(Chicago, IL, April 2020) Plans are underway to unite the commercial interiors industry this June through a resource and content rich interactive online platform. On June 1, NeoCon will launch NeoConnect 2020—a series of online resources, programming, and events, hosted on neocon.com and designed to virtually connect the NeoCon community.
For the full month of June, NeoConnect will feature product and company details from NeoCon 2020 tenants and exhibitors as well as a full roster of complimentary NeoCon CEU webinars, online panel discussions and virtual social events. Also serving as a community portal, NeoConnect will share editorial features, digital issues and special online programming from NeoCon partners and host a “From the Community” blog series. A robust social media program beginning in May will complement the NeoConnect hub and feature product spotlights, exhibitor takeovers and engaging interviews on Instagram TV.
“NeoCon has brought the commercial design industry together every June since 1969. Even though we can’t be together physically this year, it remains important for us to continue to conduct our businesses, share ideas, introduce new product concepts, learn from one another, support our community and celebrate when and where possible. We hope the industry will join us this year via NeoConnect,” says Byron Morton, VP of Sales for NeoCon.
NeoConnect will remain active with updated content through Fall 2020. Full details including a schedule of online programming will be available mid-May. NeoConnect will officially launch at neocon.com on June 1.
Access to showroom and exhibitor press releases, as well as NeoConnect press releases and images will be available in the online press room on neocon.com. For additional showroom, exhibitor and general NeoConnect news, images, and real-time information, follow NeoCon Shows on the following: Facebook (@NeoConShows), Twitter (@NeoCon_Shows), and Instagram (@NeoCon_Shows).
