Fear not. The Architonic Guide ORGATEC 2014 (PDF download) will ensure that you stay on top of everything going on at the Cologne fair as well as in the city, including who's showing at Design Post and what's happening at our members' city locations.

Fear not. The Architonic Guide ORGATEC 2014 (PDF download) will ensure that you stay on top of everything going on at the Cologne fair as well as in the city, including who’s showing at Design Post and what’s happening at our members’ city locations.

Even-numbered years are ORGATEC years. On 21 October, Cologne will once again become the centre of everything related to the office and contract furnishing.

 

In six halls, more than 600 German and international exhibitors will be presenting their new products for the modern office. The fact that the fair takes place biennially heightens the expectations of visitors, who can catch up on the latest developments not just at the stands of the manufacturers but also at a number of forums and roundtable discussions.

 

As always, Architonic’s ORGATEC Guide will help you find your way around. And the Architonic stand A70–B71 in Hall 9 is the ideal meeting place at the heart of the fair. On the first evening of ORGATEC, the Architonic team looks forward to welcoming you to its traditional Architonic Disco at King Georg club – and while you’re waiting for your taxi, our ORGATEC blog will keep you up to date with the latest news from the fair.
