The Woodfield Chicago Northwest Convention Bureau (WCNCB) announces the publication of its 2013 Visitor Guide. The new issue showcases eight communities in the Chicago Northwest region and provides a detailed directory of accommodations, attractions and dining options for visitors. New travel tips are provided to alert travelers to best transportation solutions while visiting Chicago Northwest.

120,000 copies of the 2013 Visitor Guide will be distributed to over 280 locations. These destinations include regional hotels, Illinois highway tourist information centers, O’Hare Airport, Union Station, Gurnee Mills, McCormick Place, Chicago Cultural Center and Water Tower Visitor Center.

While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March.

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Jumpstarting tourism in cities across the country will be more complicated than simply opening doors again – especially in cities with large populations like Chicago. However, working together proves more effective, and in Chicago, more than 250 businesses are banding together to join Choose Chicago’s new initiative, Tourism & Hospitality Forward. It bolsters a safe reopening that encourages tourism as well as meetings and events in
