First on the list is the deadline for the Partnership categories, which will close on 16 May this year, once again coinciding with World FM Day.

There will be additional deadlines for the four categories for individual entrants, as usual, which include Team Member of the Year, Young Leader of the Year, Account Director of the Year and the Peter Middup Lifetime Achievement in FM Award.

Open to all those confirmed as finalists in the Partnership categories, the deadline for the Team Member category will be 5 July to nominate non-managerial members of staff to be interviewed on the same day as the judges’ visit.

The next notable date will be the deadline for the Young Leader of the Year and Account Director of the Year categories, which will be 27 July this year.

There will also be a launch event in central London around the middle of June for the Young Leader of the Year, organised by the Young Managers’ Forum.

Judging for both these categories will take place in September at the Canary Wharf office of Gold Sponsor Barclays.

The final deadline for nominations and entries to the Peter Middup Lifetime Achievement in FM Award will be 30 August.

All judging exercises will be completed by the end of September, following which the independent panel of judges will meet in a central London location in the first week of October to decide the winners of the Partnership categories, the Peter Middup Award and the overall winner.

The presentation ceremony for the PFM Awards 2018 will take place within London’s The Brewery on 7 November this year.
