Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel & Conference Center Renovates Ballroom











Rosemont, IL (PRWEB) March 18, 2010

The Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel & Conference Center (http://www.CrownePlazaOhare.com), 5440 N. River Rd., has taken another step toward total transformation with the opening earlier this month of the remodeled O’Hare International Ballroom. In conjunction with the new ballroom opening, anyone who books an event at the hotel through June 30 will receive 10% off the total bill, according to Patty Connolly, Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare general manager.

The 23,500-square-foot ballroom – one of the largest column-free rooms in the O’Hare area – has new high-end décor with state-of-the-art LED chandeliers and finishes mirroring the property’s recently renovated guest rooms and suites. More than 4,000 square feet of pre-function space has been added adjacent to the ballroom for staging registrations, pre-meal receptions (capacity: 400), dessert buffets, small-scale trade shows and similar events.

For maximum sound coverage, both the ballroom and the pre-function space have been equipped with a new 60-speaker sound system. Throughout, a new Lutron lighting system creates energy efficient, digitally controlled ambiance.

“We’ve gotten lots of compliments on the décor, with its elegant yet approachable look. The room’s new raised ceiling height gives it an overall spacious appearance, yet there’s an intimate feel,” said Connolly.

She explained that event planners appreciate the fact that the ballroom can be divided into as many as five separate spaces. “For example, you can simultaneously conduct a general session in one room, a trade show in another, and still have up to three spaces available for break-out sessions.”

The combined ballroom space can accommodate receptions for up to 3,800, sit-down meals for up to 2,300 and theater-style seating for up to 3,000. When divided, each smaller room can handle around 30 6-foot trade show booths or classroom-style seating for about 250.

The Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare’s dedicated meeting managers oversee all event details with services that include a two-hour response to RFP guarantee and daily meetings debriefs.

With its prime location just 1.5 miles from O’Hare International Airport, across from the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, and adjacent to the Rosemont Theater, the hotel regularly hosts training sessions, conferences and trade shows in many industries, as well as religious gatherings, self-help seminars, dance competitions and, of course, weddings.

The hotel recently renovated all 503 guest rooms and suites, adding handcrafted custom furniture plus amenities including a refrigerator, in-room safe that accommodates a laptop computer, cordless telephone, 32-inch flat-screen HD television, wireless high-speed internet access and Roomlinx interactive entertainment solution.

A two-story fitness center with indoor swimming pool, several on-site dining options, indoor parking, and a free airport shuttle round out the property’s offerings.

“Whether it’s a trade show, full-scale convention, wedding or intimate social gathering, the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare with our newly remodeled guest rooms and ballroom, has the facilities, amenities and service to make it a success,” said Connolly.

For more information, call 847-928-3717.

3D, Connectivity and TV Supply Chain Among Topics to be Addressed at DisplaySearch’s Upcoming TV Ecosystem Conference











Austin, TX (Vocus) July 24, 2009

With the transition from analog to digital broadcasting complete, and the conversion from CRT and rear projection to flat panel well underway, the TV market is without a doubt entering a more mature phase marked by slower growth. In these times, it becomes increasingly critical for leading organizations and individuals across the TV supply chain to come together to share their insight, knowledge and experiences in order to ensure continued growth for the future. Building upon its proven track record of organizing world class TV industry conferences, DisplaySearch’s TV Ecosystem Conference: After the Digital Transition – Finding the Next Big Thing taking place on September 2 in San Jose, California will provide a forum for engaging presentations and panels to spark further discussion about keeping innovation and profitable growth alive.

“The global economic situation seems to be improving, and so has demand for TVs,” noted Paul Gagnon, DisplaySearch Director of North America TV Research. “Despite this, there are still pitfalls to the recovery and uncertainty as to its profitable sustainability. The TV Ecosystem Conference will address what is happening in the TV industry now, some near-term obstacles, and the direction the TV ecosystem should take in the next three to five years. The conference will focus on how new forms of content, connectivity and technology could drive renewed growth for hardware and influence product development decisions for years to come.”

Hot industry topics to be discussed at the TV Ecosystem Conference include

Assessing the State of the TV Supply Chain
LCD panel prices are on the rise, and expected to continue rising for near-term before stabilizing towards Q4’09. Many questions remain unanswered, such as “How high will prices go?”, “How is supply expected to change?” and “How will rising prices affect demand?”.

What Are the Next Big Features for the TV Industry?
What new future features and design requirements will shape tomorrow’s TV architecture and what are the implications for system engineers and designers? Is the move towards architecture simplification and cost reduction compatible with handling increasing content variety and a more central role for the TV in the home? New features like streaming video playback, LED backlights and 3D will require changes in TV architecture.

Connectivity
With the prevalence of downloadable and streaming content, as well as wireless and wired HD connections, the TV is connected to many new devices. What is the future of streaming and downloadable content? How does the PC fit into this mix, if at all? Are wireless solutions ready for prime time?

3D TVs
As TVs become a commodity, many wonder what the next big application is. 3D is gaining attention both in movies and gaming and has the potential to breathe new life into the TV market. While standards for 3D are still in early development stage, there are still many unanswered questions. What hardware is required? Will content be available to drive demand?

The TV Ecosystem Conference on September 2, 2009 in San Jose, California will address how stronger-than-expected demand in the first half of 2009 has created a tight supply situation as panel makers struggle to recover profits and fill orders. As a result, rapidly rising panel prices pose a challenge for many throughout the supply chain. Set manufacturers and retailers are just beginning to see better profit margins, but that could be wiped out in short order do to soaring production costs. This dynamic event will feature presentations from display and TV manufacturers, brand vendors, semiconductor designers, retailers/channel participants, content developers and wireless/connectivity providers–providing a forum for discussing growth drivers in the TV market.

Confirmed speakers include Corning, Intel, Sigma Designs, Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI), DLNA, Rovi, Digital Media Directions and HDMI.

During the week of the TV Ecosystem Conference, each attendee will also have the opportunity to have a complimentary one-on-one meeting with Paul Gagnon, DisplaySearch Director of North American TV Research. Please contact Laura Castellano at laura_castellano(at)displaysearch.com to set up a time on Tuesday, September 1 or Thursday, September 3.
