The NFMT Story

The National Facilities Management and Technology Conference & Exposition (NFMT) was launched in 2001 by the publishers of Building Operating Management and Facility Maintenance Decisions magazines. In 2008 we launched NFMT Vegas to be a companion event to serve the West Coast of the United States. The goal was to bring free education, networking and product discovery to facilities professionals to another region of the country. Today NFMT Vegas is the premier facilities management conference on the West Coast supplying broad-based education for facilities professionals from every type of organization: government, education, commercial office healthcare, retail, hospitality and industrial.

“I would recommend to anyone that is willing to learn and get new ideas.”

Jerry Feuling, Facility Manager, Jones Lang LaSalle


NFMT Vegas is held at the Rio Las Vegas Hotel and Casino.

Time out of the office will not be wasted — we understand that it is hard to leave the building for a few days. Luckily, we live in a society that can be reached 24/7, we promise Las Vegas has cell service and WiFi! Take this time to spend a few days with other facilities managers and come back excited to tackle the largest obstacles in your facilities.
