ORGATEC suspended in 2020 and developing presentation options for 2021 as part of the Koelnmesse furnishings portfolio.
The next regular edition of ORGATEC will be held from 25 to 29 October 2022.
Although outstanding registration levels for the autumn events had already been achieved by spring 2020, and in spite of extensive preparations for the trade fair and the #B-SAFE4business package of measures for coronavirus-compliant implementation of our trade fairs, the situation of this trade fair increasingly began to reflect current developments around Covid-19 and the economic situation. In recent weeks, a large majority of exhibitors and trade visitors decided not to attend ORGATEC after all. In light of this, Koelnmesse reassessed the overall situation and decided that it was best to respond to the cancellations and wishes of a large number of industry exhibitors and trade visitors by not implementing ORGATEC 2020.Read press release
ORGATEC – NEW VISIONS OF WORK
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.
