Since the inception of ILOE, we have had one sole goal: to facilitate meaningful and beneficial connections and business relationships between ILOE’s exhibitors and the best retail stores in North America by providing an inexpensive, convenient, and comfortable venue. Each year we are constantly improving and growing our show to meet and exceed the expectations of both exhibitors and attendees alike.
ILOE takes place at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, conveniently located only five minutes from the Chicago O’Hare International Airport. Both the convention center and ILOE’s preferred hotels are only a short free shuttle ride away from the airport. We believe that the location, which is also serviced by world-class restaurants, truly is the most convenient and comfortable venue for all of our domestic and international attendees.
Attending ILOE is always a pleasant experience for both exhibitors and attendees. Each day begins with complimentary breakfast for those staying under the ILOE block at our preferred hotels. Since each hotel is only a short walk or shuttle ride away from the convention center, ILOE attendees are able to quickly get to business. In addition to the complimentary breakfasts, ILOE provides all attendees a free lunch each day of the show.
