While you can always view the city of Chicago from one of the tallest buildings in the world, the Willis Tower, there’s a new way to see the vast landscape—from a helicopter hovering 100 stories high. Chicago Helicopter Experience is the latest option for meeting and event professionals to take their event to a whole new level. Guests can enjoy dinner, cocktails and entertainment before taking flight on a unique day or night tour that also provides a little history. 

“We provide a convenient way for visitors to take in all the wonder the city has to offer, within a small window of time,” says Trevor Heffernan, founder and CEO of Chicago Helicopter Experience. “It provides meeting and event professionals with an unrivaled, high-touch experience to forever impress attendees.”

To promote the service, a regular afterhours bi-monthly event called HeliNights takes place at the Chicago Helicopter Experience Heliport with food from DineAmic Group, décor from Kehoe Designs and entertainment from The Music Trust. The inaugural event, held July 14, unveiled the newest addition to the fleet: the Airbus EC130 helicopter.

Rocky’s Ginger Beer and Russian Standard Vodka were also sponsors of the July event. Look for it to resume in the spring.

Stay ahead of the curve with these crowd-searched trends and topics.

 

The International Live Events Association (ILEA) Dallas Chapter spread some holiday cheer at its annual Holiday Giveback. The organization chose to work with Senior Source and the Diversicare facility. Members of the group held a party for the facility complete with caroling, live music, holiday crafts and bingo—and of course plenty of cookies and punch. The group also collected items for Diversicare’s wish list, along with a $5 donation from each member who registered for the networking happy hour that followed the party.
