hyatt-regency-chicagoHOW Design Live returns in 2017 to one of our favorite host cities: Chicago, the site of the biggest, most buzzed-about events in our 27-year history.

We’ll be headquartered at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, ideally located one block off The Magnificent Mile. You’ll be close to Millennium Park, Lake Michigan and the Chicago River, as well as many of Chicago’s finest restaurants, attractions, theaters, shopping and nightspots. You’ll want to explore this friendly, walkable city and its world-class architecture, expansive parks and vibrant arts and culture.

We’ve arranged special room rates for HOW Design Live attendees at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.

Space in the room blocks is limited, so book your room right away.
