Who's been to Orgatec?

Hello everyone!

I have an opportunity with work to possibly go to Orgatec 2016 in Cologne, Germany. Has anyone been to this show/conference before? What were your thoughts? I have been told by one person that its supposed to be a really amazing show that a designer is lucky to attend even once or twice in their lifetime, but aside from that I am fairly new to the event. Any general advice for traveling to Cologne?

I look forward to hearing from you!


The Sales/Marketing GM and Managing director of my company go every year. Much better products and brands than CIFF.

Very nice press reference Orgatec, thanks for information

When is Orgatec 2017?

It’s 23.-27.10.2018. I can’t find any information about the 2017 edition :frowning:

I think it’s every other year. I’ve been twice and it’s a huge good show for office furniture trends in Europe with a few of the big US players exhibiting. Cologne is a cool town with great Kolsch style beer houses.

AVClub, you are lucky, as you have such opportunity. Congrats
