International Floriculture Expo at McCormick Place Chicago

Chicago McCormick Place is the largest convention center in North America. It consists of four interconnected buildings sited on and near the shore of Lake Michigan, 2.5 miles south of downtown Chicago, Illinois. You could say it almost has the feel of a city within a city. The walkways and concourse are bright, light and airy and the architecture of McCormick Place is wildly impressive. The halls are considerable and very well organized with show exhibitors presenting with a warm welcome and many beautifully handmade touches. This trade show is a business to business event with an audience of retailers and distributors. The International Floriculture Expo is the largest B2B Floral Trade Show in North America.
