The Hilton Garden Inn – Chicago O’Hare in Des Plaines, IL is conveniently located just north of both O’Hare International Airport and the bustling city of Chicago itself. It comes with a free, twenty-four-hour shuttle to and from O’Hare. An onsite restaurant makes dining in the Windy City a breeze.

The suburb of Des Plaines is full of things to do, with plenty of great restaurants and stores. From the neighboring suburb of Rosemont, it’s just an easy Metra-ride into the city to enjoy everything Chicago has to offer, from Navy Pier, to the Willis Sears Tower, and more!

We’ll also be hosting a pre-conference party on Friday, August 3, open to all conference attendees and their friends and families. This will take place from 6:00 to 7:30 PM at the Chippewa Woods Forest Preserve. You can bring a picnic dinner or participate in a group order to Jimmy John’s. (In case of inclement weather, an alternately dinner will be hosted at nearby Tiffany’s Restaurant.)
