NFMT Vegas education for facilities professionals
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.

How Do I Make Changes to My NFMT Vegas Registration?
Need to make changes to your information? You can log back into your registration at any point to edit it.
What is the quality of the conference content?
We're bringing together over 80 facilities experts from prestigious organizations to show you how to run your facilities and properties more effectively. You'll hear from many of the same experts that speak at other industry events, but without the high price tag of admission.
Are the educational sessions only for advanced professionals?
No. Educational sessions are applicable for facility professionals at all experience levels, and the agenda includes beginner, intermediate and advanced educational sessions. You'll find the audience level indicated in each session description.
What if I'm interested in sessions that are taking place simultaneously?
It happens, and it's not a problem! We understand that with up to 8 educational sessions held at the same time, there's bound to be more than one that interests you. After the show, we'll email you a link to all available presentation handouts. But if you're looking for even more, consider an Insider membership! Members will receive full video recordings of 35 sessions after the show. It's almost like you were in two places at the same time!
Do the same facilities professionals attend every year?
NFMT Vegas attracts both returning and new attendees looking to sharpen their skill set and see the latest technologies and solutions. You'll see plenty of energetic introductions as well as more than a few reunions among the audience.
Will I receive confirmation of my registration?
Yes. After you register online, you will receive an automated email confirming your registration.
Will my NFMT badge be mailed to me?
No — that's what your email confirmation is for! Bring your email confirmation to the Pre-registration counter to pick up your badge quickly and easily.
Can I earn CEUs at NFMT?
Yes, as an authorized provider of IACET CEUs you can earn CEUs for any session you attend at NFMT Vegas. You'll earn 0.1 CEU per hour and you'll receive a transcript after you successfully complete a quick assessment for each session. The link for the assessments will be emailed 10 days after the conference. Your transcript can be used to self-report to any organization or association. We cannot guarantee acceptance as it is up to each organization or association to accept the transcript. Click here for more information on CEUs.
What weather should I expect?
Las Vegas is a great place to visit during the fall. It still gets hot during daytime, with average temps typically in the high 60s to low 70s. It can get chilly at night, with average nighttime temperatures in the mid 40s.
What is the suggested attire at NFMT Vegas?
We recommend business casual. You may want to bring a sweater or sport coat. Despite the hot temperatures in Vegas, session rooms in the Rio can sometimes get a bit chilly. You might traverse the expo hall multiple times each day, so plan to wear comfortable shoes. We also offer coat and bag check for all attendees.
Does the Rio offer parking?
Yes! The Rio offers free parking in its garage!
How can I stay up to date about NFMT Vegas before and during the event?
