Corcoran Expositions is one of the largest independent trade show organizers in the country, and they’re partnering with the Water Quality Association to assist with exhibit sales and related services for their upcoming trade shows.

“We look forward to working with the Water Quality Association in producing their upcoming trade show,” says Tom Corcoran, founder of the 26-year-old Corcoran Expositions. “We hope to work with them for years to come.”

Corcoran Expositions will assist the Water Quality Association, based in Illinois, with their 2017 and 2018 shows. WQA’s most recent show had 3,500 attendees and 270 exhibitors. The 2017 will be March 28–31 in Orlando, Fla. For more information, visit corcexpo.com.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. 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. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

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
