NeoCon East, taking place Nov. 9 and Nov. 10, is bringing a rich and timely educational conference to attendees of the show’s next edition in Philadelphia.

The design expo and conference for commercial interiors on the East Coast is the place to discover and experience the latest innovations and services. Offering more than 25 CEU accredited programs across a wide range of topics and vertical markets, the event is also a crucial moment for regional commercial interiors professionals to connect and learn. Presented by thought leaders from a range of disciplines, this year’s lineup includes sessions from the teams behind such pivotal projects as the redesign of the Sandy Hook School and the game-changing online tool for government buyers, Acquisition Gateway, to name a few.

Monica DeBartolo, director of programming, said, “The educational offerings are always an exciting, dynamic component of the NeoCon East experience, as it brings important, globally affecting topics to light. This year’s programming explores new and regional case studies which are designed to inform, as well as to invite further thought and discourse.”

Keynote speakers Marc Kushner and Ayse Birsel will headline and set the tone for NeoCon East’s educational programming. Seminar highlights include:

Community Engagement for Meaningful Design: The New Sandy Hook; Beyond Stereotypes; Getting Real About Different Generations in the Workplace; Moving Beyond Empathy Mapping; Your Gateway to Government-Wide Furniture Solutions; Promoting Health Through Workplace Design: Results from the "Stand Up to Work" Study; Beyond Balance: Additional Elements for Whole Design; The Rise of Great Expectations: Technology's Continual Impact on the Workplace and Florence Knoll-Defining Modern.
