Chicago—Known for being the benchmark event on the commercial interiors industry calendar, NeoCon will draw more than 50,000 design professionals to The Mart in Chicago, June 12-14. Connecting key players under one roof for three productive days, NeoCon is a powerful source of innovation—a launchpad not only for new products but for creative thinking and new ideas. NeoCon 2017’s diverse educational program brings forth themes, ideas and issues, which influence the next big movements and shape the built environments of tomorrow.
Presented by thought leaders from a range of disciplines, topics include “branding in hospitality design,” “the role of serendipity in the workplace,” and “empathy and design.” New for 2017, NeoCon is debuting “Icons @ NeoCon,” a special series of seminars headlined by four seasoned design and business experts: Lauren Rottet, founding principal and president of Rottet Studio; Cheryl Durst, executive vice president and CEO of IIDA; Carol Ross Barney, founder and president of Ross Barney Architects; and Howard Tullman, CEO of 1871.
“This year’s educational program includes nearly 100 CEU accredited sessions, and explores what’s next in healthcare, hospitality, government, education, retail, the workplace and beyond,” said Monica DeBartolo, director of programming at NeoCon shows. “The diverse offering will engage professionals from a wide range of fields and allow them to earn CEU credits across many different tracks. Beyond accreditation, we pride ourselves on offering programming that has broader applications. The 2017 program will deliver on the dynamic and multifaceted educational experience which attendees to NeoCon have come to expect.”
The NeoCon 2017’s complimentary online registration is open at www.neocon.com. CEU seminar details and registration will go live on March 10.
