The Future of Work Exhibition was developed to illustrate the radical ways work has changed over the last 100 years. Many significant influences have fueled this revolution. Technological advances that have made it possible to work from anywhere and a massive generational shift is underway.
The most notable change may be the transition from the information age into the new knowledge economy. In this new economy, the very purpose of work evolved from making things and sharing information, to collaboration and idea generation. This paradigm shift overwhelmed many business leaders who are trying to comprehend why their old business models, hierarchical organizational structures and static workplaces are so ineffective. The new knowledge economy requires an innovative approach and new tools for developing and managing human-centered work ecosystems.
On the Future of Work Exhibition tour, participants will engage in many interactive experiences including the following exhibits: Smart Buildings and The Internet of Things at Work, Integrating Augmented Reality in the Workplace, Virtual Reality Living Office Experience, as well as Cloud-Based Collaboration Technology Tools & Facilities Management Technology Tools.
The Future of Work Exhibition will also feature a monthly Thought Leadership Luncheon on the Third Wednesday of every month, see our upcoming luncheons here.
