Arcadia and Encore to Unveil Newly Expanded Showroom During NeoCon 2024

Arcadia and Encore are pleased to announce the highly anticipated expansion of their combined brand showroom in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart, which will be revealed during NeoCon 2024. Nearly doubling in size, the extended space will effectively present Arcadia and Encore’s ever-growing and diverse product offerings, while reinforcing both brand’s ethos — a design-driven approach to bring innovation, quality, and a service-oriented perspective to the contract furniture market.

Designed by fellow California-native Karen Steuben-Dunbar, owner and principal of Inovus Design, the new showroom will provide a place to gather and be inspired, demonstrating how to best integrate both brands’ multifaceted products together within various commercial landscapes including healthcare, education, corporate office and hospitality. “We’re looking forward to the launch of our new venue, not only to proudly exhibit our latest product collections, but also to further foster connections among the vibrant local design community through engaging events throughout the year. Our goal for the new showroom was to create a space where innovation and collaboration thrive,” says Helen Kim, Arcadia and Encore VP of Marketing.

To accompany the official unveiling experience during NeoCon, Arcadia and Encore will also debut 10 new product collections, in addition to displaying recently introduced offerings. More immersive tours and events will also be slated throughout the year to leverage the space to its fullest potential. Visitors are encouraged to explore the showroom firsthand in space #340 on the 3rd floor of Chicago’s Merchandise Mart during NeoCon, June 10th – 12th 2024.
