    FROM THE Spring 2018 ISSUE
     

Beatrix Market is expanding. This spring, The Loop welcomes a third location of the Lettuce Entertain You healthy restaurant concept, which offers a wide selection of items for those with dietary restrictions. From self-serve salad, soup, a coffee bar and a hot food bar to chef-prepared sandwiches and snacks and the inviting Chocolate Closet, options are downright delectable. Meetings and events can also take advantage of complimentary planning services as well as enjoy a venue with fast-casual vibes and a local focus. Beatrix Market seats 50 and is available for full buyouts.

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.

Held at the United Center Sept. 21-23, 2018, the Laver Cup—a men’s tennis tournament pitting six top European players against six of their counterparts—marked the first time this major event has been held in the United States. Total event attendance was more than 93,000 people, with fans from around the world traveling to Chicago for an unforgettable experience with the game’s best players. “The Laver Cup was a huge win for Chicago,” says Kara Bachman, executive director of the Chicago Sports Commission.
