Event Services

From convenient booth service to themed evening celebrations, McCormick Place Chicago’s expansive exhibit halls, scenic ballrooms, meeting rooms and pre-function areas, offer a myriad of opportunities to create enjoyable, unique experiences. Our experienced sales staff and chefs customize individualized food and beverage programs, and plan all the details that ensure your event is a success.


Our chefs will work with you to customize an individualized food and beverage program for your exhibit hall show floor. We might craft a personalized food court, assemble branded box lunches, or serve gourmet specialties served by our professional wait staff. We might provide portable carts featuring food selections from around the globe or specialty beverage services including espresso and cappuccino. Together, we’ll determine the right approach and personalized touch for your event.
