NeoCon has announced a robust lineup of onsite, as well as virtual, educational presentations that will provoke important discourse and explore timely topics within the ever-evolving sectors of workplace, healthcare, hospitality, education and more.

The show, which will take place Oct. 4-6 at theMART in Chicago, has tapped influential thought leaders including Jeanne Gang, founding principal and partner, Studio Gang; Frans Johansson, author and CEO, The Medici Group; and Jackie Koo, founding principal, KOO, to deliver the 2021 in-person keynote addresses. These sessions will be complemented by in-person special programs led by Todd Heiser, principal and co-managing director, Gensler Chicago and Sheryl Schulze, principal and studio director, Gensler Chicago; Lauren Rottet, founder, Rottet Studio; and Marti Konstant, workplace futurist and best-selling author. There will also be a rich offering of virtual CEU sessions to watch live online or on demand up to 30 days following the event.

“Whether it is groundbreaking new ways of approaching wellness and sustainability, the growing convergence of the commercial and residential sectors, or the powerful intersections between innovation and strategy and diversity and inclusion, NeoCon 2021’s programming will offer an exceptional opportunity to come together, discuss, evaluate, and learn from each other," said Lisa Simonian, vice president of marketing, theMART.

2021 Keynotes and Special Programming will be presented onsite at NeoCon and also available for viewing via livestream. Onsite attendance will have limited capacity and programming registration is required. Livestreams will be available to all NeoCon registrants via NeoCon’s new online platform, the NeoCon Hub (and do not require separate registration).
