The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) is returning to this year’s NeoCon with a focus on the “future of experience” and a lineup of keynotes, panels, roundtables, and celebrations.

The NeoCon conference is held annually at The MART, located at 222 W. Merchandise Mart Plaza in downtown Chicago. This year,  IIDA programming will begin on June 9, and lead into the three-day conference taking place from June 10 to 12, 2024.

“As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, IIDA is focused on the future of the design profession and the design industry, as well as the continuous evolution of our growing, vibrant design community — a story 30 years in the making,” said IIDA executive vice president and CEO, Cheryl S. Durst, Hon. FIIDA.

“For NeoCon 2024, IIDA is sharing knowledge and expertise, as well as a vision of where we are headed next as an industry, through the lens of human experience and design’s innate connection to and impact on humanity. From the contagious enthusiasm of our youngest cohort of designers to the leaders and visionaries of the moment, we are creating the future of design in real time — and we invite you to be a part of the journey.”

Those attending NeoCon will have a variety of IIDA events to take part in. While certain events will be held primarily for its members, programming will include jurying of the 20th Annual IIDA Showroom and Booth Design Competition, the IIDA 2024 annual meeting and a Revel in Design: IIDA Black-tie event on June 9.
