Westin Reservation Update

People who have run into problems with Westin Reservations should find the process easier.  They have increase the block of rooms to accommodate the influx of reservations including Thursday and Sunday.

2020 Show is a GO!!

All,
Here is the latest news on the show. There is a link for room registration at the end.
The show is a go!

This year’s show is May 1-3, at the Westin in Itasca, IL. Same weekend, different location! The Westin is located at the junction of three expressways and is close to O’Hare Airport.

We have a minimum number of room rentals, so we need attendees to stay at the Westin. This is about the survival of the show. Please make reservations ASAP.

We need donations for the silent auction, again, this is about the survival of the show.

Please attend the FREE Friday night banquet for future show announcements.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. We have had less than three months to put the show together under the most pressing of circumstances.

Show Update – 2.5.2020

At the present time, we are actively pursuing our 2 alternative locations. We are aware that Pheasant Run has been cancelling room reservations and falsely stating that the show is cancelled. This is far from the truth. THERE WILL BE A SHOW THE FIRST WEEKEND OF MAY! Please book your airfare. Venue details are forthcoming. Stay tuned for more information in the next two weeks.

Show Update 1.25.2020

At the present time, we are still contractually obligated to Pheasant Run until the new owners are established and we hear from them on their desire to host the show. Until such a time, we cannot confirm plans for an alternate venue.

In the meantime, we have bids from at least 2 other venues for the show. There will be a show the first weekend of May.

Please book your airfare. Once matters are settled with Pheasant Run, we will advise which hotel to make your reservations. We will provide details ASAP.

Show Update

You have probably heard that Pheasant Run will no longer be hosting the Chicago Pipe Show. We are currently in the process of searching for and evaluating a new venue for this year’s show and for the future. We will immediately post further information as soon as a new venue is secured. Please check back on our website periodically to keep informed. The Chicagoland Pipe Collectors Club regrets any inconvenience that any of our attendees and visitors may be experiencing during this trying time. The club was only informed of Pheasant Run’s inability to host this year’s show a few short weeks ago and we have been diligent in finding another adequate venue.
