Gallery Space Options in Chicago

Finalizing your Chicago gallery space is only the first step to ensure a smooth event. There are many more factors that go into creating a successful event. We highly recommend hiring professional services to help with all this.

  • Caterers
    A gallery event requires a smorgasbord of hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and drinks. And depending on the size of the audience, this task can be hard or impossible for a handful of people. This is where a professional catering outfit comes in. Not only will they create food on par with the foodie hub that Chicago is, but they will also provide cleanup services after.

  • Decor
    Depending on the type of event being hosted at the gallery space in Chicago, the decor requirements will greatly vary. Whether it’s flowers, artworks, furniture, linen, equipment, or thematic installations, a decorating service will help bring your vision to life.

  • Photographers
    Today’s world lives online as much as it does offline. Creating memories has never been easier. This is why hiring a photographer is of paramount importance. Additionally, some galleries might showcase installations and artworks that you may not be able to use for any official purposes. A photographer will help be mindful of this while making sure all guests look great.

  • Transportation Services
    A no-brainer if your gallery event is serving adult beverages, hiring a transport service will not only bring your guests on time but will also ensure they get back without any problems. Chicago offers plenty of rideshare and car rental services you can choose from.
