So every other year, WEFTEC is held in Chicago. Been some time since in town so was looking forward to visiting. The one thing about Mcmormick and that is it's size. The venue is gigantic and we'll designed. Unfortunately not much can be found in the area (restaurants, wtc.) But still great place for a show.

Big space... lots of walking to get to various locations. Food court was confusing and spread out on multiple levels (dome of which were difficult to get to).

Here with my wife for the AUA Convention. This place is huge! The event center staff really do their best to keep things picked up, organized and clean.
It is a fantastic location for an event the size is AUA.
Well done Chicago!

We had a convention there lasting several days. I have been to many conventions, and most if not all convention centers have food options throughout, it's must when you have several thousand people gather, with no eateries in the immediate vicinity. This center however had a food court that was simply closed. The only option was one coffee vendor, of course that one had a humongous line to wait. Our group had to bring some vendors from outside, but those vendors had very limited options of food and drink - even having those onboard, the experience was underwhelming compared with other convention centers I have been to.

What I absolutely "hate" about this place is the Starbucks monopoly and having to stand in line for overpriced average brew. Well, and then you go to the Hyatt and this "proudly brewed" stuff is the only choice you have. Oh well.

Attended a show and paid a lot of money for a very run down and tired facility. Bathrooms were disgusting, other exhibitors complained as well. Center needs to deep clean the facility and make it appealing again. It has a fantastic setting, but it needs to be improved. It is not worth money and the Union Hasle to get your tradeshow materials in and out.

If you are looking to hold a conference, keep looking. Getting from one side of this complex to the other is extremely difficult and requires moving between floors multiple times. The facility lacked seating - participants were sitting on the floor waiting for their sessions! Elevators were hard to locate. Signage was poor. Restrooms were not kept clean: trash was overflowing onto the floor, lack of napkins. Lack of available restroom facilities for that size building. Audio/Visual quality was quite poor.
