NEW VISIONS OF WORK
COLOGNE, 23.-27.10.2018 WWW.ORGATEC.COM
WHAT KIND OF SPACES DOES THE FUTURE CULTURE OF WORK NEEDâ€Š?
DISCOVER VISIONARY CONCEPTS AT ORGATEC. The digital transformation means work is no longer tied to firmly defined spaces and times. Tomorrow’s office can be anywhere ... Even in our heads. The future belongs to flexible knowledge workers who work creatively and with a sense of responsibility – and it belongs to a work culture that is based more so than ever before on cooperation, motivation and trust in the spirit of partnership. In the light of these developments, how can workplaces be created which give freedom and structure equal space? What kind of environment makes it possible for ideas to grow, for achievements to surpass achievements, and for meetings to become successful brainstorming sessions? How can we structure the collaboration of individualists? These are the kind of questions that ORGATEC asks. The leading international trade fair for the modern working world explores how work environments and work culture interact and presents new visions of work. Your vision of contemporary workspaces should be a part of this, too. 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 Space, Contract, Mobile and Office 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 INTELLIGENT DO WORKSPACES HAVE TO BEâ€Š ?
IN ORDER TO PROMOTE THE NEW COLLABORATIVE WORK CULTURE. The new culture of work lives off diversity â€“ and the same applies to the design of work areas. Instead of conventional individual offices, there is growing demand for open, multifunctional spaces. But how can the same space provide meeting venues and still offer employees individual quiet zones where they can concentrate on demanding tasks? How can lighting and acoustics promote concentration? And where should the director sit? Behind the interaction of work culture and work environment lie complex challenges for the design of intelligent workspaces. Well-planned office landscapes take diverse needs into account, but they still form a single, coherent entity. Present your solutions at ORGATEC in the SPACE segment.
A PLEASANT AMBIANCE IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CRITERIA FOR A PERFECT WORKPLACE
HOW DOES A WAITING ROOM BECOME A LABORATORY OF CREATIVITYâ€Š?
IN ORDER TO PROVIDE PLACES FOR SELF-DETERMINED WORK – ANYWHERE, ANYTIME. Self-determined. This word is the key to the future of work. In this vision, flexible knowledge workers should encounter hardly any boundaries: creativity can strike anywhere – at the hotel, in the waiting lounge, on the move. What they need is spaces for their ideas and spontaneous exchanges with others. How can public spaces foster this new work culture? Are conferencing tools enough to make sure that a virtual meeting produces tangible results? Can a lounge corner stimulate communication and networking? Whatever your approach to transforming public spaces into inspirational spaces for collaborative working, present your solutions in the CONTRACT segment.

HOW INTELLIGENT DOES TECHNOLOGY HAVE TO BEâ€Š?
IN ORDER TO WORK TOGETHER MORE SUCCESSFULLY IN FUTURE. Digital devices are setting the pace in our working world: they organise our processes more intelligently and efficiently by making all data and information available anywhere, anytime. They enable global teamwork across national borders and time zones. Digitalisation offers us exciting innovations each day – but which technological developments will really help us? Which innovations will take communication and collaboration to a new level? Inspire ORGATEC visitors with cutting-edge information and communications technology that promotes creativity and the new culture of work. The forum for your innovations is the MOBILE segment.

HOW DOES AN OFFICE BECOME A SMART OFFICEâ€Š?
IN ORDER FOR EVERYONE TO REALISE THEIR FULL POTENTIAL. Aesthetic responses aside, the design of work environments has a very practical function: it should reflect the company’s culture and bring it to life, inspire and promote identification with the organisation – and still provide a functioning infrastructure. What do the best-case scenarios look like? How smart and individual do offices have to be so that everyone can give his or her best? Does furniture that promotes outstanding, creative approaches exist? Is replacing the conference table with a sofa landscape a smart decision? Your ideas are needed. Present your solutions for furniture, organisational and presentation systems at ORGATEC – in the OFFICE segment.
