Adding NeoCon to that combo of course!  We are beyond excited to be back at the Merchandise Mart this June with a new and improved booth filled with our latest product innovations.” said Mark Leasure, President & CEO of GMi Companies. “Neocon is a direct line to the design world, allowing us to introduce our products to dealers, designers, architects, and our manufacturer reps in the most personal way.”

Ghent, the visual communications brand of GMi Companies, will be featuring four premium products at NeoCon, 2016. The show-stopper at this year’s show will be the expanded glassboard presence, showcasing Aria low profile glassboards in a variety of orientations as well as Harmony glassboards with standoffs. These two products are a must see and will be the highlight of this year’s booth.  

In addition to glass dry erase boards, Ghent will display the newly introduced Roam mobile whiteboard which is a contender for the 2016 Best of NeoCon Award in the Office Accessories category. Visitors will also be able to see the award winning LINK Hex powder coated steel whiteboards. LINK Hex won Silver in the 2015 Best of NeoCon awards in the Office Accessory category.

Waddell, the division of GMi that has proudly manufactured handcrafted trophy and display cases for over a century, will be featuring the newest addition to the timeless display collection, Vantage. Vantage is the most premium display case Waddell offers, providing a modern approach with minimal obstruction, open sight lines, and a sliding glass door. Vantage is up for two awards at NeoCon this year, The Best of NeoCon in the Office Accessories category and the Interior Design HIP Awards.

Finally,VividBoard, the GMi brand that manufactures custom, graphic dry erase boards, will be displaying a number of their healthcare focused products. One of those products includes InHarmony changeable glassboards, a 2015 Healthcare Design Silver Nightingale Award winner. InHarmony features a premium glassboard writing surface with a removable insert behind to communicate effectively to patients with different care plans or language needs.

GMi Companies will be hosting a number of events in their booth to engage with dealers, designers, and architects. First, GMi will be giving away an Apple Watch! Visitors will be challenged to share their answer to one of two questions and then taking a “selfie” and posting their answer to Twitter and other social media platforms using #GMiNeoContest.
