    We will continue to come back for c2e2 every year. Love that there are more food and drink options open since we first started coming to this convention. The spaces and meeting rooms were comfortable.

    I was here for MAS-ICNA and loved this venue! Food choices are a wee bit lacking but otherwise I felt like I was in a mall or airport. So much to do.

    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!

    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

    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.
