Chicago's McCormick Place is not only the largest and most customizable convention center in the United States, but it continues to offer the premier meeting, conference and event space with around-the-clock upgraded amenities, green initiatives, and an ever-growing campus. Not to mention a city that boasts a wealth of resources—including a built-in attendance base and two international airports—and an exciting urban experience to energize your attendees.

McCormick Place has an astonishing 2,600,000 square feet of exhibit space, including the largest ballroom in the Western Hemisphere. Experience cost savings that extend from the 0.0% markup on food and beverage to an Exhibitor Bill of Rights that allows attendees to set up and dismantle.
