Acoufelt’s sponsorship of the 2019 Future Offices Summer Summit by IQPC held in San Francisco on August 21-23 was a global leadership commitment. Future Offices attracted an audience of 500+ corporate real estate design and workplace strategists, including the likes of commercial giants Google, Facebook, Airbnb, LinkedIn, Salesforce, Twitter, Uber and Coca-Cola. The summit offered the latest in maturity-tracked content and interactive workshops, with global level speakers tackling the challenges and opportunities surrounding employee experience, interior design, portfolio management & leasing, coworking, technology and sustainability and wellness. San Francisco is also home to some of the Northern Hemisphere’s most impressive work hubs and headquarters, available for guided site tours upon registration.
“There has been a huge shift in the importance placed on workplace design” says Verne Markham, Managing Director for the Americas. “This stems from the abundance of research indicating there exists a real connection between office design and employee retention, well-being and productivity.” “Leading companies have been exploiting this information for a long time now, and the rest of the world is only just beginning to appreciate the reality of these long-term benefits”.
Acoustic management is one of the key pillars that sits at the heart of sophisticated workplace design and strategy. The connection between employee productivity and the state of the acoustic environment has been well documented, however, meeting the acoustic needs of a space has often meant compromising on aesthetic design. Acoufelt’s innovative acoustic solutions eliminate this compromise, allowing for design that caters to both the ears and the eyes.
Acoufelt™ is all about Making Quiet™ for working, learning and living spaces. World class thought leadership drives the Acoufelt Acoustic FWC™ philosophy of delivering acoustic materials suitable for all three surfaces; Floor, Wall and Ceiling. By designing for the purpose of the space, we can create acoustic environments that are best suited to the needs of the space – and subsequently – the needs of the individuals within these spaces. This is the philosophy that drives our business.
Acoufelt is proud to be to sponsoring the 2019 summit alongside an array of international organisations, all focused on enhancing employee well-being through research-based workplace design. We look forward to sharing our experiences at this year’s conference, and transforming this new knowledge into innovative customer-centric acoustic solutions.
