Chicago—With NeoCon just five months away, theMART said it is gearing up for a show full of design innovation and thought leadership. Registration is now open for the event’s diverse attendee base, which includes leaders from across the commercial design, architecture, facility management and real estate industries.
Centered around the theme “Design Makes a Statement,” show organizers said the 2022 edition will feature game-changing products and services from both leading companies and emerging talent and provide unparalleled access to the latest solutions in commercial design. “We are looking forward to welcoming the industry back this June,” said Byron Morton, vice president of sales and leasing at NeoCon. “From powerful keynotes, on-site and virtual programs and CEU-accredited talks, to product launches and special activations, NeoCon 2022 is set to ‘make a statement.’”
Franco Bianchi, president and CEO, Haworth, added, “We have many new products to share for the work from anywhere world and are excited to welcome clients to our NeoCon showrooms in 2022. Our NeoCon spaces allow the design community and clients to experience our products and show how our innovations for inspirational workplaces come to life.”
Programming this year will be a combination of onsite and virtual activations, featuring keynotes, special programs and CEU-accredited talks from leaders within the workplace, technology, healthcare, education and broader design spheres. The Best of NeoCon Awards will also be returning for its 31st season, offering a chance for exhibitors to submit their brightest product innovations from the past year and be reviewed onsite by a distinguished jury of designers and industry specialists.
“NeoCon is, and always has been, North America’s most important launch event for the contract furniture market,” said Daniel Stromborg, a senior associate design director at Gensler Los Angeles, who recently collaborated with NeoCon exhibitor Arper on the Mixu Collection. “There is nowhere else designers and architects can go to experience, see, touch and understand the latest trends in commercial design and I am looking forward to what 2022 has in store.”
Registration for NeoCon is now open and will be free for all to attend. Programming registration will open in April. To register, visit here.
