Let Your Space Inspire Your Meeting

The Elgin Area is quickly becoming a hot destination for weddings, special events and meetings of all sizes. The area is conveniently located 30 minutes from O’Hare International Airport and just west of Chicago. The communities of the Elgin Area are located off of Interstate 90 and are easily accessible from surrounding towns and cities. Meeting attendees can enjoy free parking during their event and while enjoying the town afterwards. The area is well served by public transit, including the Metra train that connects Elgin to downtown Chicago, with four stops in the Elgin area.

The Elgin Area Convention & Visitors Bureau’s sales team offers complimentary services to make planning your event easy. Let our team match your event with the perfect venue that will elevate your meeting. Meeting and event planners are finding our unique spaces just what clients are looking for. Whether you are hosting a formal black tie event, a small off-site meeting or a regional training that requires extensive set-up or hands-on IT support, our staff will assist you in finding a venue that will leave attendees amazed. If team building is what you are looking for then we have got you covered with everything from rock climbing and kayaking to challenging your staff with inflatable bumper balls and obstacle courses! We can also connect you with all of the local businesses you need to cater, photograph and decorate the meeting space. 

Meeting attendees and their traveling companions can all find unique experiences throughout the Elgin Area. Have you ever hosted a meeting in a Frank Lloyd Wright farmhouse or in a cultural arts theater? We can make that happen for your group or help you find the perfect venue with a view of the Fox River or our downtown skyline. 

The Elgin Area is so close to Chicago that we know families like to tag along for an extended leisure getaway after the meeting ends. Families can hop on the Metra to spend a day in downtown Chicago seeing the sights or fill their days and nights in the Elgin Area. The Elgin Area Convention & Visitors Bureau can help arrange discounted tickets for some of our local family attractions like Santa’s Village Azoosment Park or an outing on the Fox River Bike Trail. Bring your spouse for a long weekend to enjoy the many new restaurants in the area and historic walking tours that will showcase “Painted Lady” homes and more architectural attractions. We have all the excuses you need to extend your trip.
