Final report about ORGATEC 2016
ORGATEC 2016 closed on Saturday (29 October 2016) with outstanding results. The leading international trade fair for the modern working world recorded a considerable increase in visitor numbers of more than 10 per cent with more than 56,000 visitors from 118 countries. The trade fair's theme, "creativity works - new visions of work", ran through the presentations by the exhibitors and attracted praise from architects and designers in particular. Exhibitors and visitors agreed on one thing: without a doubt, ORGATEC has grown to become the creative hotspot for the modern working world. Koelnmesse Chief Operating Officer Katharina C. Hamma commented: "The results have exceeded our expectations by far. But we are especially pleased that we attracted a wider audience than large numbers of architects and designers. In particular, many senior decision-makers attended ORGATEC this year, including managers from listed companies that apply innovative, holistic workplace concepts."
