The NeoCon commerical design show returns to The Mart in Chicago from June 13 to 15, with a roster of design leaders headlining this year’s programming. The keynote leaders include Rockwell Group president David Rockwell; Oana Stanescu, founding partner of architectural firm Family; and International WELL Building Institute founder Paul Scialla. The show’s educational program will host experts in interior design, architecture, product design, engineering and technology, who will address design’s impact on learning, life and creativity.

Shares Monica DeBartolo, director of programming, “Our educational lineup is designed to impart knowledge, stimulate conversation around timely topics, and provide professionals with the ability to fulfill all their needed CEU credits in just three days. This year’s seminars range from unveiling how neuroscience can be leveraged for maximum creativity, to adapting the military drone for use in architecting new built environments—and everything in between. NeoCon not only provides the stage for exploration of these important subjects, our diverse and multidisciplinary mix of educational sessions is a catalyst for exciting new conversations in commercial interiors.”

Also new this NeoCon is the redesigned seventh-floor exhibit hall, which will host approximately 300 brands across areas including Interior Building, Products/Materials and Finishes, Furniture and Fabrics, Flooring, and Technology.
