The 47th edition of NeoCon (June 15-17, 2015) will once again showcase the very best in commercial interiors. NeoCon 2015 will continue to attract fresh talent to its international stage. Among the 450 exhibitors on floors 7 and 8, roughly 100 are new to NeoCon. In addition, the permanent showroom floors of the Merchandise Mart will be buzzing as they welcome six new tenants whose thoughtfully designed showrooms will be strong additions to the world’s largest commercial building and one of Chicago’s premier global business locations.
