Welcome to the City of Big Shoulders
In 1914, American poet Carl Sandburg famously described Chicago as "Hog Butcher for the World, / Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat, / Player with Railroads and the Nation's Freight Handler; / Stormy, husky, brawling, / City of the Big Shoulders."
Today, this great American city has plenty to offer visitors from around the world.
The TESOL 2018 headquarters hotel is the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place. It is located on the McCormick Place campus, not far from Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, the Art Institute of Chicago, Navy Pier, and the Magnificent Mile.
Hotel rooms fill up quickly, so be sure to reserve your room as soon as possible. The list of convention hotels and special convention rates will be available when registration opens the week of 17 September.
TESOL will offer free shuttle service from convention hotels to the McCormick Place Convention Center throughout the convention. Watch this space for shuttle hours and other information as it becomes available.
