Cisco will share some dramatic new innovations that will challenge both buildings and the workplace such as the new 'Smart Space’ software – a platform for mapping real time use of buildings from WiFi data gathered from people’s mobile phones and laptops as well as the new CMX location engine. These technologies allow new location-aware services, changing everything from the experience of arriving at reception through to ‘engineering serendipity’ bringing people together.

We will bring together some of the biggest and brightest names to debate, discuss and divulge the latest thinking on the Future of Work and the Workplace. Over 200 senior professionals from real estate, facilities, technology, and executive management, architecture, design and other professional advisors will attend to hear the very best from thought leaders and share best practice and expertise. We believe that work is shaped by the intersection between HR/people, technology and space/property. Only by colliding ideas between these three groups will innovation emerge – this is the vision behind WORKTECH – a forum that brings together these key areas. It is for this reason that we place our event in innovative and contemporary settings; like Level39, One Canada Square.
