The Illinois Department of Transportation has begun the reconstruction of the northbound U.S. 41 (Lake Shore Drive) ramp to outbound I-55 (Stevenson Expressway). Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. During this reconstruction period, drivers wishing to avoid expected delays might consider using the following alternatives when approaching our McCormick Place Campus. Find complete information and driving directions.
Parking lots on the McCormick Place campus are managed by Standard Parking and are in close proximity and walking distance to our convention complex. Events in the North, South and West Buildings designate the Lot A garage as the primary parking location. Take Cermak Road east to Martin Luther King Drive and head south to the entrance to Lot A.
Lot A (8' height clearance) is a six level garage with 2,100 parking spaces located on Martin Luther King Drive, adjacent to the West Building. Covered walkways from Lot A leading directly into McCormick Place and the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place Hotel also provide added convenience. The parking rate is $21 for up to 16 hours and $34 from 16 to 24 hours. There are no in-and-out privileges. Overnight parking is available in Lot A only. Lost tickets will pay the $34 (overnight) fee per day.
A limited number of guaranteed parking spaces are available to exhibitors by advance order of an Exhibitor Parking Permit at the rate of $31 per day (plus $5 service charge). This permit allows access to the garages with in-and-out privileges. Parking spaces are guaranteed even if lots fill to capacity. Order Reserve Show Parking.
Because more than one event is held at McCormick Place, parking availability may be limited. We encourage you to use our free shuttle service from official room block hotels instead. Look for Shuttle Bus Information when it becomes available.
Please arrive early, allowing ample time for travel within the McCormick Place complex. Late-comers are not guaranteed seats at any F course, even those for which they have already registered.
