2019 Fab O&M Show Smashing Success for All

Facility professionals converged in October at the Sandia Resort and Casino for innovative information provided by highly motivated suppliers and to hear three expert speakers whose highly relevant topics underscored the credibility of the annual event. The Facility and Building Operations and Maintenance Show had free food, fifty-dollar gift cards, and a 65" Smart TV give-away (won by Vanessa Holiday, Office of Special Trustees, Department of the Interior) sponsored by National Roofing. The stage was set as facility and building operations managers, engineers, and property managers from across the state networked together and visited with their current and future suppliers.

Five heavy hitting corporate sponsors underwrote the event for 2019: National Roofing, JB Henderson Construction, The DVL Group, Kinetic Improvement, and Top Tier Service were the premier supporters. David Griego, a Facility Manager for the Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute commented, "I found that folks were willing to take the time to discuss their products and services in unhurried detail."  The real estate giant CBRE deployed multiple property managers who visited each supplier booth.  Eaton Sales and Services' Project Manager Tony Grezeszak, a first-time exhibitor, commented, "Success!  New connections made and old ones reestablished!"

The spirit of friendliness and cooperation makes the FAB O&M Show event unique.  The trade show was jointly sponsored by the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico and the Associated Builders and Contractors of New Mexico.
