NeoCon East Nov. 9 Events

Time:2016-10-27 02:38 Source:www.lmpiso.com Writer:lmpiso Click:


Philadelphia, PA (October 2016) This November 9-10, NeoCon East will transform the Pennsylvania Convention Center into a lively hub for the commercial interiors industry, attracting over seven thousand top professionals across the Workplace, Healthcare, Education, Public Space, Hospitality, Retail and Government sectors. Now in its 14th year, it has become known for its ready-to-specify solutions, compelling educational programming and entertaining networking events.

Exciting keynotes include Co-Founder/CEO of Architizer & Partner of HWKN Architecture, Marc Kushner, as well as visionary industrial designer/ Co-Founder of Birsel + Seck, Ayse Birsel. The show’s special features and strategic partnerships with IIDA PA/NJ/DE, GSA, IWBI, DVGBC and AIA Philadelphia have made it an even more dynamic event.

NeoCon East will once again be co-located with AIA Philadelphia’s Design on the Delaware Conference, offering reciprocal resources to hundreds of principal-level architects in attendance. There will also be new educational opportunities, like the timely WELL Workshop presented by the highly regarded International WELL Building Institute and the Delaware Valley Green Building Council.

Lisa Simonian, Vice President of Marketing, theMART, says, “A major reason why NeoCon and NeoCon East are so critical to the industry lies in their power to connect all the key players in one place. With its more intimate environment, NeoCon East is really the place where relationships continue and business gets done. To complement the show floor experience, we’ve made sure to include networking opportunities with the region’s most influential associations and attendees, such as the Opening Night Party co-hosted with IIDA PA/NJ/DE, as well as the Design on the Delaware Kick Off Party which will immediately follow.”

New this year, NeoCon East is partnering with the International WELL Building Institute and the Delaware Valley Green Building Council to present the WELL Workshop. “Understanding the WELL Building Standard” is a 2-hour workshop designed to introduce the Standard’s ideology, structure, and certification process. Attendees will learn how to harness the built environment as a vehicle to support human health, well-being, and comfort.

The show will once again run concurrently at the PCC with AIA Philadelphia’s Design on the Delaware Conference. The 14th Annual Design on the Delaware Conference focuses on issues and opportunities of the built environment with general sessions, seminars, and tours. NeoCon East attendees can take advantage of reciprocal registration and sign up for conference programs a la carte.

The show’s fall timing is ideal for post-NeoCon product availability and for government procurement as it coincides with the federal budget cycle. NeoCon East has the largest concentration of products and services under GSA’s Multiple Awards Schedule.

Headlined by Marc Kushner and Ayse Birsel, the NeoCon East team has tapped into the experts this year for programming, delving head-on into new and regional case studies. Offering over 25 CEU accredited programs across a wide range of topics and vertical markets, the event is also a crucial moment for regional commercial interiors professionals to connect and learn. Presented by thought leaders from a range of disciplines, this year’s lineup includes sessions from the teams behind such pivotal projects as the redesign of the Sandy Hook School, and the game-changing online tool for government buyers, Acquisition Gateway, to name a few.
