See where else people are celebrating

As a leader in the meetings industry, you know that meetings and conventions pave the way toward some very impressive statistics. From the more than $280 billion that meetings pump into the US economy each year to the nearly 1.8 million people who are employed by the industry, the meetings industry is a mighty monetary engine.

However, numbers, dollar signs and bullet points only tell one chapter of the story. There is also a cast of unsung heroes who keep the industry’s pages turning in a positive direction. You’re invited to help celebrate those professionals at The Chicagoland Four Star Awards Ceremony on April 16. As meeting professionals in other meeting destinations around North America come together for the inaugural North America Meetings Industry Day, you can join your peers from the Chicagoland community to shine the spotlight on the people who make meetings mean business.
