WITH McCORMICK PLACE AS ITS ANCHOR, CHICAGO'S EXCITING COLLECTION AT McCORMICK SQUARE IS GETTING EVEN BIGGER AND BETTER.

Chicago’s McCormick Place convention center district is burgeoning, thanks to exciting new developments within The Collection at McCormick Square that include hotels and an arena that have been eagerly anticipated by meeting and event planners looking to expand their options in Chicago.

The Collection at McCormick Square is an interconnected complex that includes the McCormick Place convention center (featuring 600,000 square feet of meeting room space, including ballrooms and theaters), the new 10,387-seat Wintrust Arena, the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place and the Marriott Marquis Chicago, all linked via enclosed sky bridges. In late 2018 the first-ever, tri-branded Hilton, which will combine a Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn and Home2 Suites, will join the complex bringing nearly 3,000 total hotel rooms to McCormick Place.

As the largest convention center in North America, McCormick Place offers a staggering 2.6 million square feet of exhibit space and offsets 100 percent of its electricity usage with clean, affordable wind energy. The entire McCormick Place campus is connected by dramatic pedestrian promenades and sky bridges, and offers visitor amenities that include dining and service shops. It’s made up of four state-of-the-art buildings: the iconic Lakeside Center, the connected South and North Buildings, and the West Building, which is LEED Certified and features one of the largest working rooftop gardens in the U.S.

Opened in late 2017, the new 10,387-seat arena features 22 luxury suites, serving as a general session hall for large business meetings or closing events for conventions, as well as a venue for concerts, sporting events and other major special events. Wintrust Arena also serves as home to the DePaul University Blue Demons men’s and women’s basketball teams, as well as the Chicago Sky WNBA team.

The newest addition to McCormick Square’s evolving hotel inventory is the first Marriott Marquis Chicago, which opened last fall. The stunning 40-story, 1,205-room hotel features more than 90,000 square feet of meeting space, including two 25,000-square-foot ballrooms. In addition, the hotel offers 63 event spaces and 48 breakout rooms. Marriott Red Coat Event Associates ensure that your meeting or event runs smoothly from beginning to end. A convenient pedestrian sky bridge links the Marriott Marquis to McCormick Place West and the next-door Wintrust Arena.
