CHICAGO

Hello! Chicago Destination Management

We are excited to announce we will be coming soon to Chicago!

Nestled along Lake Michigan, the Second City is first when it comes to meetings, offering planners and attendees large hotels, an advantageous location between both coasts, and a unique “big city meets local charm” vibe that’s unique among major cities.

Chicago’s McCormick Place is the largest convention center in the US, and ample space hotels ensures that there’s room to accommodate groups of all sizes. The city’s friendly locals and International vibe ensures that attendees will be met with genuine Midwest hospitality and upscale service they expect while allowing the local charm to shine through.

The culinary scene in Chicago is as storied as the city itself, originally founded as an agricultural shipping port, it’s even named after the Native American word for onion! Beyond beloved institutions like deep dish pizza, Garrett’s famous cheese and caramel popcorn, and the Chicago hot dog, you’ll find an ever-expanding restaurant scene home to restaurants from some of the world’s greatest Chefs. Unique immigrant neighborhoods, historic districts and a literal mile of upscale shopping and entertainment makes the Windy City a breeze to find the perfect venue for your group’s off-property or tour.
