Create a New Meeting Experience

The Elgin area is the perfect destination for special events and meetings of all sizes. The area is conveniently located just 30 minutes from O’Hare International Airport and just a Metra trail stop from Chicago (Metra Milwaukee District/West Line – MD-W). The communities of the Elgin Area are located off Interstate 90 and are easily accessible from surrounding towns and cities. Meeting attendees can enjoy free parking during their event and while enjoying the area afterwards.

Creating A
Unique Experience

If team building is what you are looking for, then we have everything from rock climbing and kayaking, Escape Rooms, axe throwing, paintball courses and obstacle courses. Meeting attendees and their traveling companions can find unique experiences throughout the Elgin Area. Between meetings, your attendees can take a food tour through downtown restaurants, enjoy a night at the Grand Victoria Casino, and get in an early morning golf game at one of many golf courses.

for Everyone

The Elgin Area Convention & Visitors Bureau can help arrange discounted tickets for some of our local family attractions like Santa’s Village Amusement Park, outing on the Fabulous Fox River Trail or the Fox River Bike Trail. Enjoy a long weekend visiting area restaurants, taking a walking tour of public art or seeing all the “painted lady” homes and architectural attractions

The Elgin Area is so close to Chicago that we know families like to come along for an extended leisure getaway after the meeting ends. The whole family will find the perfect outing in the Elgin area.
