    Hyatt's Happy Hyatt HQ

Opened in August 2017 inside the 54-story office tower at 150 N. Riverside Plaza, Hyatt Hotels’ new headquarters—known as Hyatt Hub—looks a bit like an urban hotel. And that was exactly the point for the new space, which welcomes hotel owners, consultants and suppliers daily. 

“The Hyatt Hub is warm and hospitable with an atmosphere of casual refinement and a mix of spaces for working meetings, dining and socializing,” says Kristen Conry, vice president of product and brand development for Hyatt. “[Its design is] much like the designs of our hotels and with the same purpose: to care for people so they can be their best.”

The Hyatt Hub also cares for the environment, earning LEED Platinum certification and joining Google in becoming among the first companies in Chicago to pursue WELL certification for the space, which sets requirements for a wide range of items, from air quality to sugar content in food and beverage offerings.

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.
