Chicago

Chicago’s location, size, and services are well known and help make it a major center for conventions of all kinds. Perhaps less known to the general population is that we have a vibrant academic community with over 30 colleges and universities in our urban region, including the Illinois Institute of Technology, Northwestern University, University of Chicago, and University of Illinois. Many of these universities offer degree programs in computer science, design, digital media, psychology, and social sciences and feed a robust community of companies focused on user experience design, media and advertising, and product and service design. We believe that holding the Persuasive conference here will enable us to attract a large, new audience from local academia and industry in addition to the customary national and international attendance.

There are many options for entertainment and touring in the Chicago area, including walking and river tours of the city’s famous architectural innovations; dinner cruises on Lake Michigan; a lakeside museum campus that is the home of the Field Museum of Natural History, the Adler Planetarium, and the Shedd Aquarium; some of the country’s best jazz clubs and blues clubs; and a very active urban night life.
