This year's Neocon will be held June 15 to 17 at Chicago's Merchandise Mart, with headlining presenters including designer-architect Patricia Urquio; host of National Geographic Channel's Brain Games Jason Silva; fashion designer Anastasija Sugic and architect Martin Lesjak delivering keynotes.

A few new-to-Neocon highlights will include Concertex's first permanent showroom, replete with textiles, wallcoverings, faux leathers and leather tiles; RT London, which will premiere the Doozie, a modular and modern lounge; and Brooklyn-based Uruhu Design, which will launch its first contract collection at the fair, among others.

Some of the top panels and programs include "Getting Published,” with design journalists, bloggers and social media experts discussing insights into getting projects in front of editors on June 16; the Frank Lloyd Wright in Chicago tour on June 16, featuring the Praire Style-Robie House; and a selection of hour-long CEU seminars.
