NeoCon Shows Welcomes New Sales Director

Madeleine Tullier

With NeoCon East fast approaching (November 15-16, Philadelphia) and NeoCon’s historic 50th anniversary next year, there is a lot of exciting planning in the works for this fall – so timing is perfect for the show team to grow. NeoCon Shows is pleased to announce the appointment of new Sales Director Madeleine Tullier. Having worked with the Merchandise Mart for more than 10 years, Tullier brings seasoned industry experience and recognition within the design community to her new role. She will be working closely with VP of Sales, Julie Kohl, in the development and strategic growth of several trade shows including NeoCon and NeoCon East.

Julie Kohl remarks, “With Madeleine’s long-term industry experience and robust network of relationships fostered over the last decade, we know that she will be an exceptional asset to our team. If the caliber of our added talent is any indication, we are on a great trajectory as we look forward to NeoCon East this fall, followed by the milestone 50th anniversary year of the NeoCon trade fair in 2018.”

Tullier will continue managing the trade show sales for Casual Market Chicago, where she cultivates relationships with top outdoor furnishings manufacturers. In her new position, Tullier is excited to merge her experience in trade show sales with her personal passion for design as she joins the contract industry.

NeoCon 2018, the 50th anniversary event, will be held from June 11-13 at the Mart. NeoCon East returns to Philadelphia for the 15th annual edition, November 15-16, 2017 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.  More details are available at
