Plan Early: October is a busy season in Chicago. Hotel rooms and airline connections are at a premium. In order to save money and take advantage of M2Moms® Discounts please make your reservations as soon as you can.
Dress Code: Business casual is appropriate for all PME® conferences. Large spaces such as theaters and ballrooms are sometimes too hot for some and too cold for others. We encourage you to dress in light layers and to bring a sweater, shawl or blazer.
The Conference Hotel is only a block and a half from the Conference Venue!
