Running a field service business is a complicated process that needs a lot of effort to make it work. From staff and resource management to customer and partnership acquisition, it takes a comprehensive approach to succeed.
When it comes to customers and partnerships, networking events and conferences still play a vital role. In this article, we prepared a top field service management expo list to help you navigate your business towards success.
What is field service management?
Field service management refers to companies that employ their resources on customers’ premises – for example, facility maintenance, vending machine, security companies.
Field service management businesses usually have a team of field technicians and engineers and back-office to monitor operational flow, assign tasks, and schedule the staff.
But let’s come back to FSM expos.
FSM expos around the world
We live in challenging times, and one of the most affected areas is live events. However, you can see it both ways. Some events were canceled due to health risks, but on the other hand, many events moved online and became more accessible for the global audience.
Field service management conferences and expos are a great way to:
- Learn more about the latest industry trends. At these events, you can see presentations from industry leaders talking about the latest technologies and solutions. They also introduce current and upcoming challenges to be prepared and bring a positive knowledge-sharing base.
- Networking and potential partnerships. An FSM expo gives you an incredible opportunity to meet like-minded people and industry leaders. It’s always great to have good relationships with the largest incumbents in the market and learn from them. Other types of businesses also attend these events to offer their services so that you could improve your operations and find the most advanced solutions for your customers.
- Potential clients. Events and expos are an excellent way for customers to find service providers. They can meet in person (or online) to learn about the service from the front row and consult about their specific business needs. You can find businesses looking to snag deals, so be prepared to pitch your service proposal.
