I visited chicago for a week and went here specifically to get some shoes. They are handmade in Italy and are prob the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. The price was reasonable $150. The salesman was very helpful and knowledgable and had no qualms about running to the back to get as many shoes or sizes I wanted to try on. The shirts were buy one get one half off at the time... not really my style though. More comfortable than my running shoes!
I use Rightway for all our OSHA consulting. They are extremely thorough and informative. John is an excellent trainer and goes at the right pace for the staff. He helped set up all our SDS manuals and OSHA guidelines. And he is always available for any questions. Definitely recommend!
The convention center is bright, spacious, and clean. The room numbering is a bit bizarre which makes navigation somewhat more challenging but the signage is good and there are multiple information kiosks.
