Pre-Conference Activities

Register Now

We encourage you to arrive prior to the conference to enjoy our pre-conference activities scheduled on April 3rd, 2018! We will have a variety of activities for you to choose from that include:

AICI Art Experience

Accompanied by AICI hosts, we’ll meet in the Loews lobby and travel downtown together on Chicago’s famous “El” (for “elevated”) train, then walk 3 blocks to Millennium Park and the Art Institute of Chicago. You’ll have an hour to wander through Millennium Park’s state-of-the-art collection of architecture, landscape design and art—a lively gathering spot located in the heart of the city and a destination for Chicagoans and visitors alike. Be sure to take a picture of your reflection in “Cloud Gate” (referred to by locals as “The Bean”)—no trip to Chicago is complete without one!

We’ll then walk next door to The Art Institute of Chicago. As one of the America's largest art museums, the Art Institute is a must-see for visitors. From their world-renowned French Impressionist collection to American art favorites like Grant Wood's American Gothic and modern masterpieces by Dalí, Matisse, and Picasso, the museum has something for everyone.  We’ll be treated to a one-hour guided tour (in English) of the highlights of the museum’s many collections.

After the museum tour, you’ll be free to have lunch on your own, then meet the AICI hosts to travel back together on the train to Rosemont. If you prefer, you can stay downtown longer and return on your own via Uber, taxi, or train.
