After the success of its first ‘Spotlight Series’ session on Sustainability Standards, the event organiser is also hosting another creative discussion, this time on ‘New Product Ideas for Tomorrow’s Workspaces,’ taking place ?on the 7th May at 11am.

With the introduction of its ‘Spotlight Series’ sessions, Workspace Design Show hopes to give the commercial interiors world some food for thought in the build up to the main event in November.

The talk will discuss: How do designers enhance the future workspace experience through products? Should we focus on re-engineering existing products or designing brand new products? How is the dialogue between designers, clients and manufacturers evolving to create tomorrow’s products?

The session will discuss how recent disruption is leading to new product innovations in workspaces across the UK. All the above will be discussed at the event, which will be chaired by Daniel Gava, Brand Strategy Advisor for the Architecture and Design Industry and featuring expert insights from industry specialists who will also speak at the inaugural event in November.
