October 1999


WORKPLACE '99 - the UK's event dedicated to exploring 'The way we work' - will be officially opened this year by former Conservative Party Deputy Chairman Lord Archer. The exhibition takes place at London's Olympia on 16th - 18th November 1999.

Jeffrey Archer, who is prospective Conservative Candidate for Mayor of London, agreed to become involved with WorkPlace '99 as it is one of the most innovative and exciting trade shows of the calendar. Lord Archer commented: "It is clear that WorkPlace '99 is the number one event when it comes to the working environment. I believe that workplace issues are a fundamental contributor to the performance levels of an individual. Some of the display stands in the exhibition will be of enormous interest, especially those that explore the issues of concern to us all such as stress and isolation. I am delighted to be involved and look forward to seeing how companies have overcome the challenges presented by the technological revolution."

An extensive conference programme will run concurrently to the exhibition. This will take place in the event's intellectual core - The Hub. The conference agenda is now complete, with a number of high profile personalities from the world of business and technology making presentations such as social commentator, Peter York, and forecaster, James Woudhuysen.

Jeffrey Archer concluded: "Some of the topics being discussed in The Hub conference will undoubtedly stimulate some interesting debate. The UK, and in particular, London, has recently become one of the driving forces behind many workplace developments and I welcome any views on the future direction of the industry."
