The Palmer House - Chicago

The iconic Palmer House has the most amazing atmosphere and 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). Months of planning went into the selection of the Palmer House for this conference. We wanted a location that would allow our attendees to shoot in the rain or shine while being cozy enough to allow for high levels of interaction and openness.
