Saddle up - we're headed to Houston, April 28 - 30, 2020! While we finish putting the finishing touches on our Future Offices Spring 2020 Event Guide, help yourself to the preliminary agenda to get a scope on the topics, sessions, and early speakers we've got.
At the 2018 Future Office West this past summer, we sat down with Ruven Gotz, Director, Digital Workplace Advisory at Avanade, to discuss the future of workspace design, how work environments impact employee productivity and why Future Offices is different from other office design events.

In this interview, Siemens Real Estate's EVP, Head of Region Americas, Michael Kruklinski talks about how Siemens leverages "intelligent space design" to make their offices more profitable, efficient and sustainable. Other highlights from the conversation include:
Collaboration drives creativity in NeueHouse’s shared workspaces. With locations in Manhattan and Los Angeles, NeueHouse offers experiences, workspaces, personalized services and opportunities that foster new ideas and important associations. In that environment, most people don’t want to worry about logging into systems, setting up presentations and passing speaker control from one participant to another in order to share a document. They want to be able to share the conference information and have a dialogue with somebody as they would in a face-to-face meeting—a feat that's often easier said than done. ClickShare enables NeueHouse to have seamlessly presentations across the board.
Creating clutter-free workspaces
To create the most productive workspaces, NeueHouse Chief Technology Officer Greg Harper creates clean and productive environments. That means they have no wires on the desks and the tables and are flexible enough to make content sharing easy in every conference room and special event space. Barco’s ClickShare provides an unobtrusive wireless format, easy-to-use interface and intuitive sharing capabilities making it a logical companion to these modern, minimalist spaces, aiding both form and function. ClickShare units are flexible to configure, seamlessly fostering the sharing and collaboration that are part of all creative business environments.
Simple, compatible, secure
Regardless of the technical expertise of the user, ClickShare is a great equalizer. Tech novices and experts are equally comfortable and can immediately meet and share—regardless of whether users are working on a Mac or PC. By eliminating time wasters such as configuring passwords, accessing Wi-Fi networks and connecting network cables, meetings run seamlessly and effectively. And since the data flows through a wireless connection between the button and the device, nothing has to go on the NeueHouse network, ensuring their network remains secure.
The simplicity, compatibility and security of ClickShare can pay off. Studies show nine in ten office workers experience technology-related stress in meetings, and 12% report their meeting room technology struggles actually lost business for their employer. So the simplicity of ClickShare delivers an immediate ROI.
At the 2019 Future Offices Winter, we sat down with Larry Segal, Real Estate Development Lead at Atlassian to discuss:
Organizations are increasingly realizing that in order to attract and retain topmost talent, they must ensure work environments promote productivity, wellness and meaningful, human interactions. However, accomplishing this requires more that simply a deep understanding of space usage and work process but, above all else, empathy. To truly understand what employees expect from and how they engage with their work environments, office design leaders have to start building emotional connections with employees. But how can you build emotional connections with employees at scale? Ahead of the 2019 Future Offices conference, we sat down with office design leaders from Instacart, Citrix, HMS, and more to find out.
