NFMT Baltimore 2013

CADM and Qube Global Software US exhibited at NFMT Baltimore 2013, a national trade show and educational conference for commercial and institutional building owners and facility managers. Held in the Baltimore Convention Center from 12th – 14th March 2013, there were over 146 new exhibitors including the CADM/Qube booth, which contributed to the 685 total stands on display.

The model in action!

To entice the 5,300 facilities professionals in attendance, CADM displayed their Lego office model which has proved a big hit over the past year at multiple exhibitions in the UK, US and Europe. The model enables CADM and Qube to demonstrate how the software works in a live office environment. Throughout the three days a competition was also held for attendees to guess the average utilisation of the desks over the course of one day. CADM used their Accordant Anywhere Android Application to survey the office, which was constantly being moved, over four hours of the day. Those wanting to take part, wrote a percentage guess on their business card and dropped it in a large Lego head. The winner was contacted at the end of the day, and presented with a Lego set to take home.

The show also offered 120 educational sessions, NFMT is also known as the country’s largest and most robust education event dedicated to professionals responsible for the management, operation, maintenance, design and construction of commercial and institutional buildings. Conference sessions focused on sustainability; energy efficiency; critical facilities, leadership and career advancement; maintenance and operations; power generation and reliability; safety and security; technology and more.

Todd Kotlarek, Director of Events for Trade Press Media Group, a co-owner of the event said “We are extremely pleased with the expansion of our exhibit hall this year. More attendees experienced and interacted with more suppliers and products than ever before. That means more folks returned to their offices with solution and networking contacts. A bigger show floor is a huge benefit to our exhibitors and attendees alike.”
