  • The Call for Presentations form must be filled out completely.
  • Complete all speaker information fields, even if you have presented at another IFMA event in the past.
  • The learning objectives should describe exactly what attendees will learn. Outline the “take-away” information attendees can apply upon their return to work.
  • All abstract submitters will be notified via e-mail. If your abstract is accepted, you will receive a Limited Speaker Event Registration.

Applications must be received through the event website (no e-mails accepted) by August 31. Detailed information regarding the application process is available on the site.
