SEE YOU IN MAY!

The University of Toronto is pleased to host the 2019 OAPPA Annual Conference (Ontario Association of Physical Plant Administrators – Ontario Chapter of APPA) from May 28th to May 31st, 2019 in beautiful Toronto, Ontario. This conference brings together facility management and design, development and planning professionals from across the province to collaborate, strategize, and strengthen networks across the university sector.

The Conference theme for this year is Smart Campuses. The Planning Committee chose this theme, as we live in an era of big data, which makes developing and operating smart campuses challenging. This challenge persists in all aspects of operating a higher education campus, from developing smart buildings, to managing our operations and energy.

We’re looking forward to an exciting event at OAPPA 2019.

Sincerely,
