The Chicago area serves as a center for many key industries and is home to 29 Fortune 500 headquarters, 12 Financial Times Global 500 headquarters, 10 Fortune Global 500 headquarters, and 400+ major corporate headquarters. Plus, its central location makes it easily accessible from almost anywhere in the world. Once you get here, inspire attendees with venues that highlight Chicago. Not only does Chicago have the largest and most flexible convention center in North America, McCormick Place, it is also home to many unique event spaces. For example, you can dine with a beluga whale at the Shedd Aquarium or mingle alongside a World War II submarine at the Museum of Science and Industry. When the city’s unique attractions are part of your business, meetings will become more than business as usual.
