I am considering driving down to neocon next week for a day or two to visit the neocon show and further aquatint myself with the contract furniture industry. Having never been I wondered if there was anything that a newbie needed to know about the show.
I have been to ICFF but have been told that the 2 shows are quite different.
One full day was enough for me. The 2nd day is always wandering around trying to find interesting stuff.
one nice thing about the show is that all the Big guys have their new stuff out…usually in prototype or mock up form. Then it takes many more months before you actually see it on the market. Keep you eyes peeled for designers too. I met Niels Diffrient (sp) at the Humanscale booth 2 years ago. he was just sitting there on one of his Liberty chairs.
I just posted my images taken from Neocon 2008… I think I might have goton that one Haworth chair mixed up. Could not locate the new stuff on the manufactures websites. Correct me if 'wrong anyone. thanks in advance.
