Philadelphia—NeoCon East 2015 received rave reviews in its inaugural year in here. After 12 years in Baltimore, the move north proved to be a success. Attendance was up 15% from the previous year with industry professionals from the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and NYC regions flocking to the Pennsylvania Convention Center to see the 250+ leading companies and educational offerings.

“It was our first year in a new city and it far exceeded our expectations,” said Susan McCullough, senior vice president, Merchandise Mart Properties, which runs NeoCon East. “From technologies that improve commercial spaces and contribute to the well-being of those who experience them to products that go beyond the industry standard and spark a whole new design dialogue, there was a lot to see and specify.”
