Choose Chicago Ambassador
The purpose of the Ambassador Task Force is to help conference and convention attendees, exhibitors and management feel welcome and appreciated during their visit to Chicago. Over 150 partners participate in this program annually while supporting the hospitality efforts coordinated by Choose Chicago and enhances Chicago’s “We’re Glad You’re Here! ®” city-wide recognition program. 

Participation will provide Ambassadors with invaluable exposure within the city’s hospitality community and direct contact with meeting and convention attendees and exhibitors.  Informational meetings, team building, or networking events will be held once per quarter exclusively for Ambassadors.  Participants will also be able to take advantage of various programs offered by Choose Chicago throughout the year.
