    A Picture Worth a Thousand Words

Many speakers like to imagine their words are painting an inspiring picture in listeners’ minds, which can actually be the case with visual note taking.  

Planners can work with professionals at Chicago-based Ink Factory to transform talks and event presentations into real-time drawings and visuals. This service, also known as graphic recording, helps audiences conceptualize and remember ideas better because the information is physically represented in front of them.

Ink Factory can turn a speech, lecture, lesson or training session into real-time visuals that stay with your company forever. Work with them to outline events and discuss branding and color palette before the big day, and then get files you can store for the future. “We provide digital images within two business days of the event,” says Teresa Rawlings, director of operations.  

Nearly 500 people from Illinois and the greater Midwest gathered at the stunning Palmer House Hilton Feb. 26-28 for the annual Illinois Governor’s Conference on Tourism. During the three-day event, attendees had the chance to hear from key industry officials, including an opening keynote from Carroll Rheem, vice president of research for Brand USA; a luncheon talk on crisis management and tourism security from Dr. Peter E. Tarlow, founder and president of Tourism & More; and an address by Cory Jobe, director of the Illinois Office of Tourism, at the closing breakfast.

New venues in this iconic neighborhood are a grand slam.
