I’ve been in Chicago about a year and I continue to be so impressed by the depth and breadth of great venues at which to hold Chicago corporate events.
Mixing, mingling and learning at the zoo, the planetarium, the fantastic public library and out-of-the-box creative event spaces sets the stage for successful meetings.
I’ve evolved from a …can’t drag me out of the house… attitude to a …woah, what’s this one gonna be like?… enthusiasm.
Here’s a list of reasons why I’m loving the many great choices for Chicago corporate events:
- Three great words that describe the way you’ll feel when you plan an event at Catalyst Ranch. I attended a conference here several years ago and the moment I walked in I felt at home. With creative, colorful walls and furnishings, you’ll relax enough to get some great work done. As a lifelong creative I’m a bit biased; but if you’re planning an event to get your corporate team out-of-the-box, this is the perfect spot.
- I attended a conference at the Lincoln Park Zoo and how cool was that. Actually quite cool, since they have great indoor event space where you can still enjoy the wonders of this great zoo.
- The Adler Planetarium was the setting for a late August cocktail party of event industry insiders I attended. Not only was the setting on the lake breathtaking, the moon exhibit opened my senses to the limitless possibilities in the universe. What a great set-up for a corporate meeting that might revolve around themes of problem-solving or innovation.
- To say the Harold Washington Public Library is an inspiring building and event venue is an understatement. You can have views, history, knowledge and fun all in the same place. I love the Winter Garden event space.
- With it’s rich history as a center for blues music, Chicago is a natural fit for a corporate songwriting event. Buddy Guy’s Legends and the House of Blues are both inspiring places to create, collaborate and kick back.
And if group songwriting isn’t your thing, plan dinner and a show after a day of corporate meetings.
