What kind of spaces does the working world of the future Need?

DISCOVER VISIONARY CONCEPTS AT ORGATEC. Increasingly complex requirements and varied tasks, innovative working models and new forms of cooperation are changing working methods and processes. We work in networks, creatively, collaboratively, in virtual teams, across national borders and over hierarchical divides. In this way, variety is shaping our world of work and work culture in ways that have never been experienced before. It presents major challenges – but many opportu­ni­ties too: for autonomous, more innovative work, greater productivity and ultimately greater success.

What does it take for variety to thrive? How can we create a work environment that can accommodate a variety of working methods? What do those workplaces look like that encourage a sense of ownership and contribute to good ideas resulting in successful projects? ORGATEC offers answers to these questions. The leading international trade fair for the modern working world will showcase the Variety of Work in all its facets – with the perfect interplay of work environment, work processes and work culture.


Make sure that your vision of a modern workplace is re­presented. Show how intelligently designed work environments can promote company culture and make shared successes possible. Whether your vision is for the office, public or virtual spaces, the home or on the go: use the “Office”, “Contract” and “Integrated Solutions & Technologies” themed worlds as a platform for your innovative products and pioneering ideas.

Showcase your innovations in an ideal environment with high-profile trade visitors and large numbers of international decision-makers, where you can make lucrative contacts and take away an immense variety of inspiration for the new world of work – for tomorrow and beyond.

How diverse do workspaces need to be?

SO THAT WE CAN ENJOY EVEN MORE SUCCESS AT WORK. The new culture of work lives off variety – and the same applies to the design of work areas. Instead of traditional offices, flexible structures and open, multifunctional solutions are called for that accommodate different working methods and needs. Well thought-out office landscapes equipped with innovative technology enable diversity and are yet all cast from the same mould. This is where the perfect interplay between work culture and work environment is revealed – and variety becomes key to success. Present your solutions at ORGATEC in the section OFFICE – defining work environments.

How can a waiting room become a creative laboratory?

SO THAT THERE’S ALWAYS ROOM FOR GOOD IDEAS – EVERYWHERE. Work is becoming more and more au­­­­tonomous. It has not been restricted to the office for some time now, but instead takes place everywhere where peop­le can connect and good ideas can flourish. This may be in a hotel lobby or in the departure lounge of an airport. But what makes public spaces places where creativity can thrive? Whatever your approach to transforming public spaces into inspirational spaces for collaborative working, present your solutions in the segment CONTRACT – Defining public professional spaces.


PROVIDING VARIETY WITH THE ROOM TO UNFOLD. Cutting-edge technologies are what make the variety of our world of work possible in the first place. Innovative information and communications technologies provide the foundations for networking, mobile working and global teamwork. But which of them can really take us to a new level? Wow visitors to ORGATEC with your smart solutions that are paving the way for variety and a new work culture. Your forum: the section INTEGRATED SOLUTIONS & TECHNOLOGIES – enabling mobile working and public professional spaces.

How does an office become a hub and a home?

SO THAT WE WORK MORE CREATIVELY AND SUCCESSFULLY. Variety is the key to a new, contemporary work culture that needs variety and lives by it. Variety is an indispensable resource for companies; one that optimises collaboration, encourages innovative thinking and increases productivity as well as your attractiveness as an employer. A work environment where variety is put into practice is more than an office: it’s both a hub and a home. It’s the focal point for creativity and collaborative thinking about the future, and it’s a place people feel comfortable and identify with. This is how variety makes all the difference.
