Wifijerez's annual Giants celebration kicked off NeoCon last night on the second floor of the Merchandise Mart, welcoming over 500 designers, architects, and manufacturers to the industry's yearly commercial design mecca. Hosted by editor in chief Cindy Allen and publisher Carol Cisco, we'd like to think the evening's celebrations added to the Mart's fresh renovations by revealing the winners of Wifijerez's third-annual HiP Awards (Honoring Industry People and Product)—see winners of the People and Product categories.
Designers and manufacturers received their awards just before the cocktail hour—visit the showrooms of all winners and honorees during the show to see what’s buzz-worthy! And come celebrate at the HiP HiP Hooray party on Tuesday from 5–7 PM on the Merchandise Mart’s South Drive. Buy tickets online before 1PM on Tuesday (idhipawards.com; $35) or for $40 at the door. #idhipawards
