CHICAGO (July , 22 2014) – The Hyatt Regency McCormick Place is pleased to announce that it will return as an official hotel for the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.  Gearing up to take over the Windy City February 14-22, the Chicago Auto Show attracts car aficionados from around the globe to get an up-close-and-personal view of the world's most spectacular automobiles, some being viewed by the media and public for the first time anywhere.

“We are very excited to partner with the Chicago Auto Show for a second year” said Hyatt Regency McCormick Place General Manager Paul Daly.  “The show is a great tradition for the city, and we are proud to be a part of this historic event.”

John Webb, 2015 Chicago Auto Show chairman, shares the excitement.

"Not only is the Hyatt one of our city's premier hotels, but close proximity and excellent amenities and room offerings  make it the perfect choice as a HQ hotel for the nation’s largest show," said Webb.  "We're glad to be working with the Hyatt and look forward to working together for many years to come. Signing a long-term deal helps significantly lower room rates for our exhibitors and attendees."

Showcasing nearly 1,000 domestic and imported vehicles and auto-related exhibitors, the Chicago Auto Show is a must-see attraction for travelers and local community alike.  Each year the show utilizes more than 1 million square feet of the McCormick Place complex and features production, concept, competition, specialty and one-of-a-kind vehicles.  The show's media preview will be open to the press Feb. 12 – 13, and the show’s First Look for Charity will be Feb. 13 from 7 – 11 p.m.
