Düsseldorf Congress establishes new working environment – open-plan office concept promotes creativity and teamwork

The “Convention Centre of the Future” has been an increasingly used buzzword in the meetings industry over the past few years. The innovation alliance “Future Meeting Space”, for example, initiated by the GCB German Convention Bureau in cooperation with the Fraunhofer IAO and the EVVC Europäischer Verband der Veranstaltungs-Centren e. V., systematically analyses developments in this area with a view to developing future concepts on this basis. As part of SevenCenters of Germany Düsseldorf Congress supports this project – and draws inspiration on it. The term “New Work”, innovative ways of working in the global and digital age, determines not only event formats but also the back offices of more and more companies – to the benefit of customers.
