Pros and Cons of Award Ceremonies in Chicago

Chicago is top-rated when it comes to just about all of the "big city things" including sports, culture, and food. Like any other major metropolitan area in the nation, The Second City has both advantages and disadvantages.


  • Excellent food
    Chicago is home to 24 Michelin-starred dining establishments and 58 restaurants that have been accorded the Michelin Bib Gourmands award. Your awards ceremony menu is taken care of with a catering company in Chicago handling it.

  • An effective public transit system
    Most neighborhoods in Chicago have everything you could need within walking distance but if you need to run errands, the city's public transit system proves highly effective. Your guests will have the choice of about 130 bus routes and 145 train stations.

  • Sports
    Professional baseball, soccer, football, and basketball teams hail from Chicago. The sports frenzy makes the city an ideal place to host a sports-related activity or event.


  • Rough winters
    Winter weather in Chicago involves below-freezing temperatures, blistering winds, and grey skies. The howling winds and flooding that happens once the snow melts don’t provide the best conditions to host an event.

  • Traffic

  • Parking

  • It's an expensive city
    Compared to other big cities, the cost of housing is affordable in Chicago. However, when compared to the national average the cost of living in this city is higher. You'll feel the pinch with costs related to transportation, utilities, and groceries.

  • Pollution
    The city's waterways are known for their history with pollution, and some homeowners have had the unpleasant experience of dealing with the aftermath of basements flooded with sewage. It should guide your decision when considering outdoor awards ceremony venues in Chicago.
