Hotel and Venue Information
The 2017 conference will be held in downtown Chicago at the Gleacher Center, which is operated by the University of Chicago's Graduate School of Business. We have used the same venue for the previous three meetings with great success.
Located on North Cityfront Plaza Drive, the Gleacher Center is just north of the Chicago River and within easy walking distance of many historic sights and attractions, including Navy Pier, Wrigley Building, and the Magnificent Mile. There is also a wide selection of restaurants, bars, and venues for those interested in exploring Chicago's jazz, blues, and other musical offerings.
The conference has secured a block of rooms at the recently completely renovated Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel. Our Congress block rate is $190.00 per night plus taxes, and reservations must be made on or before Wednesday March 22, 2017.
