As you may have heard, our partner, McCormick Place, is assisting in this crisis by converting several exhibit halls into an alternate care facility for patients with non-threatening conditions. We are very pleased to see that one of our partners is doing their part in helping get this virus under control in Chicago.
McCormick Place, under the direction of FEMA & The Army Corps of Engineers, are working diligently to get ready to take patients starting April 20. We are getting regular updates from McCormick Place to understand what methods are being used to get ready for patients and what the sanitation / cleansing process looks like when this is over, so we can be assured McCormick will be safe for trade shows to resume in June and for our arrival in September.
