Tarkett participated in a very successful 2018 NeoCon in Chicago, IL on June 11-13, 2018. During NeoCon’s 50th year as the leading platform for commercial design, Tarkett was honored as an award-winning manufacturer by three leading media companies, designed its 10,000 square foot showroom to envelop visitors in Neoculture – this year’s thought leadership theme – providing interactive experiences and thought-provoking conversations, and received an overwhelming response on social media and through the press.
“This year far exceeded our expectations. We doubled the traffic to our showroom from 2017 to 2018, and it was packed for the entirety of the show. Over 5,000 visitors from 3,000 companies, both A&D customers and end users alike, visited the showroom. They were thrilled to see what was new and exciting at Tarkett and were very engaged in our Neoculture panel discussions, interactive displays and events. And because we were lucky enough to be honored by all three major design publications for our products – 8 in total – our customers have been emailing us post-NeoCon for samples for their projects. An exciting time for our entire team.”
