NeoCon East to be Held in Philadelphia

Vornado Realty Trust/Merchandise Mart has announced that NeoCon East will take place October 28 and 29 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. The design show and conference program for leading architects, designers, and facility managers affiliated with General Services Administration (GSA) has taken place in Baltimore for the past 12 years.

“NeoCon East has had many successful years in Baltimore. We took the decision to relocate very seriously to ensure that it offers the best solution for our show, our exhibitors and our attendees, says NeoCon Vice President of Sales Julie Kohl. “As we continue to grow, we recognize the need for a new home base that allows us to reach a larger, highly influential audience. We found that in Philadelphia.”

“This region has a very strong A&D community, a comprehensive network of design industry associations and is easily accessible from D.C., Baltimore and New York City—all under two hours away by train or car, says Lisa Simonian, NeoCon’s vice president of marketing. “Business is booming across key vertical industries including healthcare, education, hospitality, and office. We can’t wait to take advantage of all that this move has to offer.”

More information will be made available closer to the show date.
