WHAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT INSIDE AN OFFICE? THE PEOPLE...

The idea of the ‘traditional office’ was already changing, but COVID accelerated this disruption and forced business leaders to reconsider how to keep their employees safe, engaged, and happy, whilst also increasing productivity and protecting the bottom line.

Workspace provides a platform for commercial interior designers, fit out contractors, real estate developers, business owners & leaders, Workplace specialists, facility managers, and furniture distributors to understand the range of products and services available to the Middle East commercial interiors market whilst attending workshops and presentations to help them navigate this new reality.

THE GCC IS LEADING THE WAY IN IMPLEMENTING NEW WORKING STYLES
