Bengaluru, Karnataka, April 23, 2012 

The first FM Zone India leadership summit held at Park Plaza, Bangalore saw more than 500 of the country's finest facility managers brainstorming on a series of issues that created waves across corporate India. The Summit enabled a common platform for industry leaders such as Ajay Vij, Senior VP, Accenture Workplaces Solutions; Arunabh Mitra, VP-Global Business Continuity Leader & India Infrastructure Leader, Genpact; Joydeep Nag, Vice President &CFO, GE Healthcare as well as pioneers in the field of infrastructure support & management- T V Mohan Das Pai, Chairman - Manipal Global Education Services Pvt Ltd, to guide the industry aspirants.

"I am confident that India will witness tremendous growth in the coming 10 years such that the country has never dreamt of since its inception," said T V Mohan Das Pai, during the presidential address. However the experts were also skeptical about India's capacity to handle prosperity. Several strategies were discussed at this forum to deal with the anticipated financial boom to hit the country. Sridhar Raghavendra, co-founder, FM Zone remarked, "The summit is a brilliant platform for networking and creating awareness as well as bridging the void between policy makers and industry leaders." The forum has committees across India and plans to conduct summits in Kuala Lumpur and Sri Lanka to handle the growing demands in infrastructure. The founders have also identified important courses in Facilities Management in renowned universities, such as the University of Vienna, to train and develop personnel. Sustenance, being a key aspect of maintaining quality, was also extensively discussed at almost all panel discussions. For certain verticals, the need to create benchmarks and industry standards was identified while brainstorming on executing better facilities.

The forum also honored professionals who have achieved brilliance in different fields across various sectors of the industry. "The idea was to identify the future leaders, and celebrate talent present amongst us.. We are pleased to partner with FM Zone India to ensure the knowledge sharing platform that has been built is taken to the next level to raise the bar for the Facility Management Professionals in this country " added Mr. Shrinivas Rao, CEO-Asia Pacfic, Vestian Global. These FM professionals play a pivotal role to ensure the Informational Technology industry functions round the clock through the year. We are proud of their contribution to an industry that is a major driver of India's GDP and felt the need to recognise and felicitate them for their contribution to the Indian economy.

The two day event covered a range of issues and services in business delivery from strategy to execution. Lastly but most importantly, Facility Management was widely acknowledged as one of the core area of growth.
