Frontier Horizons: Shaping Tomorrow’s Campuses

Explore. Innovate. Collaborate. Transform

Date:  June 17-19, 2024

Join us for the OCFMA Workshop, Frontier Horizons, where we’re reimagining the future of facilities management and shaping tomorrow’s campuses. More than just a conference, Frontier Horizons is a call to action—a celebration of progress and a glimpse into the limitless potential of educational facilities as the vanguards of change, innovation, and collaboration.

At this transformative event, Ontario college facilities professionals will converge to explore the frontiers of possibility in facilities management. Through dynamic presentations, interactive workshops, and engaging panel discussions, we’ll delve into the latest trends, technologies, and strategies shaping the future of learning.

Frontier Horizons offers unparalleled opportunities to connect, collaborate, and co-create the future of facilities. Together, we’ll embark on a journey towards building tomorrow’s campuses—where the boundaries of what’s possible are continually pushed, and the potential for positive change is boundless.
