Best of Neocon 2009 Wrap-up

Spending just one day at Neocon to see as much as possible wore me out, but I did get to see more than just furniture. The other items worth mentioning are posted below along with my list of tips for others attending in the future.

The stylish water dispenser.

Ovopur ~ Eco-friendly Water filter

Ovobar ~ Beverage Dispenser

Caviar ~ Water filter


Idea Paint ~ Dry-Erase Writable Surface

Digital Imaging

Angela Adams Collection ~ Breathable Non-PVC Wallcovering
Favorite Patterns/Color ~ Betty/Suede, Archie/Green, Archie/Orange


One way exhibitors lured in customers was by giving away cool carry-around bags that people went gaga over, me included. I gathered plenty of brochures and booklets to stuff in them as well. My bags I collected and the booklets inside them in photos above.

Tips for Surviving Neocon

  1. Wear comfortable shoes.
  2. Take the stairs which is faster and less crowded. {This is one of the reasons to wear comfortable shoes.} Taking the elevator was chaos.
  3. Don’t pick up too much product literature. The bags got heavy and tiresome to carry around. The same information is basically online.
  4. You may be able to sneak in bags with wheels. Neocon had posted that they were not allowed but people had them anyway.
  5. Use the Neocon navigator to plan your visit.
  6. Attend a lecture, tour, or seminar and pre-register since they tend to sell-out by the day of the event.
  7. Stay until after 4pm when the best drinks and food are provided by some exhibitors for free.
  8. Plan your stay early for the best hotels in the area and take in time to visit Chicago.

Next year’s dates are June 14-16. Click here to get the latest news and update. In the next few days, we'll post our Chicago favorites to "See, Eat, Shop, Play and Relax."

  1. The beverage dispenser is mighty slick. We might look into getting one for the secretaries office. I feel it would slip in well with the pastel walls.
