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.
PACK EXPO International and Healthcare Packaging EXPO 2020 will be in Chicago during November, which brings chilly weather and the start of holiday season cheer. The Expovision team has been surveying the ever-changing landscape of hotels in the city to prepare the official room block. After our research we’ve added two new, boutique hotels in the downtown area. As always, we’ve pre-negotiated the guaranteed lowest rates for pack expo show attendees and exhibitors!
The charm of a boutique hotel is hard to deny. Boutique hotels invite images of attentive service, localized decor and cuisine and a chance to feel less like a tourist and more like a welcome guest. Even Airbnb wants in on this market.
PACK EXPO International 2018 attendees and exhibitors can experience this alternative to conventional chain hotels – at an exclusive event rate. Online booking for these Chicago hotels is available for individuals and smaller groups. To book more than 20 rooms, please contact PACK EXPO International’s official hotel partner at firstname.lastname@example.org or (866) 523-0877.

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!
In room service, the usual suspects are lukewarm entrees, soggy sandwiches and tired salads. But now, attendees and exhibitors can experience room service with a twist at PACK EXPO International and Healthcare Packaging EXPO on October 14-17, 2018
