Summit Off-Sites Around Chicago’s Tech Scene

This year at the Summit we're introducing Off-Site Visits.

They are behind the scenes tours/meet and greets at a few of Chicago's most interesting AEC companies.

mHUB's Grand Opening featuring Mayor Emanuel this past Fall in Chicago.

They'll be hosted on Wednesday afternoon, May 3rd, before the Kick-Off Reception. So if you're coming in Wednesday a.m., it would be a great way to spend the day.

Here's some info on what you'll find at each...
