3 days, 40 speakers, around 13,500 visitors - that was the new trade fair New Work Evolution in Karlsruhe, which deals comprehensively with the new way of working.
With the trade fair taking place parallel to LEARNTEC, there was concentrated expertise on the working and learning worlds of tomorrow to discover from 23 - 25 May. What exactly does New Work encompass in detail? Is it just a fruit basket and table football or a completely different approach to retaining employees in the long term? And how can I integrate New Work individually into my company?
The exhibitors gave an insight into their innovative strength in the field of modern work culture and made it clear that companies can make numerous adjustments in order to implement New Work in their company. A perfect match for the trade visitors, who stated in the visitor survey that they were at New Work Evolution to find inspiration (44 percent), to learn about innovations (41 percent) and to get an overview of the topic and further education (both 33 percent). What does Gen Z really want? What should an office look like according to their new ideas? And what role does leadership play in the transformation to the working world of tomorrow? All these questions were discussed in numerous presentations.
The fact that it was a good decision to hold New Work Evolution and LEARNTEC in parallel due to their thematic proximity was also shown by the great interest of LEARNTEC visitors in the new working worlds: Almost 40 percent of them said they would use the new trade fair and the varied programme of lectures at New Work Evolution. Next year, the New Work Evolution will again be held together with LEARNTEC from 4 to 6 June.
