NeoCon 2021 Call for Presentations
Opportunity to Submit Ideas & Share Design Expertise Next Year at NeoCon 2021
NeoCon, a widely recognized voice of authority in the commercial design industry, is seeking program proposals for the 2021 NeoCon Conference Series, which is slated to run from June 14-16, 2021 at theMART in Chicago. Each year show organizers tap the leading minds in design and the built environment to create unparalleled programming covering a wide range of design disciplines and educational tracks. The show’s nearly 100+ CEU seminars offer world-class expertise and insight into today’s most time-sensitive topics. Building on the success of the 2020 NeoConnect online series, the 2021 show will feature an innovative hybrid program with onsite sessions complemented by digital offerings.
“The industry looks to us not only to provide relevant, informative programming, but to lead the conversation,” says Monica DeBartolo, Director of Programming for theMART. “We are looking for experts to weigh in on what is new, what is trending, and what is happening in these dynamic times and how it affects the built environment. The NeoCon Program Advisory Comittee will be looking for content that hasn’t been shared before or is being considered from fresh perspectives.”
Submissions, which are due September 30, 2020, will be reviewed and approved by industry leaders on the Advisory Committee. Sessions selected will help shape the future of design through education and awareness. More details as well submission guidelines can be found at www.neoconcfp.com or www.neocon.com.
