At the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel, Meet Chicago Northwest, professionals gathered to celebrate Chicago Northwest tourism at the 2019 Annual Partnership Meeting. The flourishing Chicago Northwest area wasn’t the only cause for celebration. Partners of the Meet Chicago Northwest organization also convened to celebrate National Travel & Tourism Week and recognize the merit of five of the area’s hospitality industry professionals.

For the past several years, this event has served as a networking event for the partners of Meet Chicago Northwest. President Dave Parulo describes the meeting as a great way for their partners to build relationships. “I believe our partners find value in sharing quality time together. It is also our opportunity to get them excited about the high impact that Chicago Northwest tourism has on each of our lives,” he says.
