NeoCon 2024 Highlights

NeoCon 2024 proved to be a thrilling experience for SnapCab, showcasing our high-quality and customizable privacy pod solutions. The event was filled with excitement, networking, and a few significant highlights that we are delighted to share with you.

June 17, 2024

Designers attending NeoCon were very excited to learn about our established flexible manufacturing processes that embrace customizability. We empower designers to specify SnapCab privacy pods to exact dimensions, rather than being forced to choose from static product sizes, and this especially resonated. The designers we spoke to also found value in our ability to offer custom acoustics packages to really address the specific needs of a given environment. 

"Winning designs, engaging conversations, and endless innovations marked our journey at NeoCon 2024. It was a celebration of creativity and collaboration," said the SnapCab Team.

From revealing the winner of our 3rd Annual ‘Space To Be You’ Pod Design Contest to hosting the NeoCon Podcast Studio, powered by Surround, for the second consecutive year, the event was a testament to the versatility and appeal of our offerings. Whether you were there to see the unveiling of the Zen Garden Pod or to discover our booth on the 7th Floor, there was something for every design enthusiast and professional. 

The Unveiling of This Year’s Winning Pod Design

One of the highlights was the much-anticipated Pod Reveal Event. Nestled in the bustling North Lobby of the Merchandise Mart, we proudly presented the winner of our 3rd Annual ‘Space To Be You’ Pod Design Contest. This year’s stunning design, the Zen Garden Pod, was conceived by the talented Gia Phung. With a theme of Earth Tones, Phung’s design gracefully incorporated elements of moss, wood, bamboo, and rice paper, paying homage to her Japanese heritage.

With the help of winning this contest, Phung was offered a dream internship with HOK this summer. She spoke to this, saying, “I highly recommend this contest to all interior design students…it will help you stand out from all of the other students out there when you try to land a job in the future.”

For those curious to learn more about this remarkable contest or interested in participating next year, our contest information page provides details on submission guidelines and deadlines.

NeoCon’s Podcast Studio Activation

Another buzzing area of the North Lobby was in our podcast pod. NeoCon hosted a dynamic live podcast studio powered by SURROUND, a podcast network by SANDOW. For the second consecutive year, this dynamic space activated one of our state-of-the-art podcast pods. Throughout the show, it hosted interviews with an impressive lineup of industry thought leaders, including distinguished guests such as architects, designers, and visionaries who shared their insights and experiences.

Pod Customization Unlocked: Tailored Solutions for Every Designer

On the 7th Floor, our booth was a hub of creativity and innovation. Here, we invited attendees to explore how customizable our privacy pod solutions truly are. Whether it was size, finish, or furnishing, sound packages, and more, our pods provided endless possibilities to meet the exact needs of designers and architects. Attendees witnessed firsthand how we put creative freedom into their hands, allowing for bespoke solutions that meld functionality with aesthetic appeal.


Commitment to Inclusivity and Accessibility

One of the highlights of our presence at NeoCon 2024 was showcasing our commitment to inclusivity and accessibility. We understand that every individual has unique needs, and our ADA-compliant pods are a testament to that. Our privacy pods can be customized to cater to a wide range of diversity and inclusivity requirements.

The LinkPro Pod: Optimized for Video Calls

Another popular pod was our LinkPro, specifically optimized for video calls, and designed to make anyone look their best on screen. This pod featured dimmable face lighting, a height-adjustable desk, and impressive switch-glass technology. We turned the LinkPro into an interactive photo booth. Visitors had the chance to experience the pod and snap some fun photos.

We had an amazing time reconnecting with the design community at NeoCon 2024! We’re excited to keep leading the way in design innovation and personalized solutions. We hope you all enjoyed your time at the show, and for those who could not make it, I hope this gave you some insights.
