Adapting to the Next Normal: Practical Design for Social Distancing
As the world changes around us, business leaders are transforming the way their companies work and innovate. Businesses had to quickly adapt to large-scale remote work, but the world's leading companies are now designing the workplace of the future.

Organizations globally are being tasked with reshaping their facilities and operations to enable creativity, collaboration, and success in a new socially-distanced setting. Not only will this require a deep knowledge of one's industry, but also an informed understanding of the pedestrian dynamics that will enable a safe and productive workplace.

We've partnered with Movement Strategies, the world's leading crowd dynamics consultancy, to share the latest design methods and technologies. These approaches will help you operate your facilities safely and efficiently.

Join us Thursday, July 30, for a seminar with Dr. Aoife Hunt (Associate Director) and Prof. Steve Gwynne (Research Lead) from Movement Strategies, as they provide their unique insights alongside Dr. Pete Thompson (Senior Principal Engineer) from Autodesk.

Sep 9, 2020 09:00 AM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)
