How Can We Set Up the Rooms?

Our variety of large spaces allows your clients to be right in the room with the consumers either actively interacting or quietly observing. Or they can choose to be tucked away in their own private and super comfortable viewing room, watching all the action through mirrors and on monitors. The rooms are flexible and can be tailored to your needs. Here are some examples:

We’re accessible. Smack dab in downtown Chicago, with easy parking, trains, cabs, sidewalks. Right off the Kennedy Expressway, a quick hop to both airports. A short walk from several subway stops and all the major train stations. We offer discounted validated parking at a parking garage a block away.
