Chicago

The place where leading event professionals
share their work with the world

The windy city is known for its sparkling lakefront, iconic architecture, trendsetting food scene and beloved sports teams - all which span the city's unique neighborhoods. With hundreds of stylish hotels, historic civic venues and urban raw spaces, Chicago is far from being a second city when it comes to memorable events.
