Featured sessions

  • Opening Keynote - Towards Energy Buddhism: When Everything is Connected with Everything presented by Arash Aazami: [1 June, 13:10-14:00] - Energy is commonly regarded as a low-interest product, until it’s not there. We can only live in balance with our planet when we use 1 million times less fossil energies. Like internet, digitalization will fundamentally change every energy game ever played. “I never looked at energy this way, this talk really changed my view” is a common reaction after hearing this talk by Arash, during which you will get an insight in the current state of energy. Arash surprises with inspirations from nature and his work with artists in defining the design principles for his companies’ technological innovations. He surprises with perspectives on technology, markets, geopolitics, as well as presenting a clear image of the future, the Internet of Energy: distributed, digitalized, democratized, demonetized.
  • Closing Keynote - Has the Future Caught Up with Us? presented by Katja Schipperheijn: [2 June, 16:00-17:00] - In a world that is evolving ever faster, it is often impossible to keep up with innovation. Lifelong learning and constantly adapting to the new are indispensable.  In this sometimes provocative keynote, Katja takes you into the world of learning ecosystems where the symbiosis between man and machine ensures the well-being and growth of man, the organisation and society.
  • Partner Roundtables - Learn best practices and hear about the latest trends in the industry from top-notch thought leaders. Engage with other FM professionals in person at the conference at these lively roundtable discussions.

  • Facility Tours: Get an up-close facility tour of Amsterstam's amazing and unique facilities. 
    • De Hallen Amsterdam: [1 & 2 June, 9:45-10:45/11:00-12:00] 

      Commissioned by the municipality of Amsterdam, the original complex was designed by the Public Works Department – responsible for the design of buildings with a public function: bridges, schools, roads, tram depots – and built between 1901 and 1928 in various phases.

      The expressive style of the Amsterdam School is prominently represented. This architectural movement originated in the early 20th century and is characterized by an expressive construction method, clearly reflected in the frequent use of bricks and beautiful truss constructions that can be found throughout the building today.

      Despite a thorough renovation, historic details – such as railways still on the ground – have remained intact. As we are increasingly charged with regenerating our facilities for improved efficiency, well-being and versatility, this stimulating facility tour will open your eyes to the possibilities for redesigning and reusing old buildings in a sustainable, circular and visionary way. Facility tour: €29

    • EDGE West Amsterdam: [Date/Time TBA]
      EDGE West is one of the most sustainable buildings in Europe, with BREEAM Outstanding certification. The building is completely climate neutral. We offer you the chance to get to know this sustainable building during a facility tour. Not only is the beautiful meeting area impressive, we will also take you through the story behind the development of this building. Facility tour: €49
