Leading commercial interiors event NeoCon is presenting a new and enhanced version of the Best of NeoCon Awards for its 2021 event, October 4-6 at theMART in Chicago. A show tradition since 1990, Best of NeoCon is NeoCon’s official juried awards program honoring outstanding new products from exhibiting companies across a wide range of verticals. The 2021 edition will feature 58 categories (17 new this year), a streamlined submission process, and a robust marketing campaign including new branding, programming, events and digital content.
Lisa Simonian, vice president of Marketing at theMART, remarked:
We’ve been working closely with Eileen McMorrow, Editor-in-Chief, The McMorrow Reports and longtime Best of NeoCon manager, as well as a number of industry leaders, to rethink, update and expand Best of NeoCon, while preserving its core strengths and influence as one of the most well-regarded awards programs for the commercial interiors industry. We’re excited to launch the new iteration and celebrate the 2021 Best of NeoCon winners at the show in October.
All Best of NeoCon entries will be evaluated by a diverse jury of leading architects, designers, specifiers and facility managers. These carefully selected industry leaders have expertise that spans commercial, healthcare, institutional and hospitality sectors. Jury recruitment is currently underway. Interested trade professionals who would like to be considered as a candidate to serve as a Juror (and who have not served before) can send an email with firm, title, and full contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Product submissions will open on June 1 and close on September 9. Exhibitors may enter any new products introduced to the U.S. market since NeoCon 2019.
