    Went for the Chicago Food Truck Festival, yummy! The food was pricey so I'd recommend knowing which trucks you'd like to buy from before going.

    Don't mind shows here,but food court awful & overpriced. Why was Jamba Juice closed,b4 end C2E2? I'll also warn McD's here DOESN'T serve breakfast all day. Eat before u travel McCormick, if possible!

    Great place for a convention! If your event has bus service, I recommend that over the long taxi lines

    Wear comfortable shoes if you're going to be standing on the convention floor for a while. Brutal on the feet.

    Way too much room to walk around here. My feet always hurt after a trade show here. Have lunch in the cafeteria, lots of food choices but it will cost you almost $20.

    The parking situation left much to be desired. Always come early to the event. The building(s) itself is quite nice and open. The opposite of the parking lot.

    Don't just tell a friend to meet at Starbucks - you'll need to specify (1) the concourse of the West Building, (2) on level 2.5 of the South Bldg or (3) on the level 3 show floor of the North Bldg. Read more

    Very clean place. Parking staff, not the friendliest. Pretty secured place for the most part. Be sure to look at the touchscreen TV where you can take pictures and send them to people.

    As someone who works a lot of trade shows I tip my hat to this venue. Well planned space, attractive clean food court with decent selections. Free wifi and very easy to get a cab if you need one.
