I have been to this trade show many times, and I have never been disappointed. I have not though been there since the show moved from the Rosemont Covention Center to it’s new location at McCormick Place, downtown Chicago.
It is my understanding that the Rosemont Center could simply no longer facilitate the growing show. Thus, my usual recommendation to stay at the adjacent Hyatt, is no longer a real option.
That said, the show is held in one of the greatest cities in the world, and just a stones throw from Conrad Hilton’s spectacular Palmer House. To stay anywhere else for this show is to me an insane notion.
When we were still known as Hair News Magazine, I had to collaborate with Vi Nelson PR several years in a row. They simply could not have been more accommodating or professional. Always a positive experience.
Enjoy the show. Perhaps I’ll see you there.
