ORGATEC 2022. New visions of work from Spanish exhibitors

The world of work has changed more rapidly in the last two years than in any other era in recent memory. Working from home and videoconferencing, multilocal and virtual working in agile teams have opened to new possibilities and generated new demands for innovative work environments. Workplaces need to become more flexible and at the same time more sustainable. Together with the exhibitors, ORGATEC 2022 will reveal the industry’s vision about the office environments for the “new normal”.  Instead of rigid workstations, spaces should now support new, creative ways of working, promoting the exchange of ideas, the social interaction and the teamwork between departments.

From 25 to 29 October, the 2022 edition of ORGATEC will host more than 600 exhibitors and offer an exhibition space of 120,000 square metres bursting with inspiring ideas and innovations for the challenging task of designing the work environments of today and tomorrow. For more coherence, the space has been thematically divided into 3 main sectors:

In a hybrid, multilocal world of work, the design and impact of working environments are especially important. Knowledge workers move dynamically between physical and virtual spaces, between offices and home offices, between more private areas and spaces intended for collaboration in their activity-based offices. And the choice of where to work has never been freer, never made more consciously than it is now.
