Amsterdam, 17-18 October 2019—The Smart Workspace Design Expo welcomed representatives from major companies like Airbnb and Linkedin to discuss how to design offices in today’s ever-evolving business climate. Rapid changes in consumer behavior and work habits means constructing office spaces that can also adapt quickly.
“It’s planning for the future so you’re creating a space that can evolve as teams and needs evolve. It doesn’t make sense anymore to design a space that will last for five or ten years,” says Brett Hautop, Senior Director of Global Design and Build for LinkedIn.
In this position, Brett Hautop is charged with curating amazing workplaces and environments for LinkedIn offices across the globe—he has been doing this in one form or another for almost 20 years.
The event is designed for workplace strategists, HR professionals, facility managers, real estate professionals, interior architects, designers and business leaders who want to reach higher levels of performance, flexibility, collaboration and retention by embracing the future of design and technology in their workplaces.
