The Motivation Show, the combination of the 29th Incentive Travel & Meeting Executives (IT&ME) Show and the 68th National Premium Incentive Show, returns to Chicago's McCormick Place October 9 to 11. And back for its 24th year will be the PGI Pizzathon, set for October 10 from 7 p.m. until 2 a.m. at the Hangge-Uppe Bar in the Rush Street area. PGI is the events and communications company based in Arlington, Va.
New this year: the more than 2,500 suppliers from both shows will be housed in a single exhibit hall, the giant South Building. Attendees will also find it easier to travel to McCormick Place because of newly dedicated bus lines from downtown.
