NeoCon presents a topical new virtual programming series that builds off the show’s 2021 theme “Design Anew” and leads into the in-person event scheduled for October 4–6 at theMART in Chicago.

This spring, event organizers have developed an online offering with live sessions from March–May and dozens of expanded virtual modules, including CEUs, taking place throughout June and October—all designed to complement the on-site event.

The March–May schedule will feature two-day programs centered around some of today’s most pressing design challenges and opportunities. March will focus on “Designing the Next Workplace;” April will shine the spotlight on “Designing Well,” and May will explore “Designing in a Digital World.”

Lisa Simonian, Vice President of Marketing, theMART, says, “We are all adapting to a new world, responding with fresh ideas on design and its effect on how we live and work. As we continue to virtually connect with the NeoCon community, we wanted to provide educational sessions leading up to the show that are timely, essential, and thought-provoking. The March programming will take a deep dive into the future of the office and of work itself—from exploring the new office ecosystem, examining how other design sectors might influence workplace design, to rethinking how virtual and built environments can merge into one seamless experience.”

NeoCon 2021 will take place from October 4–6, 2021 at theMart in Chicago. Registration will open in June. Subsequent programming will be announced in the coming weeks. For more details and to register, visit
