- Venue Description:
The casual tourist will not find much to see here except for the sprawling, massive complex that flashes past your car window as you speed along South Lake Shore Drive. The interior convention halls are vast and airy, home to an annual auto show, restaurant show, book convention and the like. Every year, the building grows bigger as it strives to be the top convention center in the world. The name comes from the same McCormick family that invented the reaper and went on to run the Chicago Tribune for many years.
