“In the ever-evolving realm of design, workspaces have transcended their conventional roles to become hubs of innovation and boundless creativity,” remarks Esha Bark-Jones, the Event Director of the Workspace Design Show. Amidst this exciting transformation, the Workspace Design Show emerges as a dynamic and inspiring event that promises to reshape the way we envision and experience workplaces.
Scheduled to take place on October 11 – 12, the Workspace Design Show is set to gather an eclectic mix of architects, designers, developers, fit-out companies, coworking companies as well as real estate, workplace & facilities leaders from Occupiers across the Benelux. This vibrant get-together will converge to pave the way for the future of experiential workspaces.
Hosting over 24 engaging panel discussions across two conferences, the Show features a lineup of over 90 speakers from diverse backgrounds and attendees can look forward to delving deep into the latest trends in workplace design and strategy. The significance of designing workplaces for a diverse and multi-generational workforce has never been more pronounced, as companies recognize the importance of creating environments that cater to various needs.
Central to the event are the Workspace Design Talks, a captivating series of discussions that bring together luminaries from the commercial interior design industry. These discussions offer a unique space for attendees to explore and debate the future of workspace design and strategy, with featured speakers from UNStudio, CBRE, MVRDV, Powerhouse Company, Cushman & Wakefield, HofmanDujardin, AECOM, Turner & Townsend and more.
CBRE created Square One, a stage design commissioned by Workbrands, to host the panel discussions for the Workspace Design Talks. As an epicenter of design democracy, CBRE designed the space as a backdrop for many different discussions on a various range of topics, inspired by the ancient city square in Greece, the Agora. In order to align seamlessly with Workbrands’ mission and operational approach, they challenged CBRE to design the entire setup in a circular manner. This direction reflects their dedication to hosting a lounge that contributes to a sustainable future.
