As of now the PACK EXPO International and Healthcare Packaging Expo is scheduled for November 8-11, 2020 at McCormick Place, Chicago. As the event’s Official Hotel Reservation Office, Expovision is closely monitoring hotel partners’ COVID-19 response. The PMMI Tradeshow Department is actively working with its city partners to see how the state’s and city’s 5-phase reopen plans could potentially impact the largest packaging expo.
The city of Chicago is diligently following COVID-19 guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This includes Illinois state leaders, the Chicago Convention Bureau, McCormick Place and the Chicago Department of Aviation.
Expovision has reached out to its hotel partners for the latest information on their cleaning and safety protocols during the coronavirus, COVID-19, pandemic. Each major hotel brand has its own initiative: Hilton has the “CleanStay” global program, Marriott International started a “Global Cleanliness Council,” Venetian’s is the “Clean Commitment,” IHG Hotels & Resorts are reinforcing their “Culture of Clean,” and Hyatt launched the “Global Care & Cleanliness Commitment.” On May 4th Wyndham Hotels & Resorts announced their “Count on Us” initiative. On May 13th Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts opened a “Lead with Care” collaboration with Johns Hopkins Medicine International.
Across the board, the major hotel brands share these similarities on ensuring employees’ and guests’ safety during COVID-19:

Hotel scammers, housing pirates, room block poachers…however you refer to them, they have been a major problem in the convention industry for years. These are companies that masquerade as being the official housing partner for an event and sell room blocks that don’t actually exist. Their victims may pay thousands of dollars, only to arrive at the hotel and be told they don’t have a reservation.
Back in 2008, the American Society of Association Executives won a federal lawsuit against the hotel scammer Complete Event Planning, Inc. Despite this monumental win, third-party hotel scams are continuing to sprout up and to bring financial pains. According to the American Hotel & Lodging Association,there are 55 million bad hotel bookings annually: that’s nearly $4 billion dollars in poachers’ pockets!
