NeoCon Registration is Open for the 55th Edition of the Design Conference

Plans are taking shape for the 55th edition of NeoCon (held June 10-12 at THE MART), the world’s leading platform for commercial space design, as show management announces a list of speakers and brands impacting the built environment.

The three-day event offers opportunities to connect, learn, and experience the latest trends and innovations across verticals, from office to healthcare. Attendees, who hail from large enterprise companies to design professionals representing markets ranging from Workplace, Healthcare, Hospitality, Retail, Real Estate, Education, Public Space, and Government can register to discover and source over 1 million square feet of game-changing commercial design solutions.

THE MART has reported brisk leasing activity throughout 2023 and into the first month of 2024, underscoring the building’s value as an important year-round destination and a source for design discovery.

Headlining NeoCon 2024 are three speakers from architecture to art to fashion. Presented by IIDA, Gensler’s Global Entertainment Leader Bob Weis will kick off the show on Monday morning with a talk entitled “Leveraging the Power of Storytelling in Commercial Design.”

Tuesday's keynote, presented by ASID and sponsored by Momentum Textiles & Wallcoverings, will feature British-Nigerian Multi-disciplinary Artist and Designer, Yinka Ilori, in a discussion co-moderated by ASID CEO Khoi Vo and IIDA’s Executive Vice President/CEO, Cheryl Durst, entitled, “The Power of Affirmation: Yinka Ilori in conversation with Khoi Vo and Cheryl Durst.”

Finally, two-time Academy Award-winning Costume Designer Ruth E. Carter will take the stage as Wednesday’s keynote speaker with her presentation, “Designing Afrofuturism: The Art of Storytelling through Costume Design,” presented by AIA Chicago.

In addition, the schedule will feature a dynamic series of featured presentations, interactive workshops, and CEU seminars as well as special activations across show floors, offering insights on trending topics affecting how we design, build, and live.

A new installation spotlighting emerging designers and curated by Jon Otis, Pratt Institute professor and Principal & Creative Director of Object Agency (OIA), will showcase the perspectives of student designers, ensuring the future of design is both celebrated and nurtured.
