NeoCon announces 2015 keynote speakers

Home Press Release NeoCon announces 2015 keynote speakers

Chicago—NeoCon 2015 will take place June 15-17 at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago. With over one million square feet of exhibition space, the show serves as a launching pad for thousands of new products and covers a spectrum of vertical markets including workplace, healthcare, hospitality, retail, environmental, government and education.

The show’s educational program features over 100 accredited seminars, association forums, keynote presentations and special events. The 2015 keynote speakers are Patricia Urquiola of Urquiola Studio; Jason Silva, host of Brain Games; Martin Lesjak, founder of Innocad and Anastasija Sugic, an independent fashion designer.

“More than just a tradeshow, NeoCon has become known as an incubator of ideas and a lively symposium for the industry,” said Monica DeBartolo, director of programming. “Our keynotes help us start this important dialogue and keep the intellectual energy going across the three days of the show. This year, these keynotes are both fresh talents and stalwarts of design. Patricia Urquiola has been responsible for some of the most iconic designs of the past decade, while Martin Leskaj and Anastasija Sugic’s 2-year-old studio is one of the industry’s hottest rising stars. Jason Silva, a media artist, futurist and philosopher, will get the audience to think about the world around them and how people interact with technology. This level of excellence is something that our showrooms, exhibitors and attendees have come to expect from the show.”

The keynote presentations are free. Show and keynote registration will open online Feb. 9.
