The organization over the last two days and during the entire lead-up to the summit was awesome. It was very professional and brought about a mix of professionals, which was really great. It wasn’t boring; there were different events to choose from and there was more to it than just the summit. The location, Lars and his facilitation, the singer on Thursday, the barista; the flawless AVset up; these little details of hospitality and event management make the summit memorable (apart from the great content, of course).
Attending the Smart Workspace Design Summit 2017 has held great value for us. Many different aspects involved in this transformation have been addressed: space, behaviors, technology, real estate, generations, branding... with a high focus on humans, in an informal, energetic, though highly professional atmosphere. We consider it a high-value experience.
SWDS 2017 was one of the best workspace events we have attended this year. The audience is a unique blend of architects and workplace enthusiasts, which makes for a very diverse crowd with innovative perspectives. The venue was perfectly chosen to encourage networking and idea sharing. We are already looking forward to the 2018 event!
SWDS is the greatest international knowledge hub on workspace design, where experts from all sides of the spectrum meet. Meeting other professionals, sharing knowledge and learning from each other during the many interactive networking moments really made this a valuable summit for me personally.
It was a great event. I learned a lot. I checked out most of technologies in the exhibition area
and it's interesting how the market is adjusting to this topic. For me, the best part was visiting WeWork. SWDS SWDS 2017 also featured plenty of interesting people from various companies like Lego or Lufthansa giving speeches.
Thank you for a well-prepared and very inspiring meeting.
