Prepay for Parking

Arrive Early

Because more than one event is held at McCormick Place, parking availability may be limited. CDS encourages you to use the free shuttle service from official room block hotels. Please arrive early, allowing ample time for travel within the McCormick Place West complex. Latecomers are not guaranteed seats in any F course, even those for which they have already registered.

Parking at McCormick Place

The McCormick Place West building is located at 2301 S. Indiana Ave.  

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

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 daily rate is $25. Hours of operation: Thursday – Saturday, 6:30 a.m. – 7 p.m. There are no in-and-out privileges. Overnight parking is available in Lot A only. Lost tickets will pay a $38 overnight fee per day. 

Overflow Parking Lot B

Lot B will be available as overflow parking once Lot A is officially full.  A complimentary shuttle bus will be provided from Lot B to Gate 42 and at the end of the day from Gate 42 to Lot B.

    Exhibitor Parking Permit

    A limited number of guaranteed parking spaces are available to exhibitors by advance order of an Exhibitor Parking Permit. This permit allows access to the garages with in-and-out privileges. Parking spaces are guaranteed even if lots fill to capacity.
