Paperworld 2018: Special show to focus on health
Paperworld 2018 is all set to provide new insights into the 'Future Office'. The second edition of this special show in Hall 3.0, which celebrated its debut in 2017, will concern itself with health. From 27 to 30 January 2018, the 'Future Office' will be all about the well-being and health of office staff.
With this as its emphasis, the trade fair for paper, office supplies and stationery in Frankfurt am Main will be spotlighting a hot topic for the sector and its future, as far as offices are concerned. A healthy, safe workplace with opportunities for personalisation of design and for being able to withdraw to a quiet space are crucially important, if motivation and productivity of the staff are to be maintained. That is why companies are increasingly investing in the promotion and management of health. What that might look like in reality and what possibilities exist for creating a ‘healthy’ working environment are all things that visitors to the trade fair can expect to find out, first hand, at Paperworld.
Six areas contribute to an overall healthy office atmosphere: the office space, furniture, catering, working practices, staff and task, and these are all explored one by one in the dedicated special show. So, visitors trace a path through individual locations with acoustic experiences and lighting scenarios. They can try out a display of seating and get information about the quality of meals and about bio-rhythms; they can experience the atmosphere in quiet areas, to which people can go and discuss their new impressions in a café. In addition, there is some highly relevant and useful information to be had in specialist lectures and guided tours. The topics, which are aimed at specific target groups, change daily.
