After more than a year of research, development and testing, a new IFMA logo was unanimously approved by the board of directors at the 2013 World Workplace Conference and Expo in Philadelphia, Pa., USA.

In the coming months, IFMA’s marketing team will be formalizing the final brand architecture and a rollout plan that will be communicated to all interested parties, including chapters, councils, communities and members at large.
