Destination information

The 33rd International Conference of Alzheimer’s Disease International shall be held in McCormick Place, near the shore of Lake Michigan, downtown Chicago, Illinois, United States. For more information, see www.mccormickplace.com

Affixed by stunning Lake Michigan and decorated with inspiring architecture, Chicago is more than just a big city. Besides its striking downtown area, which includes some of the tallest buildings in the world, Chicago has a distinctive shoreline, hundreds of vibrant parks and 77 unique neighbourhoods. It’s this truly distinctive mix of incredible attractions and cultural allure that makes Chicago one of the friendliest, most liveable cities in America.

Chicago’s developed a reputation as a must-visit destination for diners. In fact, Chicago is one of only three cities in the country to have its culinary chops rated by the prestigious Michelin Guide. With incredible shopping on The Magnificent Mile, world premiere performances in its famed Theater District and one of the country’s most active nightlife scenes, this city is always buzzing. Chicago also vaunts more than 60 museums, five regional Tony Award-winning theaters and, no matter the season, there’s always a professional sports team to cheer to victory.

Every summer the sounds of Lollapalooza, the Blues Festival, Taste of Chicago, Pitchfork Music Festival, The Stars of Lyric Opera and many more fill the air. Millennium Park, deep dish pizza and Wrigley Field are all compelling enough reasons to visit Chicago, but the city’s most endearing quality is its people. Chicago’s neighbourhoods represent more than 100 countries and it’s through this diversity and profound city culture that we are able to develop the country’s best restaurants, theatres and museums.
