Office Coworking Lab

Offices are tomorrow's coffee houses. This development brings changes in company catering and thus also new business potential for the vending industry.

And euvend & coffeena 2019 brings this trend to life with the "Office Coworking Lab". This is where the Office Lounge, Coworking Space and Students Lab come together. Company catering and vending meet new working environments and junior staff in a creative working environment with coworking lounge/loft character.

Students and junior staff in training will work in the Office Coworking Lab - a kind of coworking space equipped with vending facilities - on projects defined in advance by the industry. Visitors of euvend & coffeena will be able to look over the shoulders of young people from the industry. For example, tasks can come from the areas of marketing and sales, international marketing, design, communication and PR, architecture and technology.

Why an Office Coworking Lab?

"A revolution is currently taking place in our working world," reports Burkart Schmid, editor-in-chief of DFV Mediengruppe. "The empty job market and a record high of over 45 million employees in our country are accelerating the behaviour of employers to allow more freedom and more flexibility in the workplace. In doing so, they are also meeting the I-wishes of generations Y and Z," said Burkart Schmid.

"Already during the preparations for euvend & coffeena 2017, we discovered the growth market Office Coffee Service for the trade fair," reports Stefanie Mauritz, Director euvend & coffeena. "We took our first steps back then with an Office Coffee Corner concept. Companies were able to present their OCS solutions here. Over the past two years, the idea of the Coffee Corner has continued to evolve. For euvend & coffeena 2019, we initially assumed an office lounge as the basis for the planning. This project has developed continuously due to the rapid changes in the working world. It is no longer a question of separate rooms for catering in between. Keywords such as coworking spaces, communication zones, working environments, lounges, work culture, digitalisation, shared spaces are all part of our experience. And the spaces or different zones merge more and more into each other. Communication zones are being equipped with drinks and snacks," Mauritz continues. "The new world of work does not wait - it is already in our midst," says Burkart Schmid. "The future of work is self-determined", headlines Design Offices GmbH and promises: "For a creative exchange over a cup of coffee, people meet in the spacious coworking lounge with its loft character".
