The Donald E. Stephens Convention Center will welcome visitors for large events such as the Bears 100 Celebration Weekend in June and PLMA's 2019 Private Label Show in November, along with other niche conventions and conferences.
Convention center Executive Director Christopher Stephens said proximity to O’Hare Airport and hotels and the safety and cleanliness of the convention center are attractive for convention and conference organizers and attendees.
Stephens said many great events are set for this year, and some are repeat guests. The Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, Chicago World of Wheels and Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals are a few of the events that come back to the convention center every year, he said.
Stephens said the friendliness and conscientiousness of the venue’s employees are responsible for the convention center’s regular business. He said the staff understands the importance of tourism and leisure in the village.
“We want to be a great destination for any traveler to Rosemont,” Stephens said.
