ORGATEC 2018 is taking place in Cologne from 23 to 27 October with the theme “culture@work”. The leading international trade fair for the modern working world is dedicated to the question of how working environments and work cultures influence and relate to one another. With a wealth of exceptional event programmes and inspiring special events, ORGATEC is an important source of momentum for the modern world of work.
The fact that the surroundings in which we work have an influence on our well-being, our creativity, and therefore our performance is well established. Nevertheless, many workplace environments are essentially just boring and less than inspiring. So the question is, how can a culture of innovation be propagated in companies?
In the special event Plant 10.1, visitors are invited to look at people and workspaces in a completely new way. At the heart of the trade fair, on an area of 600 m², seven interactive scenarios await exhibitors and visitors. The exhibition space serves as both an emotion-driven experimental area and a stage. International speakers and coaches will offer visitors inspiration enter into active discussions with them. It aims to show, in a completely new way, how working environments and the people in them can become “innovative tools”.
With its seven interactive scenarios, Plant 10.1 focuses on these five absolutely key influences. The CoWorking themed area is interested in the need to focus on work separately and within a community and in the question of how the desire for transparency and flexibility can be reconciled with the need for security, effectiveness and concentration.
HochSitz will showcase new approaches to illustrate how changes to old working environments can help to liberate thought processes and open up new viewpoints. Unusual spaces are sought after here.
In modern companies, top-down thinking is outdated. Employees don’t want to be handed instructions from above and to simply carry these out. “BühneFrei”, or curtain-up, shows how companies can promote an active dialogue between their staff.
