At the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel, Meet Chicago Northwest, professionals gathered to celebrate Chicago Northwest tourism at the 2019 Annual Partnership Meeting. The flourishing Chicago Northwest area wasn’t the only cause for celebration. Partners of the Meet Chicago Northwest organization also convened to celebrate National Travel & Tourism Week and recognize the merit of five of the area’s hospitality industry professionals.

President Dave Parulo describes the meeting as a great way for their partners to build relationships. “I believe our partners find value in sharing quality time together.
