NEW ORLEANS - The International Facility Management Association’s (IFMA) World Workplace 2007 Conference & Expo, Oct. 24-26, will be held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

An estimated 5,000 attendees are expected at the 28th annual conference that will feature 78 educational sessions and new product demonstrations by hundreds of manufacturers from across the globe.

The conference will feature the IFMA Green Zone, an exclusive section of the expo floor reserved for those exhibitors offering environmentally friendly products and services.

One of the highlights of World Workplace 2007 will be the IFMA Foundation’s Volunteer Rebuild Project, which will help repair the lingering damage of Hurricane Katrina by rebuilding one or more of the 22 fire stations debilitated by the storm. Conference attendees can add to their New Orleans experience by attending IFMA facility tours throughout the city. Among the facilities open for touring will be the Morial Convention Center, the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, and the largest rebuilding project in the history of U.S. stadiums, the Louisiana Superdome.

“World Workplace has transitioned over the years from one in a series of built environment events to the ultimate facility-focused opportunity for expanding learning horizons,” said David Brady, IFMA president and CEO.

In addition, World Workplace 2007 has received Cleaner & Greener certification from Leonardo Academy, a nonprofit environmental consulting group. Organizations seeking Cleaner & Greener certification make a commitment to gather emission reductions, offsetting the emissions caused by events.

“We’re very excited about partnering with IFMA for World Workplace 2007 because of the key role that IFMA and its members play in advancing sustainability in buildings,” said Michael Arny, president of Leonardo Academy. “Sustainability provides a great opportunity to advance the world’s understanding of the importance of high-quality facility management.”
