Walking distance to hotels and Michigan Avenue

The Gleacher Center perches on the banks of the Chicago River, right before it opens up into Lake Michigan. It was right here that Chicago was founded, with the first permanent residence being only a few feet away, and it is still the living heart of the city.

You’ll be within easy walking distance of hotels, sightseeing opportunities, and dozens of world-class restaurants and bars. If you’re a foodie with a taste for cutting-edge cuisine, a pub-food aficionado, a history buff, a nightclub kind of person, or the king or queen of karaoke, it’s all right there for you.

We’re excited to have you downtown, and if you’re looking for something to do, ask an Orbiteer. There aren’t many places in our hometown we haven’t been. We’ll be glad to show you…and maybe tag along!

Room for keynotes, breakouts, and breathers

The Gleacher Center is both cozy and expansive, allowing for a variety of different-sized gatherings without you getting lost, turned around, or missing your talk. The Gleacher has rooms for:

  • Large keynote addresses (with breakfast and coffee!)
  • Breakout sessions (with snacks!)
  • Lounges for relaxing and lunch (with, well, lunch!)
  • Great wi-fi for taking notes and staying connected.

We’re not the biggest conference in the world, and we don’t want to be. We want an accessible, informational, and fun experience for everyone. We’ll be glad to see you at the Gleacher this year.

Not your average conference. Not your average conference food.

Who’s speaking? Who will be there? What am I going to eat? Those are the questions we all ask about conferences…and not always in that order. At Content Jam, you’ll have a dining experience that blows other conferences out of the water.

The Gleacher Center is an exclusive customer of Wolfgang Puck Catering. Puck is is an internationally-renowned chef whose catering experience highlights his unique use of flavoring in friendly, accessible, delicious dishes. Our Day 2 lunch gives you gourmet sandwiches that you’ll eat while gazing out at Chicago, networking with some of the best people in the industry.

(Oh, and we still have great speakers, too. But the lunch!)
