The seventh annual NeoCon® East brought in 7,331 attendees and 271 exhibitors to the Baltimore Convention Center, Oct. 28-29, 2009, once again making it a hugely successful show.
“The number of attendees and exhibitors at this year’s NeoCon East shows its strength as the premier show for the Federal Design Community,” said Mark Falanga, senior vice president, MMPI. “Exhibitors’ focus on government business is what makes the show one that is in demand, so much so that we are already experiencing a strong exhibitor re-sign rate for the 2010 show in Baltimore.”
Of the 271 exhibitors NeoCon East, hosted 163 were on the GSA schedule, 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. The show also featured Government Interiors, which focused on products and services geared to federal government procurement specifiers, and a GSA Integrated Workplace Acquisition Center booth on the show floor to assist attendees.
For the third year, NeoCon East featured the GSA's Integrated Workplace Acquisition Center on the show floor. The booth, which included a design by OTJ Architects using products from the GSA schedule, assisted attendees with the federal government procurement process.
NeoCon East offered 53 CEU-accredited programs, more than ever before, in 14 distinct educational tracks. It also offered free 60-minute seminars and free GSA-sponsored seminars to government employees.
NeoCon East is the premier design exposition for commercial interiors with a focus on the federal government. The show features two exciting days of new products, special events, educational offerings and guest speakers for industry professionals.
NeoCon East 2010 will return Sept. 29-30, 2010 to the Baltimore Convention Center. For more information visit www.neoconeast.com or call (800) 677-6278 (MART).
