Good venue for this event. McCormick's is huge, not sure if there is somewhere else this large of a venue could happen. They do a great job for the last 4 years I have attended

In town for business for the Lightfair show. The place was well mapped out and each member of the staff was friendly. It was a positive experience all the way around. They did a tremendous job putting on this event.

This venue has the size to comfortably fit several thousand of your best friends at a conference, while still offering opportunities for intimate conversation.

Great layout, friendly staff and great variety of food. However, the salad you pay $11 for is very small. The coffee isn't great at their little kiosks - so go to the Savor or one of the restaurants. The Kiosk stands can't give itemized receipts,...More

Good layout, well staffed and organized to accommodate even very large conventions. Lots of parking available, though some will require a bit of a walk.

No wonder McCormick is the largest convention center in the U.S. I attended a four-day conference and left exhausted of moving from a room to the other. I wish I had rollerblades on :-)) I don’t know why, but no coffee shop over there was...More
