Neocon 50 is just around the corner and this one is going to be special. Given the 50-year anniversary of NeoCon, they’ve put together a stellar lineup of educational sessions, exhibitors and special presentations to commemorate the event.

We’ve gone through the extensive programming, so that you don’t have to, in order to bring you this year’s can’t-miss sessions and events.

Before You Get There:

Before you get to Neocon 50, be sure to check out the Retrospective that was created in partnership with Metropolis Magainze.

A look at the show over the years is also a great look at how design has changed the last half-century. You can view the Retrospective here.

The Marquee Presentations:

Whether you’re an architect, interior designer, facility manager or just a tech-nerd – you are definitely not going want to miss the session with Wired’s Editor-in-Chief, Nick Thompson. Tech is weaved into our environment more than ever – from home to the office and Nick will break down ways that tech enhances our lives.

The Seminars


If you don’t know about the WELL Building Standard by now, then what are you doing at Neocon!

In all seriousness, this is a great session to attend for those that are looking to learn about WELL, as {well} as, those that are familiar with the certification and want a firsthand look at a top performing project.

The team from Perkins+Will will be presenting, so be sure to jot down any questions you have for them.

This is set to be an important session as we’ll see this theme throughout Neocon 2018 and the rest of the year in general. As we look at the next phase of the open office, Kay Sargent, who we’ve profiled before – will be leading the session on what’s next: the immersive environment.

The Tech

2018 is the year of wireless charging and NeoCon is getting in on it in a big way. The 7th floor will feature Dekko’s wireless charging stations. If you want to learn more about wireless charging – check out our spec guide. ChargeSpot installs below the surface to keep design completely seamless!

The Party

We know you won’t miss this one – but just in case – the ‘Future Is’ opening night party is going to be a blast. And who knows what surprises the show organizers have planned to commemorate Neocon 50?!
