NeoCon® East will kick off with the show’s first Pecha Kucha Night (pronounced Peh-cha ka-cha) from 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., on Oct. 28, at Luckie’s Tavern in Baltimore, MD. The two-day show is set for Oct. 28-29 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD.
“From New York to Shanghai, Pecha Kucha is the hottest phenomenon where creative minds come together for an evening of lightning-fast presentations, networking and fun,” say NeoCon organizers. Pecha Kucha comes from the Japanese term for chit-chat. “In this very concise, yet casual, experience presenters show 20 images for 20 seconds a piece, revealing their work and inspirations to the audience,” organizers.
NeoCon East Pecha Kucha Night will feature presenters from a variety of professions, designers to artists, and topics will range from architecture to pure entertainment, including:
- Thorsten Bosch, co-organizer of Pecha Kucha, architect and graphic designer of visualized concepts in Chicago
- Stephen Copeland, a freelance designer since 1989 and founder of Copeland Studios based in Merion, PA.
- Cheryl Duvall will present “Wired to be Inspired.” Cheryl is founder of Avancé, LLC, a consulting firm linking workplace design with organization development.
- Peter Exley, moderator of Pecha Kucha, architect and co-founder of the nationally recognized practice, architectureisfun in Chicago.
- David London is a magician, an artist, and a human being. His work pulls from a variety of mediums, and explores the subjects of dreams, illusion, reality, and everywhere in between
