Chicago Marriott Schaumburg is undergoing a multimillion-dollar renovation to elevate the overall guest experience. All guest rooms, public areas, new restaurant and bar, lobby, function areas, fitness room, indoor and outdoor pools as well as the exterior of the building and the parking lot will be renovated.

"Our hotel offers the newest and innovative event spaces and overnight accommodations in Schaumburg with high level quality of service to clients and event planners," says Lukasz Sobczak, director of sales for the hotel. "The hotel is one of the largest in the area, however, we provide customized, personalized and intimate experiences for groups ranging from 10 to 1,000."

Sobczak says the hotel has retained a large amount of repeat clients over the years due to continuously meeting and exceeding planners' expectations. Additionally, the central location, just minutes from O'Hare International Airport and several Fortune 500 companies, makes Chicago Marriott Schaumburg a popular destination for meetings and events.

The hotel offers brand new, reimagined and comfortable meeting spaces, and the hotel restaurant's chef oversees all banquet food operations to provide high quality culinary experiences.

"We're the most newly renovated hotel in Schaumburg," Sobczak says. "The primary meeting space is conveniently located on a ground/first level with tall ceilings and no obstructing areas. Our pre-function area features a wall of windows and skylights providing highly desired and refreshing natural light."

Chicago Marriott Schaumburg also boasts a unique and seasonal venue situated by a nearby lake and surrounded by lush greenery, giving it a resort feel, Sobczak adds.

Toni Roberts, award winning executive pastry chef at theWit Hotel Chicago, is satisfying everyone’s sweet tooth this holiday season with the reintroduction of an exclusive Thanksgiving to go dessert menu. Whether you’re currently embracing everything pumpkin spice or a self-proclaimed chocolate connoisseur, the menu features a little something for everyone.

 

As with most facets of the meetings and events industry, the art of managing an event budget is a true balancing act. And while it’s easy to get wrapped up in the nitty-gritty, Eventbrite revealed a pleasant surprise in its 2018 Pulse Report (which surveyed 1,200 planners), finding that event budgets overall appear to be on the rise. But where exactly are those budget dollars going these days and how can planners best spend to craft memorable moments?

 

According to the Illinois Department of Agriculture, about 1.5 million Illinois workers are employed in the food and fiber system, ranking it as one of the top states in dependency on agriculture. The state’s 72,500 farms utilize 75 percent of Illinois land, including some of the most fertile soil in the world. While nicknamed “The Prairie State,” Illinois is truly a land of plenty and a hub for agritourism—with some of the largest agriculture-focused events (holding the potential for major economic impact) taking place inside its borders.
