The conference included plenary and workshop sessions led by speakers selected for their expertise in a particular field. Speakers came from a range of backgrounds and included practitioners, consultants and those from relevant professions.

The 2017 conference addressed the latest developments and trends in asset management by focusing on the following five key themes: 

  •  Contracts – controlling cost and quality
  •  Compliance – getting the balance right for risk, health and safety
  •  Responsive maintenance – caring for properties to protect asset value
  •  Managing stock and investment – maintaining and improving the asset portfolio
  •  Technology and data – driving service improvements
