We have a cover story with a difference this time. It is not about a company, a technology, or a product. It is about how an unimaginable venue — a discarded railway station — could be transformed into an out-of-the-world venue for a party. The prime agent of transformation has been just “cleaning up”. The embellishment came thereafter! Avril Sule, Hospitality Trainer and consultant, who attended the Ninth Convention and Awards of the Hospitality Purchasing Managers’ Forum 2019 at Kochi writes her version of the amazing venue the organisers had created to open the event.
The concept of facility management and ‘talking green’ are being taken out of the built environment, says Mili Majumdar, MD, Green Business Certification Institute Pvt. Ltd, India, in an interview with Clean India Journal. Indian city planners are becoming aware of the sustainable and green practices. The rating system for waste management in buildings is now extended to cities and communities as well.
This issue of the magazine touches upon different aspects of the changing Facility Management scenario. There is a recap of the discussions the experts have had during the last DigiFM conference held in Bangalore. While there is a need to digitise FM, the application has to be as per the requirement of the sector being catered to. The workplace management has become much different today with new age work culture and the role of FM managers is changing towards providing more of human experience rather than just technology.
At the Clean India Technology Week 2020 in Mumbai, one will get to hear and learn more about DigiFM, building services, hospital infection control, waste management, linen care, Car care and much more. The best experts and professionals will converge at this event, and the countdown has started.
Yes, of course, we are waiting to see the people in Delhi and surrounding areas mask free!
