Workplace Trends Research Summit – Call for Abstracts

Do you or colleagues have recent innovative research or a data driven case study on work and the workplace that you’d like to share at our next conference? If so, applications are open for speaking opportunities and we’d love to hear from you.

Here’s everything you should need to submit an application to speak at the Workplace Trends Research Summit on Thursday 18 April 2024. Please read the following notes before making your application.

About the Programme

Most speaking sessions are filled with the highest ranked submissions from this call for abstracts of published applied research into workplace design and management. We are also interested in data-driven case studies to add to the programme.


The summit attracts around 200 delegates from the workplace community – workplace consultants, occupiers, designers, architects, researchers and suppliers – all keen to learn about the latest research into work and the workplace and how it can be applied for practical benefit.


Slots are 25 minutes in length, which includes approx 5 minutes for Q&A. Content should be based on research findings or data-driven case studies on workplace design and management, that are recently published (paper or web) or due to be published by April 2023. Speakers must be able to provide a link to their research at the time of the Summit.


The event will be held in London and also streamed live. We would like as many speakers as possible to attend the London event in person and are only able to accommodate a limited number of remote presentations.


Successful speakers must be willing for their presentations to be filmed as we will live stream the event and make the recordings available afterwards to selected customers. Speakers will be sent a copy of their recordings to use for their own purposes.
