Focus Areas at ORGATEC 2024

ORGATEC 2024 introduces an innovative trade fair concept with a complete restructuring of the hall layout. Each exhibition hall is characterized by its own thematic focus as a "Focus Area", providing inspiring insights into trends and developments shaping the future of work. Exhibitors showcasing products and solutions related to the respective focus themes are positioned around these highlight areas. This marketplace concept enables optimized and topic-oriented guidance of visitors, creates an extended exhibition area and offers plenty of space for inspiration and exchange on the design of tomorrow's working world.
