KICK-OFF WITH ‘ORGATEC WEEK SPECIAL’

NWX now: The new togetherness

Brunch time at the IBA Forum

People. Rooms. Interaction. In this triad, NEW WORK SE and IBA are dedicated to the question of what drives people to top performance, how their working environment can support them in this, and how communication and collaboration can be organised for the benefit of all.

Four very different guests will talk to the presenter and cabaret artist Florian Schroeder about a working world that develops new forms, rules and rituals. Two workshops deepen the individual aspects and invite discussion.

Language: German

The examination of the "new togetherness" takes place in two stages. The New Work Experience platform NWXnow will start on 19. October 2020. On 27. October 2020 the IBA Forum will be taking over.

FRAME X ORGATEC: Agile Working

Lunch time at the IBA Forum

FRAME, the leading international trade magazine for interior design, and ORGATEC will address the question of how architects and designers can give new space to work. Their conviction: It is not the human being who should adapt to the circumstances, but rather that workplaces must adapt to the changing needs of people.

To this end, a panel discussion and a talk are on the programme every day. FRAME X ORGATEC: Agile Working will be moderated by FRAME publisher and editor-in-chief Robert Thiemann.

Language: English

Tea time at the IBA Forum

Whether with or without the right to work in a home office, experts agree that even after Corona, home office work will be part of everyday life for many employees.  What needs to be taken into account and how the increased use of the home office will affect other areas of work will be examined by the IBA together with the editors of Personalmagazin, the leading specialist magazine for human resources in the German-speaking world.

Our home office special is presented by Maxim Nopper-Pflügler, staff magazine.

The topics at this week's IBA Forum complement each other perfectly with the digital lecture programme of our ArchitectsEXPO OFFICE+AKUSTIK from 27-29.10.2020. Switch between the two platforms and benefit from the wealth of input for future-proof planning of office space!


After the ORGATEC week special, we will continue the IBA Forum with weekly formats.


Our Partners:

The 'Personalmagazin' from the Haufe Group is the highest-circulation specialist magazine for the HR sector in Germany, with over 32,000 copies sold every month. Month after month, the editorial team analyses the latest developments in the world of work and compiles trends and concrete recommendations for action in the areas of strategy, organisational development and HR management. The magazine includes an app, social media channels and the portal for HR managers with the widest reach (haufe.de/personal).

Every autumn, the HR magazine in cooperation with the IBA dedicates a special issue of "Personalmagazin plus: Neue Arbeitswelten" (HR magazine plus: new working worlds) to changes in office design. The special issue presents new office and work concepts and accompanies companies on the way to individually suitable working environments.

NWXnow is the digital format series of NEW WORK SE, which, analogous to the offline event NEW WORK EXPERIENCE, offers a forum for discussion on the future of work. With its various features, NWXnow is dedicated to the question of how we set the course for the future of the work we want. To this end, the NEW WORK SE team regularly talks to experts, thought leaders and practitioners and asks the central question for each topic: What is coming, what will remain and what will change?

In 2018, the NEW WORK subsidiary XING, the IBA and Koelnmesse organised the first NEW WORK SESSION ORGATEC. A continuation was planned for ORGATEC 2020. Since ORGATEC had to be cancelled due to corona reasons, we have set up the two-week NWXnow ORGATEC Special for the cooperation partners.

FRAME is Europe's leading media brand for interior-design professionals. It's our mission to empower spatial excellence by connecting talented designers to visionary clients and the best makers. Over the course of 2020 we’ve heard from multiple employers and developers who are now questioning the need for centralised office spaces.  Many of their clients and staff are weighing the convenience of life lived OOO against the often poorly defined benefits of a dedicated workplace. Or should that be poorly designed? We’ve never had more insight into the impact our working environments have upon our wellbeing, performance and personal progression than we do today. Rather than see 2020 as a sign that the era of the office is over, it is an opportunity to throw out the legacy thinking that has prevented it from reaching its full potential. That's why we've partnered with Orgatec, the premiere international trade fair for the modern working world, to create a programme of panels and keynotes that map exactly how this more resilient, responsive and responsible future for the office can be built.  

The ORGATEC in Cologne is the world's leading trade fair for Office and Facility. The fair generates momentum while paving the way for pioneering advances, demonstrating its role as a successful presentation platform and meeting place for all decision-makers in the office and facility market.

The organizer of ORGATEC is Koelnmesse. The IBA is its conceptual sponsor. This means that the IBA and its members actively support the Koelnmesse team’s preparation and staging of ORGATEC, the leading global trade fair for modern office work. The support activities include defining the overall content of ORGATEC, supporting the project management and public relations work, and cooperatively implementing the event formats.

md interior | design | architecture is the media brand that inspires interior designers and office planners with outstanding projects, designer interviews and new products. The core of the brand is md magazine, but it has long since been expanded to include regular newsletters, constantly growing online content on md-mag.com and md events that have been established for years at attractive locations in Germany. In 2020 the new format of online events has been added.
