CHICAGO — NeoCon, the leading platform and event for the commercial interiors industry, June 10-12, 2024 at THE MART in Chicago, invites "thought-leaders" to submit proposals for its onsite and virtual programming, as well as its year-round educational offerings.

“NeoCon is the epicenter of commercial interior design––a hub where people, products, and programming converge to inspire innovation,” said Nubia Henderson, NeoCon’s Director of Programming. "Our programming has earned a reputation for providing invaluable insights into the subjects, trends, and movements across the commercial design sphere and beyond.”

Proposals will be considered for both virtual and in-person Continuing Education Unit (CEU) sessions across a wide range of educational categories including Workplace, Healthcare, Hospitality, Wellness, Technology, Sustainability, and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI), among others. Online CEU sessions will be pre-recorded and streamed on the NeoCon Learning Hub. Submissions will also be selected for Onsite CEUs, as well as NeoCon Talks and Onsite Workshops, which will provide a more in depth and hands-on educational experience. Submissions will be accepted through January 15, 2024. Comprehensive details and submission guidelines can be found at
