For this year’s Neocon, which is to be held from June 11 to June 13 at Chicago’s famed Merchandise Mart, show organizers have lined up four incredible and informative keynote speakers including Richard M. Daley, former Mayor of the City of Chicago, Primo Orpilla, Principal of Studio O+A, Gary Lee, Principal of Gary Lee Partners, and Ian Schrager of Ian Schrager Company. Keynote programs are free to attend, open to trade professionals only, and merit 0.1 CEU credit. 
Richard M. Daley is the longest-serving mayor in Chicago’s history and earned an international reputation as a leading innovator in urban development, fiscal policy and government stewardship.
With his innate ability to communicate a vision for projects, Gary Lee begins the design process with a sense of how the environment will function for the client’s business, how the space will feel, and in planning that considers rhythm and volume before style. A pillar of the design community, Lee is equally respected by the clients who often return with multiple assignments and by a loyal team of collaborators who have worked closely with him for years.
Ian Schrager, creator of the boutique hotel concept, has achieved international recognition for concepts that have revolutionized both the entertainment and hospitality industries. His passionate commitment to the modern lifestyle has been expressed through a series of pioneering concepts.
Continuing education and professional development have always been an integral component of NeoCon. This year’s conference schedule includes 120 CEU-accredited seminars and industry association forums, giving trade professionals the opportunity to discover the newest trends and products from some of the top-names in the industry.
