NeoCon, a leading global venue for innovations in commercial interiors and products, has announced new dates for its 2021 edition. Initially scheduled to take place from June 14 to 16, the Chicago trade show will now be hosted at theMart on October 4 to 6, 2021.

According to a release issued by the organizers on October 27, the revised schedule is informed by extensive industry consultation and public health guidance. “After ongoing discussions with key industry constituencies, as well as careful consideration of CDC forecasts and other reporting, it was determined that the change to fall dates for 2021 would be more favourable for a safe and successful in-person show,” states the release.

NeoCon management will continue to closely assess the changing environment ahead of the 2021 edition. Alongside the revised dates, a number of additional measures are already being evaluated, including adjusted hours to ensure safe attendance flow. In the meantime, extensive safety protocols at theMart — including optimized air filtration and circulation, frequent disinfection and cleaning of high touch surfaces, electro-static spraying of elevators and other public spaces — are helping to ensure the venue meets the highest standards. More details regarding safety protocols at next year’s show are set to be announced in the spring.
