Registration is officially open for NeoCon, June 12-14 at THE MART in Chicago. The leading platform and most important event for the commercial interior design industry, the show annually draws about 50,000 influential professionals including manufacturers, dealers, architects, designers, facility managers, students, design organizations, and c-suite executives.
Attendees can expect to learn from provocative and timely educational programming, discover ground-breaking innovations, and experience engaging installations. This year’s unifying theme, “Together We Design,” will be carried throughout the three days of the show as the community gathers to explore how we can collectively effect positive change through the built environment and our shared spaces.
“For more than five decades, NeoCon has been our industry’s launchpad for innovation and the best opportunity to unite and inspire the design community. Building on the momentum from last year’s show, we expect a very strong NeoCon 2023,” comments Byron Morton, vice president & co-head of leasing at THE MART.
NeoCon 2023 will showcase the latest game changing products and services from more than 400 leading and emerging companies and feature a number of new initiatives aimed at adding freshness and vibrancy to the NeoCon experience.
In addition to NeoCon’s roster of stellar keynote and CEU programming, this year’s edition will feature a new NeoCon Talks program series, a podcast studio featuring a series of “Live from NeoCon” podcasts, a special design-oriented ART on THE MART projection, and the official launch of THE MART’s WorkLife Conference Center and expanded River Park, among other highlights.
“Understanding the how and why people interact with the built world continues to change, making our jobs as designers more complex,” remarks ASID, Assoc. AIA, Global Design & Brand Director at Ford Motor Company Jennifer Kolstad.
“NeoCon is the ideal resource for me to gather industry insights that will continue to help me create environments at the forefront of design while incorporating our society’s evolving needs.”
“NeoCon is a powerful driver for positive change. It’s an exciting and important time to be part of our industry and we all share the responsibility to respond to the changing nature of work, people, and the environment,” comments Molly Menke Prior, vice president of workplace at OFS.
“From live podcasting, a slate of unique showroom experiences, and showcasing new products, we look forward to connecting with industry leaders and exchanging ideas that will shape the future of commercial interiors. NeoCon is the perfect stage for OFS to demonstrate its commitment to creating spaces that inspire and elevate the human experience."
