Have attended multiple conventions here. Not much to say, just a solid venue with hotels and restaurants close by. The area has improved now that they included the Entertainment District for going out after.

Attended the WW Chicago event at this Convention center, and was very impressed. Close to several hotels, and very well maintained! The convention center is huge, and offer a well spaced out event.

I was recently here with my family for a convention, and this was my second time here. I have been to a lot of convention centers and this one, by far is the nicest and cleanest one, I have every been too.

An excellent facility with loads of hotels next door that allow easy and comfortable access to the convention center through sky walks. Parking lot directly across the street is very convenient. The coffee shop in the entry is an added bonus.

This conference center is huge! The lobby is beautifully decorated and has several sitting areas. There are a lot of separate rooms for smaller classes/demonstrations. There were charging stations set up with comfy seats. I look forward to returning next summer.

This convention center is gigantic! I've attended several conventions there, from anime to antiques and it always runs smoothly. I love the fountain in the front!

I was there for a weekend convention, and stayed at the nearby Hyatt. The facility was clean and huge enough to accommodate very large groups. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes; I allowed 15 minutes to walk to the place I needed to be inside the convention center from my hotel. There is a Starbucks near the main entrance and... More
