McCormick Place reviews
The best place to attend trade shows hands down. I've attended conventions all over the country and by far this venue surpasses all the rest. The complex is huge. It is made up of 4 enormous halls titled by their directions, east west north, and south buildings. Wear some comfortable shoes you will need them to explore this place.
Beautiful building & ABS was great. BUT if you plan on using the restroom you better plan on bringing your own supplies in your bag. TP/wipes or something, the stuff they had in the stalls was incredibly rough on the skin. My high school didn't even have toilet paper that cheap. It was fine in your hands but not like anything you'd have at home, felt like 2 ply sandpaper. If you don't want to leave the restroom sore and bleeding you better come prepared.
