With more than 50,000 visitors from more than 120 countries - including estimates for the final day of the fair - ORGATEC 2014 indicated a slight increase in visitor figures on 2012.

On the domestic side, the important decision-makers and specialist retailers were also on site, whereby ORGATEC thoroughly fulfilled its highest expectations." Hendrik Hund, Chairman of the bso (Association of Office, Seating and Contract Furniture), says: "With a wide-ranging combination of conceptual and product innovations, the future of office work could actually be experienced at ORGATEC.
