About Chicago

From inventing the Ferris wheel and Twinkies to reversing the flow of the Chicago River; Chicago will pleasantly surprise you with all of its accomplishments.

Chicago provided the stage for the first televised presidential debate in 1960 when the then Vice President Richard Nixon faced off with Senator John F. Kennedy. Speaking of firsts, the establishment of the Adler Planetarium in 1930 made the city the first in the western hemisphere to open a planetarium. The city also made history with the construction of the first skyscraper in the world in 1885 which is none other than the Home Insurance Building.

Pros and Cons of Discussion Venues in Chicago

The city that is a conversation piece in itself is the ideal place to host any type of discussion. Still, there are advantages and disadvantages that could potentially guide your thought process when looking for a discussion venue in Chicago.


  • Chicago is truly a multicultural city
    Chicago is an ethnically diverse and tolerant city. The accommodating and inclusive environment makes it an ideal place to hold meaningful discussions about diverse topics.

  • Shops operate 24/7
    Nightlife in Chicago means shopping and you can buy groceries even at 3 a.m. because most establishments operate 24/7. It gives you the needed flexibility when organizing a time-pegged discussion event that's equally time-consuming to plan.

  • Home rental is affordable
    If your discussion is tied to a multi-day event then participants won't have to worry too much about the cost of accommodation. The cost of housing in Chicago is surprisingly affordable whether you are buying or renting.

  • Chicago is very walkable
    Besides having a reliable public transit system, Chicago is a very walkable city. The participants of your discussion event have several options to navigate the city including bike-sharing through Divvy.

  • The friendly locals
    Chicagoans are known for their down-to-earth and genuinely friendly nature. They are the precise crowd you'd want to attend an open admission discussion event.


  • It's an expensive city
    Have a decent budget for your discussion event because Chicago isn't an affordable city. You'll spend the most on food, utilities, and transportation.

  • Traffic
    During rush hour, regular trips take three times longer. It's something worth having in mind when coming up with an agenda for your discussion event.

  • Parking
    Go for a discussion venue with on-site parking or make arrangements to provide it. Chicago has a terrible parking issue and you don't want it to dampen everyone's experience.

  • Violent crime
    Chicago has a long history of mobs and violent crimes. It's important to have proper security measures around your event and sensitize participants to be vigilant as they would anywhere else.

  • Bone-chilling winters
    Chicago winters are grey, snow-filled, and marked by heavy winds. Look for a venue with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
