Home News Best of NeoCon to return with fresh approach

Chicago— NeoCon organizers said the show will present a new and enhanced version of the Best of NeoCon Awards for the 2021 event, which will be held Oct. 4-6, 2021, at theMART.

A show tradition since 1990, Best of NeoCon is its official juried awards program honoring outstanding new products from exhibiting companies across a wide range of verticals. According to the show, the 2021 edition will feature 58 categories (17 new this year), a streamlined submission process and a robust marketing campaign including new branding, programming, events and digital content.

“We’ve been working closely with Eileen McMorrow, of McMorrow Reports and longtime Best of NeoCon manager, as well as a number of industry leaders to rethink, update and expand Best of NeoCon, while preserving its core strengths and influence as one of the most well-regarded awards programs for the commercial interiors industry,” said Lisa Simonian, vice president of marketing at theMART. “We’re excited to launch the new iteration and celebrate the 2021 Best of NeoCon winners at the show in October.”

All Best of NeoCon entries will be evaluated by a diverse jury of leading architects, designers, specifiers and facility managers. The carefully selected industry leaders have expertise that span commercial, health care, institutional and hospitality sectors. Jury recruitment is currently underway. Interested trade professionals who would like to be considered as a candidate to serve as a juror (and who have not served before) can send an email with firm, title and full contact details to receive an invitation to be considered as a juror.

Product submissions will open on June 1 and close on Sept. 9. Exhibitors may enter any new products introduced to the U.S. market since NeoCon 2019.
