Every year we get a chance to fete our own at Illinois Meetings + Events’ Best of Illinois readers’ choice awards, an event that honors the standout suppliers, vendors and venues of the year and also welcomes a new class of Hall of Fame inductees. In May, we celebrated a decade of the awards with our 10th annual edition that introduced new categories and winners and brought back some familiar faces. The party was held at the brand-new Pinstripes in River North, a gaming and dining venue that set the stage for all these tried-andtrue champions.

On March 6, nearly 200 meeting planners, event producers, experiential design experts and vendor partners gathered at Loyola University Chicago’s Damen Student Center to talk cutting edge tech trends, explore new educational topics and connect with friends old and new.
