NeoCon 2018 was a great success for Steelcase and their family of brands. For the first time, Steelcase, Coalesse, Turnstone and their extensive new network of partners were together in the newly redesigned Steelcase showroom in Chicago. Their show stealing experience earned them top honors as Best in Competition and Best Large Showroom category winners in the IIDA/Contract Magazine Showroom and Booth Design Competition.
