Special Newsletter ORGATEC 2014

Even-numbered years are ORGATEC years. On 21 October, Cologne will once again become the centre of everything related to the office and contract furnishing.

In six halls, more than 600 German and international exhibitors will be presenting their new products for the modern office. The fact that the fair takes place biennially heightens the expectations of visitors, who can catch up on the latest developments not just at the stands of the manufacturers but also at a number of forums and roundtable discussions.

As always, Architonic's ORGATEC Guide will help you find your way around. And the Architonic stand A70–B71 in Hall 9 is the ideal meeting place at the heart of the fair. On the first evening of ORGATEC, the Architonic team looks forward to welcoming you to its traditional Architonic Disco at King Georg club – and while you're waiting for your taxi, our ORGATEC blog (http://news.orgatec.de) will keep you up to date with the latest news from the fair.

Take a look into your future. And most importantly, get your tickets now to take advantage of bonuses like free travel on local public transport systems, shorter waiting times and, above all, the reduced pre-sale ticket price.

P.S. At INSIGHT COLOGNE on 24 October, Cologne-based companies invite you to take a look at best-practice examples of modern office design. Tickets are now available; make sure you don’t miss this highlight of the exhibition.

All kinds of insights: ORGATEC Trend Forum

Presented by Dr. Hajo Schumacher, the ORGATEC Trend Forum is the central stage for discussions about current topics related to the working world. High-level experts will discuss the latest trends and present best-practice examples from the world of modern offices and work. 

All kinds of answers: the IIDA panel discussion

The expert roundtable of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) promises to be a lively and interactive panel discussion on the topic of working culture. Moderated by Cheryl Durst, Executive Vice President and CEO of IIDA, the discussion will be attended by executives from design councils and institutes and companies from all around the world. They will examine how the ideas and perceptions of a new generation of young employees will affect the conception and realisation of the working world of the future.


The Architonic Best Contract Design Products app

The Architonic Best Contract Design Products app presents more than 25'000 design products for the contract market ranging from seating, office systems and lighting right across to flooring and fabrics. The app only displays products from premium segment brands.

For each product you will find images of product variants and typical applications, as well as the possibility of sending direct enquiries about catalogues, prices and stockists. Many products are also presented within the framework of projects by international architects. The intuitive navigation by product group, manufacturer, designer or free text search provides you with fast search results anywhere and at any time. 

Architonic Disco at Klubbar King Georg

Is there a more chilled-out club in Cologne than the King Georg? We don't think so and this is why the Architonic Disco will once more be taking place in our regular 'watering hole' on 21 October.

This is the perfect opportunity to get together with colleagues after the first day of the fair and to exchange initial impressions in a relaxed atmosphere. Cool music will be provided by the Kame House DJ collective, and the bar will be serving, as usual, gin & tonic with the finest Gents Tonic Water from Switzerland.

Pick up your personal invitation at Architonic's Concept Space in Hall 9, A70–B71.
