Material Health Matters: a Transparent Conversation

Shaw Contract Group to host Material Health CEU at NeoCon:

Focusing on continuous product improvement and engaging in local conversation around material health encourages manufacturers and the design community to promote leadership in sustainable efforts – making a greater impact within the built environment.

On June 16, during Chicago’s annual NeoCon expo, Shaw Contract Group will lead an engaging discussion with an audience of architects and designers on how to identify and specify sustainable product selections for the spaces they design.  The discussion will focus on current tools and programs pertaining to material health.

The event includes lunch and provides attendees an opportunity to earn CEU credit (IDCEC, AIA and GBCI qualifying for Health Safety Wellness). The event is limited to a small audience, but designers and architects who will not be at NeoCon can request a scheduled Material Health documentary and CEU by contacting their local Shaw Contract Group Account Manager.

NeoCon is the largest commercial interiors show in North America, taking place at The Merchandise Mart in Chicago since 1969.  The three-day event is the premier platform for connecting, learning and doing business in the industry, and attracts 50,000 design professionals and 700 exhibitors.  Visit www.neocon.com for more information.
