North America's largest convention complex. In addition to 2.2 million square feet of exhibit space, we offer 5 ballrooms and 110 meeting rooms (345,000 sqft of meeting space in all) plus an outdoor terrace overlooking Lake Michigan for special event functions and receptions. The Area Crown Theater in our Lakeside Center is a legitimate theater seating up to 4,249 people.

Managed by the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority (MPEA), Chicago's McCormick Place is North America's premier convention facility and attracts more than four million trade and public show visitors annually. The McCormick Place Complex comprises three state-of-the-art buildings, the South and North buildings and the Lakeside Center (formerly the East building). These buildings have a combined total of more than 2.2 million square feet of exhibit space, 1.6 million square feet all on one level, making it the nation's largest convention center.

McCormick Place also features the largest ballroom in Chicago, and the Arie Crown Theater. The entire McCormick Place complex is linked by a 50,000 square-foot pedestrian promenade, referred to as the Grand Concourse, containing retail shops and other visitor amenities.

The North Building features over 700,000 square feet of exhibition space. The exhibit area can be used independently or in conjunction with the other halls. The North Building also has 29 meeting rooms, service areas and support facilities.

The Lakeside Center at McCormick Place concentrates on hosting mid-sized trade shows and conventions that in the past could not be accommodated by McCormick Place.

The South building offers an additional 840,000 square feet of exhibition space and 170,000 square feet of meeting space.
McCormick Place Convention Center has received approximately 124 profile views in the last three months.
