Chicago Marriott Lincolnshire Resort—managed by The Bricton Group—has revealed their $22 million renovation plans. The renovations are set to begin in December 2016 and for completion in the second half of 2017.

“Guest needs have changed, and we’re changing to delight them with unprecedented comfort and flexibility,” says Eric Bates, general manager of the Chicago Marriott Lincolnshire Resort. “We’re marrying the sophistication of the Marriott brand with local, personalized touches. Everything will be transformed, from the restaurants, to the guest rooms and lobby, and we’ll be adding entirely new experiences like two new, innovative restaurants, and a serene spa.”

The design firm The Gettys Group will be responsible for the renovation. There will be new technology, updated amenities, two new restaurants, a Starbucks, and new spa and guest rooms. All to be completed in just seven months.

“We’re honored to be leading the renovation design of one of Chicagoland’s most famous properties,” said Roger Hill, chairman and CEO of The Gettys Group. “We’ve integrated exciting, modern touches into the resort’s updated design, including a luxurious spa, elegant porte cochere to welcome guests, and functional guest rooms to ensure comfort for all travelers.”

Renovations will include the Greatroom, M Club Lounge, dining experiences, guest rooms, the spa, the lobby and technology. A major part of the renovation will include an overhaul of the 40-year-old King’s Wharf restaurant. The restaurant’s décor and memorabilia will be auctioned off in December.

The key to maximizing success (and limiting risk) is for marketers to better understand how their audiovisual team works. 

It is almost event day. You are excited, but you are also stressed.

You have spent the last few months preparing for your live stream: that big product launch, quarterly Town Hall, or video conference that your boss needs to go well. Your marketing and communications teams have been working hard, and everything appears ready.

 

Everybody loves to talk about welcoming change. Then change happens, and whew, it’s tough. After the past few years, meetings and events professionals certainly appreciate that feeling, but they’re also feeling energized by so many new ways for attendees to gather. 

 

The corporate world spends an estimated $242 billion on gifts for employees and customers, according to Forbes. Wouldn’t it be rewarding if the purchasing and giving of these types of gifts offered meaningful work for veterans, women, and their children?
