The conference will be hosted at the historic Palmer House hotel, located in the heart of downtown Chicago.


Known as the Chicago hotel the world knows best, the Palmer House rose from the ashes of the Great Chicago fire to become the nation’s longest continually operating hotel. Palmer House has hosted U.S. Presidents, writers such as Charles Dickens and Oscar Wilde, and entertainers such as Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong. Located in the heart of the Chicago Loop, the Palmer House is blocks from the world-famous Art Institute of Chicago, Millennium Park (home to the iconic Cloud Gate, or, as we Chicagoans call it, “the Bean”), Lake Michigan, and a number of great restaurants and bars.

The Palmer House is BOOKED for stays during this time. However, there are a number of hotels near the conference location. (See the bottom of this page).
