Orgatec has spanned over half a century first as a trade fair that specifically catered to a smaller German market for the office furniture sector back in 1953. The event operated under a different name, which changed several times as the scope of the fair grew to incorporate beyond furniture but also all other related products, equipment and appliances needed for the office. The biennial trade fair now offers trade visitors the entire value chain in Koelnmesse.
We’re talking furnishing for office facility planning and construction, extension and management, office & office facility equipment, acoustics, flooring, lighting, A/V technology, furnishing for office and facilities, organizational & planning systems, accessories, IT telecommunications and software. All these trends come alive and guide buyers into creating the look of their work space. Orgatec serves as both a style guide and a sourcing platform of the highest order. Plus, it is instrumental in charting movements in work space design.
The pandemic has changed the way people work, especially knowledge workers who are not really required to stay at their office to be able to perform their duties. The hybrid approach to work over the past two years has brought massive changes to interior design. What characterizes good places is the ability to meet workers’ needs for a quiet environment without distractions. Plus, the right conditions and resources to help with flexibility and digital connectivity. Orgatec is here to handle the transformation of the modern workplace through both its exhibition portion and information programme.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
Orgatec admits both trade visitors and members of the general public, which gives exhibitors a chance to gauge interest from customers at all levels of the consumer chain. Organizers reveal a significant growth among all major groups of international trade visitors (it should be noted that the fair attracts significantly more international visitors compared to German visitors) – European countries, North America, Central and South America, Japan and India as well. It should be noted that a majority of the trade visitors are also senior decision makers in their companies. The same divide applies to exhibitors as well with 75% of companies coming from outside Germany.
Trade visitors come a variety of backgrounds and professional expertise, which gives exhibitors plenty of opportunities to expand their professional network in different areas. You’ll get to meet with architects, interior designers, designer consultants, investors, facility management companies, representatives of the office furnishing trade, furniture trade, and real estate industry. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, end users.
Exhibitors come from all over Europe – Finland, Italy, France, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, the Czech Republic, Denmark, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland. You will also see companies from East Asia like South Korea and Japan. Brands you’ll encounter include Assmann, Brunner, Calligaris, Carpet Concept, Interface, Interstuhl, Kinnarps, Lapalma, Lintex, Muuto, Palmberg, Sedus, Thonet and Waldmann.
Additional Value of Attending
ORGATEC always delivers an impressive event and congress programme. In the past, success has been had with the Xing New Work Sessions and the ZEIT Work & Style conference. The event offered a quite a lot in terms of initiatives with PLANT 10.1, Inspired Collaborations and WORK TO GO resulting in fruitful partnerships. Curated special areas are also central to the trade fair and in 2022 you can expect the arrival of the special exhibition area “Materials4Future”. This showcase will focus on ways to combat the high carbon footprint of office furnishing products.
