IIDA AT NEOCON 2020 PROGRAMMING UPDATES


 
IIDA IS YOUR COMMUNITY
 
We are committed to the health and safety of our members and the broader community, and per recent public health regulations and ongoing discussions with theMART and industry leadership, it has been decided that NeoCon 2020 will be cancelled, with the show resuming in June 2021. 
 
We know that our priorities have shifted and we remain committed to the IIDA community and to being a valuable resource during these trying times. As our Executive Vice President and CEO Cheryl S. Durst, Hon. FIIDA, shared in her message, “IIDA has been and always will be your community. We are strengthened by our common passion for design and our celebration of humanity. Now more than ever, the world requires what design so abundantly endows—grace, civility, compassion, clarity, connection, common sense, empathy, well-being, healing, and hope.”
 
We are committed to staying accessible and connected during this time and to supporting each other. We will communicate any and all updates regarding our NeoCon-related programming and events as soon as new information is available. Please reach out to support@iida.org with any questions or needs.
 
Kind regards, 
 
Team IIDA

Held every June at theMART in Chicago since 1969, NeoCon serves as the commercial design industry’s launch pad for innovation—offering ideas and introductions that shape the built environment today and into the future.  Due to the escalating global health situation, NeoCon 2020 has been cancelled and will resume in June 2021.
