NeoCon East is an important trade show for the Federal Design Community because it features Government Interiors, which focuses on products and services geared to federal government procurement specifiers. From October 2008-July 2009, the government has already spent nearly $1.6 billion dollars on furniture and furnishings, which far exceeds the total amount spent during the entire 2008 fiscal year.

Federal stimulus money has already been allocated toward many government agencies which are responsible for specifying and overseeing money spent on multi-million dollar projects, such as BRAC and other shovel ready projects.

The federal funding package will also present new opportunities for A&D firms as well as industry professionals not already involved in government projects. NeoCon East showcases thousands of products on the GSA schedule, and attendees may learn more about GSA and how to get involved in government projects with:
· Free 60-minute seminars for government employees
· Free GSA-sponsored seminars
· The largest concentration of products and services for commercial interiors on the GSA schedule, making NeoCon East the most cost-effective method for attendees to source products for interior design projects
· Networking opportunities with design and facilities professionals from both the federal government and public sectors.
· A GSA Integrated Workplace Acquisition Center booth on the show floor to assist attendees with the federal government

With more than 250 exhibitors in 240,000 square-feet of exhibit space, NeoCon East sets the pace for the Mid-Atlantic contract furnishings industry, focusing on the Federal Design Community.
