Hyatt Regency Chicago recently announced the opening of new meeting and event spaces further expanding its vast meeting and event space to 240,000 square feet of flexible space. The 22 new, modern meeting spaces and boardrooms offer a variety of options for today’s meeting planners and accommodates groups from 8-250 people.

The East Tower of the hotel now boasts an additional 10,297 square feet of meeting space. The new meeting spaces and boardrooms are ideal for smaller meetings and breakout sessions. The spaces feature common lounge areas including a wet bar and communal table, which offer a contemporary and energetic environment for lively pre or post meeting discussion.

The West Tower of the hotel has added 1,608 square feet of meeting and event space. The new multi-use space features boardrooms that boast natural light with windows overlooking Upper Wacker Drive and the Chicago River, as well as The Gallery featuring communal work stations and lounge seating. The area also features The Living Room, a new restaurant lounge with a full bar and a small plates menu.

Hyatt Regency Chicago’s contemporary event space can be customized for the smallest to the largest groups. The Grand Ballroom, Crystal Ballroom, Regency Ballroom, and Plaza Ballroom complement 71 meeting rooms and the 70,000 square foot Riverside Exhibit Hall. An Event Concierge provides assistance from start to finish ensuring all events run seamlessly.

Through Meetings On Demand, meeting planners can easily coordinate meetings at Hyatt Regency Chicago with a new tool that makes booking a meeting or event easier than ever. Everything can be booked and confirmed in minutes; meeting room availability and pricing can be seen in real-time availability; meeting requirements including food and beverage, and AV equipment needs can be submitted; and guestrooms can be reserved for all attendees.

If Willy Wonka planned a meeting break, this is what it might look like: blueberry treats that can be plucked from the walls, cheesecake pops dipped in Nerds, everlasting gobstobbers in every flavor and strawberry (or snozberry?) smoothie shots. This sweet idea comes to life complete with an accompanying soundtrack at LondonHouse Chicago this fall, thanks to Executive Chef Jacob Verstegen, who was inspired to create the package after an interactive dining and music experience at Elizabeth Restaurant.

 

When it comes to small meetings in Chicago, planners have a lot of options.

 

The Quad Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau (QCCVB) recently announced that Dave Herrell has been named the new president and CEO, with an official start date of October 8, 2018.
