McCormick Place Events.

Chicago Private Yacht Rentals would like to extend a warm welcome to McCormick Place event host organizations and organizers, and their attendees, exhibitors and sponsors.

Committed to creating a great experience for every person, every time, Chicago’s McCormick Place continues to be the premier convention facility in North America.

Comprised of four state-of-the-art buildings, the North and South Buildings, the West Building and Lakeside Center, they form what many consider to be the economic engine that powers the entire convention and trade show industry.

Even though some events are not open to the public, you may find an organization of interest and if you decided to attend an event, give us a call for special Adeline’s Sea Moose “attendee” charter rates.
