CHICAGO HILTON - MICHIGAN AVENUE

Months of planning went into the selection of the Chicago Hilton on Michigan Avenue as our venue for ClickCon. We wanted a location that would allow attendees to shoot in the rain or shine while being cozy enough to allow for high levels of interaction and openness.

The Hilton Chicago has an amazing atmosphere and outstanding amenities for our attendees. Best of all, this hotel is located in the middle of everything downtown Chicago has to offer (including expansive parks and dynamic cityscapes).
