The 11th-annual edition of NeoCon® East returns to the Baltimore Convention Center, October 16 to 17, 2013.

"NeoCon® East has steadily grown since its launch in 2003," said Julie Kohl, Vice President of NeoCon® sales. "With current indications of a sold-out 2013 event, the upward trend shows no sign of stopping. We understand that a tradeshow ought to be eye opening, educational and generate key business connections.  While NeoCon® East can boast the largest concentration of products and services for commercial interiors on the GSA schedule, the show truly has a broader mission.

"The products on display cover the range of contract markets mirroring its sister show NeoCon®, added Kohl. "Products launched as prototypes at NeoCon® in June are ready for specification in October. NeoCon® East consistently delivers a rich experience in which architects, designers, facility managers and other key decision makers are literally able to 'see it and spec it.'"

Headlining this year's conference program are two of the industry's most insightful individuals:

Michael Graves,the renowned American architect and product designer will speak about the foundation of his design philosophy and how a personal healthcare tragedy focused his attention on improving healthcare experiences by design. Graves will present recent projects that range from military housing for returning wounded warriors, to a revolutionary transport chair for the acute care hospital, to performance textiles for all healthcare environments.

Suzanne Tick,the award-winning textile designer, weaver and principal of Suzanne Tick, Inc. presents her findings on the idea that great design comes from Surface Tension, where contrasting properties make for the most dynamic treatment of surfaces and materials. By looking at prevalent trends in architecture, interiors, product design, fashion and art, Tick will examine two major shifts in design thinking: Contrast Blocking and the Digital Habitat.
