    The British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) has entered into an exciting two-year deal with specialist business and commercial market development agency, b2b partnerships Ltd (b2b).
    BIFM have partnered up with b2b to identify and develop content, research and channel partnerships and strategic alliances with the Institute. This includes establishing a new strategic partnership programme which opens up opportunities for organisations to partner with BIFM across their research, content and insights activities.
    Chris Moriarty, Director of Insight at BIFM said “b2b consulted for us eighteen months ago to identify what our channel and content opportunities were and it was an easy decision to partner with them now to deliver this agenda. We are currently repositioning ourselves as a leader in workplace management, as well as facilities, and b2b brings a wealth of experience which is crucial during this new exciting phase as we recognise how the right strategic and commercial partnerships will help us grow and become more sustainable.”
    “BIFM represents an increasingly valuable industry. There is so much potential for organisations to work with BIFM and we are excited to help the Institute to unlock their market potential. With a wealth of channels and reach into the marketplace, our aim initially is to build market, content and channel partnerships with leading organisations wanting to engage with the sector from a business to business perspective. As the world of work continues to change, it is fantastic to be working with BIFM during this exciting time of workplace transition” said Ali Heppenstall, Managing Director of b2b partnerships.
    With almost two decades of experience building high profile business to business partnerships, which have increased revenues and enabled change for both clients and corporate partners, b2b has the required expertise to increase BIFM’s sustainability as a business as well as drive change for the Institute and its partners. b2b will be connecting companies and developing partnerships, sponsorships and strategic alliances across dedicated programmes and industry initiatives for the Institute.
