“IFA 2023 is well prepared. We are organizing the show on a larger scale this year than we did in 2022, and all the major exhibitors plan to be there. We are excited to be a member at Mindspace, who are providing our team with an inspiring workspace with the best technical infrastructure, at an excellent location that is also not far from Messe Berlin,” says Oliver Merlin, Managing Director of IFA Management GmbH, which is responsible for organizing IFA. The IFA 2023 trade fair will take place from September 1-5 at the Messe Berlin.

“In recent years, we have seen an increasing demand for on-demand workspace solutions and companies seeking satellite offices for their hybrid work arrangements. While large companies usually have their own office space, they rely on our offerings to complement their workspace needs for long-term and short-term projects. Companies benefit from our flexibility and high adaptability to design the spaces according to their requirements. We are very pleased to welcome the IFA team during their preparations for this major event,” explains Oliver Lehmann, General Manager Mindspace in Germany. 

In addition to the amenities and benefits, members get to enjoy Mindspace’s signature high-end, boutique design as well as personalized service from the team on-site, who help build a strong sense of community and organize a varied program of exclusive events at Mindspace Ku’damm.

Berlin is a key city for Mindspace, which now has seven locations in the German capital. Just this month, Mindspace opened its sixth Berlin location at Münzstraße. In total, Mindspace counts 13  locations in its German portfolio, with Hausvogteiplatz and Düsseldorf both opening early next year.
