“NeoCon continues to be a leader in the commercial interiors and broader design conversation, providing an essential platform to gather, learn, and share ideas,” comments Allison Kearns, Director of Programming for THE MART. “Our robust conference program will continue to incorporate our popular tracks and session formats. We’re also excited to introduce new programming initiatives, such as immersive workshops to engage on-site attendees in practice-oriented learning.”
