How do I get to the hotel from the airport?

Chicago has two airports - O'Hare (ORD) and Midway (MDW), which are both 15-20 miles from Downtown Chicago. Taxi service is readily available from both airports and runs about $35 one way.  Depending on the time of day, a cab will take approximately 30 minutes

GO Airport Express offers airport shuttle services between Chicago area locations and O'Hare and Midway Airports. Efficient, safe, and economical airport shuttles depart from O'Hare and Midway Airports every 15 minutes for Chicago downtown and many suburban locations. Ground transportation is arranged by making a reservation.

The Becker's staff is available to assist; however, there will not be a company available to help with booth setup.  If you'd like to hire a company to provide this service, you are welcome to do so at your own expense.  Please let the Becker's Events Team know if you need recommendations of local companies. Email us at events@beckershealthcare.com.

Can my booth host a raffle?

Absolutely!  We encourage all booths to host a raffle on Thursday or Friday evenings to encourage attendees to stop by and leave business cards.  If you plan on participating in a raffle, please email events@beckershealthcare.com to let us know what you'll be raffling.  We will then arrange a time to stop by your booth on Thursday or Friday evenings and announce the winners.

Business casual dress is recommended. Chicago's average weather in June is around 70-80 degrees; however, this can fluctuate dramatically.
