Cityspace’s recent educational seminar on workplace innovation has been deemed a success, with more such events are now planned. The two-hour evening seminar – which took place at Dubai’s Emirates Towers Hotel - highlighted workplace innovation; focussing on how work practice, emerging technology and advanced safety solutions are shaping the new office environment.

Jon Steiner, executive director, Cityspace, UAE, said: “Nearly 200 people from almost all sectors attended the event, which was extremely well received, judging from the copious amounts of positive feedback we had. We are committed to continuing a regular programme of educational events, as these types of seminar provide a vital bridge for further constructive dialogue between consultants and office users on their current and future needs and challenges.”

Cityspace welcomed speakers from respected international companies who shared their knowledge of some of the key elements influencing office environments and buildings of the future; including new ways of working, the impact of technology, advancements in safety solutions and the growing need to optimise the life-cycle of buildings and the workplace through value-driven services.

During the seminar, Mr Steiner presented key statistics, which mapped the ongoing development of Dubai and the growth of the real estate sector. He also shared the viewpoints of several local and international companies in the emirate on how we utilise our workplace and what we can expect for the future.

The keynote topic was presented by Wynne Davies, principal consultant with the Cordless Group, who presented key drivers of change, including Bluetooth, 3G, Public WLAN and hotspots, just some of the buzzwords shaping the future of work and the workplace. His presentation was backed up by case studies from early adopters, and provided a clear vision of the future for work and the workplace.
