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.  

Andrea Hahn, general manager of Chicago’s new MB Ice Arena, knows her way around an ice rink.

 

Held at the United Center Sept. 21-23, 2018, the Laver Cup—a men’s tennis tournament pitting six top European players against six of their counterparts—marked the first time this major event has been held in the United States. Total event attendance was more than 93,000 people, with fans from around the world traveling to Chicago for an unforgettable experience with the game’s best players. “The Laver Cup was a huge win for Chicago,” says Kara Bachman, executive director of the Chicago Sports Commission.

 

Sports tourism in Illinois is much more than just a seat in the stadium.
