NeoCon 2024 Hosted 50,000 Attendees

Chicago, IL, June 19, 2024-The 55th edition of NeoCon welcomed more than 50,000, as architects, designers, specifiers, facility managers, manufacturers, and end-users from across the globe converged at The Mart June 10 to 12. 

Nearly 400 companies showcased new solutions across sectors-from workplace and education, to healthcare and hospitality. 

Showcasing some of the prevailing trends that are shaping not only the commercial industry but also reflect the overall needs of the community at large, NeoCon introductions illustrated the importance of designing for a neurodiverse population, as well as underscored the urgent need for circular design and sustainable solutions. There was also a greater emphasis on neuroaesthetics, as brands are taking into account design’s impact on the brain in their product development processes. As a result, vibrant color came back in a big way this year, as did bold patterns, emphasizing a global desire for more warmth and happiness in all aspects of how we live and work. There was also a notable focus on outdoor solutions, highlighting the enduring market demand for spaces that incorporate the outdoors and promote mental and physical well-being.
