“We are seeing increasing interest in all our designation courses throughout the region,” said Jeffrey A. Horn, BOMI’s President and CEO, “Our highly accredited courses are being well-received by property managers, facility managers, and engineers who see that efficient management of their buildings is a driving force behind Asia’s economic growth and will bring the world’s most successful investors into the region.”
BOMI’s Asian partners are the Thai Real Estate Business School (TREBS), iHub Sinnet Education in Singapore, and PAMAV Training Institute and Technology Center (PAMAVTECH) and Leverage International in the Philippines. “People need special accreditation from institutes like BOMI instead of a general degree to meet the demand for competent facilities and property management personnel in the industry,” said TREBS Director Dr. Sopon Pornchokchai.
In addition to promoting economic efficiencies, BOMI’s courses teach building managers how to operate and maintain their buildings using the latest energy efficient practices, thereby promoting sustainability. Sustainable practices are important to attracting top flight global businesses as tenants, resulting in increased revenue and improved economic conditions.
BMAM Expo Asia 2009 is an annual three-day international trade exhibition and conference dedicated exclusively to sustainable building and plant maintenance, and facility management across Asia. BMAM brings together all the key players in the industry under one roof.
This event, now in its second year, is an educational forum for business operators, building owners, engineers, and key decision makers to better understand the benefits and importance of building and plant maintenance and facility management. Attendees will gain in-depth insight into the latest technology, up-to-date industry trends, and best practices.
Dan Owings, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing for BOMI International, will attend the Expo, along with Jimmy Lim, Director of iHub Sinnet, and Dr. Sopon Pornchokchai, Director of the Thai Real Estate Business School.
Information on BOMI International and its courses will be available at the Thai Real Estate Business School’s booth during the expo.
