What Looks Promising at NeoCon 2024 & Design Days at Fulton Market

NeoCon 2024 is set to take place at The Mart in Chicago, Illinois from the 10th to the 12th of June. Happening simultaneously, the Design Days at Fulton Market will also showcase the best commercial interior design products have to offer.

Just a mile apart from another both these locations have a lot to offer for the average design aficionado. While The Mart is the world’s largest commercial building and design center and one of Chicago’s premier international business locations, Fulton Market has traded its former ‘warehouse district’ image for a livelier, more hip design destination in the past few years. The Mart spans 4.2 million square feet, two city blocks and 25 stories, and Fulton Market is a sprawling 3.2 square feet. But nevermind the size – NeoCon 2024 is steeped in legacy, but Fulton Market Designs is a ‘Gen-Z’ trade fair. If you are visiting one, might as well visit the other.

Here’s what not to miss..
