The event runs from 16th - 18th November at London's Olympia and will showcase a number of pioneering workplace developments. The show, which will be opened by Lord Archer, is an exhibition with a difference.

Three of the 150 exhibition stands that will undoubtedly catch the eye are highly creative feature stands which explore highly topical workplace issues:-

  • The Royal College of Art's exhibition stand, with the Helen Hamlyn Research Centre, will introduce the concept of working for our future selves, featuring three key areas: home working; mobile working and healthy working

Running concurrently to the exhibition will be the conference programme taking place in The Hub. The Hub is the intellectual core of the event and has been designed by one of the UK's leading designers to reflect the latest in contemporary design. The Hub programme includes many high profile names from the world of business and management, such as Peter York, Social Commentator, Author, Broadcaster and Journalist; Stephen Hitchins, Chairman, BDG McColl; Paul Finch, Editor, Architects Journal, and James Woudhuysen, Social and Political Forecaster.
