This year’s ‘Culture @ Work’ theme looks at the underpinnings of our future world of work. Catch up with Team Indesign at Orgatec 2018!
5 October, 2018
Orgatec is a tradeshow that puts our working lives front and centre. Rolling around every two years, the fair will once again be taking over Cologne, this time exploring the theme of ‘Culture at Work’. Taking place from Tuesday 23 – Saturday 27 October, the halls of Koelnmesse will be overflowing with the latest commercial furniture and innovations – and Indesign’s Raj Nandan, Colleen Black and Aleesha Callahan will be on the ground to soak it all in.
The last iteration of Orgatec saw large corporations such as Microsoft and Samsung join the ranks, along with a more pronounced inclusion of brands outside of Germany. In 2018 that position will become more solidified as our working lives continue to come into focus.
Some of the topics of debate for this year’s show include – “Workplace (R)Evolution for wellbeing”, “What makes a good office?” and “What will the hotel of the future look like?”
Stay tuned for Orgatec stories on Indesignlive.com as we unpack these timely issues, and follow along via #IndesignOrgatec2018.
