Major Chicago Conventions, Meetings and Events

If you have any flexibility in the dates on which you wish to travel, it is always best to make sure you are not choosing a time to go to a city during a major convention or other major event (unless, of course, that is the reason that you are going!). Chicago can have a number of large gatherings each year, but also be wary of the weeks where there are multiple intermediate sized conventions or other major events, including sporting events, festivals, concerts and parades. Chicago has a large amount of hotel rooms, however prices and availability can be effected during a large Chicago convention or major Chicago event. In addition, the effect on Chicago's O'hare International Airport and Chicago's Midway Airport, flight delays and flight overbooking, traffic, cabs and shuttles can effect your travels, and increased volume can also translate into increased time and cost. If a Chicago event is occurring in the part of the city where you are heading, traffic can be significant. We have listed some of the largest conferences, and some additional useful links to help you anticipate crowds and expect delays. For a complete list of Chicago Events, you can check out the Chicago events calendar from the official visitor site for Chicago. You may also want to check out the Chicago convention calendar as well. The Chicago events and festivals can effect your Chicago travels, but if you have a flight delay, you might even want to go to some of them yourself!
