Planning Your Chicago Corporate Entertainment Event
Chicago hosts thousands of conventions every year. It’s an easy location to reach from throughout the U.S., and it boasts a number of convention centers that are perfect for almost any event. One of the most prominent is the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. Boasting 840,000 square feet of exhibition space as well as parking for up to 8,000 cars, it’s the ideal location for almost any type of event. A skyway connects this venue to three different hotels, and it’s located just a few miles from the airport.
While guests are in Chicago, they can enjoy any one of a number of activities. The Museum of Hummels is actually located inside the convention center, and it plays host to a thousand different figurines, including one that is eight feet tall. Outside the convention center, guests can visit the famed Shedd Aquarium, where they’ll see 32,600 different animals inside, or visit the lake-front Navy Pier where they can shop, eat, or catch a local sight-seeing cruise to appreciate the beauty of the city from the water.
One of the toughest parts of planning a convention in Chicago is creating an itinerary for guests that ensures your message remains at the forefront of their minds throughout each day. One excellent way to do just that, though, is to consider adding personalized comedy to your day. Whether you schedule it over morning pastries or during one of your breakout sessions, a personalized comedy routine is the ideal way to engage your guests while still putting your theme at the forefront of their minds. A good corporate entertainer can incorporate the right keywords, topics and even personnel names to help connect with your guests. At the end of the day, they’re likely to remember the laughter and fun that incorporated the theme, making your event a winner.
