Call for submissions: Best of NeoCon 2022
NeoCon has announced that the submission portal to the 2022 edition of the Best of NeoCon competition is now open. The organization is NeoCon’s official awards program, which recognizes new products in 54 categories from exhibiting companies.
Best of NeoCon Director Eileen McMorrow continues to manage the competition, recruiting new jurors who will join veteran jurors during in-person judging in the days prior to NeoCon, June 13-15 at theMART. The final jury lineup and more details will be announced in April.
“As a juror I was able to see and experience the most cutting-edge products first-hand, before the show officially opened,” remarks Best of NeoCon 2021 Juror Mike Johnson II, a senior associate|senior interior project manager at Perkins&Will. “Evaluating the new solutions alongside other experienced jurors with varying perspectives, while connecting in-depth with the manufacturers was a great highlight of my NeoCon experience. That mutually-beneficial connection is at the core of every NeoCon, and is brought to the forefront during Best of NeoCon—it’s what makes the show and the awards program so valuable.”
Best of NeoCon winners will be unveiled at a live event at theMART on the first day of NeoCon, Monday, June 13. Winning companies will receive a distinctive award designed by Maiarelli Studio and produced by NeoCon exhibitor 3form.
