Almost 400 commitments to participate from all over the world
After the forced break due to the pandemic, the interest in a personal professional exchange on an international top level is very high. Almost 400 companies from all over the world have already registered for the “Orgatec” at the end of October 2022, in addition to brands such as Andreau World, Assmann, Brunner, Calligaris, Carpet Concept, Interface, Interstuhl, Kinnarps, Lapalma, Lintex, Muuto, Palmberg, Sedus, Thonet, Waldmann, the number of exhibitors now continues to grow steadily. A regularly updated list of the enterprises announced so far is on immediately under www.orgatec.de.
Companies interested in participating in “Orgatec” 2022 can still benefit from the early booking discount until the end of March 2022. Those who still want to take advantage of this offer at short notice will find the necessary documents on the trade fair website. There, the forms can also be filled out and sent directly online – a cumbersome download is no longer necessary.
The great interest shown by companies reveals just how strong the desire is to be able to exchange ideas in person, to have discussions with each other and to see, touch and try out creative solutions. Because one thing is undeniable: our working environments have changed profoundly in recent months – more radically and at a much faster pace than anyone had predicted. Hybrid meetings, working from home, multi-local and virtual working in agile teams have become the “new normal”. The new world of work is more diverse than ever – and needs new perspectives. Workplaces must become even more flexible, increasing numbers of people are working in shifting locations – in offices, in hotels, in open workspaces, at home or while travelling by car, plane or train.
The upcoming “Orgatec” will therefore have a particular focus on the latest developments in relation to hybrid and flexible working. This will also include the associated smart technologies for communication and organisation in modern working environments. Sustainability will also figure prominently in the presentations and discussions in the exhibition halls in October. Alternative and sustainable materials, and topics such as resilience and the circular economy will be in the spotlight at “Orgatec” 2022.
As was already planned for 2020, “Euvend” & “Coffeena” will be co-located with “Orgatec” 2022 for three days of the trade fair. “Euvend” & “Coffeena” is the leading international trade fair for vending and office coffee service. This is where new work meets new retail. New to-go concepts from the out-of-home sector for the office and contract business will be presented. The co-location of the events opens up new opportunities for “Orgatec” visitors in these market segments. “Orgatec” tickets give visitors access to the co-located event, thereby further increasing the benefits of attending the trade fair for companies of all sizes and making a visit to Cologne even more efficient.
