Covid-Update: Slowly returning to the office

Three months ago, most of our team members exchanged their office desk for their kitchen table and began working from home while we put extensive measures in the office into place to help slow down the spread of Covid-19. Our IT worked around the clock to make sure that everyone was set-up at home to work the best they could under these new circumstances. And while we learned that large parts of the work we do at Blickfeld, with a few exceptions, can be handled from home, we are looking forward to slowly, and carefully, move back into the office.

#Flattenthecurve Blickfeld style

The coffee machine is standing still, but the Blickfeld team keeps pushing forward.

These are truly extraordinary times. We at Blickfeld have also been contemplating the current situation and have taken measures to protect our employees as best we can while also helping to slow down the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

What comes after the hype? Real solutions are needed

While established trade shows are increasingly struggling for exhibitors and are forced to rethink their concepts, for many companies worldwide the Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, in Las Vegas has become the trade show not to be missed. Even the players of the automotive industry can now be found at CES rather than in Detroit or at the IAA. Why? Because the car is becoming more and more smartphone- and gadget-like.
