Don’t forget how important it is to be informed about how smart technology is impacting the industry. I don’t know about you, but I will certainly be taking advantage of this opportunity to discover how to “Know your customer and where they are going” presented by NBA legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson.

3. Ping Pong Night with McCue

We are excited to start a new tradition at McCue this year! We know how important it is to build strong relationships with our customers.

Also, if you’re a young professional working in the field, take this opportunity to meet and network with young professionals like you working in the industry of Material Handling.

When in Chicago … 


You don’t want to leave Chicago without stepping into the Skydeck Chicago, located at Willis Tower. The incredible panoramic views through the clear observation boxes extend to four states. 


Lincoln Zoo

If you get a chance and the weather is nice, stop by the Lincoln Park Zoo, one of the oldest zoos in North America. It's home to over 1,250 animals and is located just off Lake Shore Drive at the Fullerton Parkway exit. Bonus: It's free admission.


I cannot forget the most important thing of Chicago: pizza. It's at least one of the most popular things in Chicago, that's for sure. Several pizza styles have been developed in the city, but its signature pizza is the deep dish. If you have the chance check out Giordano’s, Gino’s East restaurant or Lou Malnati’s Pizza, top pizza places with certificates of excellence that promise to give you the best pizza experience in Chicago. Bon Appetit!
