Emerging Leaders Start First in the Second City

We know the Midwinter Meeting in Chicago is busy, so be sure to block off time to attend the Emerging Leaders event Feb. 23 at the Kimpton Gray Hotel, Chicago’s newest hotel, set in a historic building that’s considered one of Chicago’s finest landmarks. It is conveniently located close to the McCormick Center near the Palmer House and the Art Institute of Chicago.

“In Chicago, at the Midwinter Meeting, with all the events and happenings going on, I always look forward to the Emerging Leaders DTA event,” said Young Innovations Business Development Manager, Nichol Schreiber. “It gives all of us an opportunity to come together, manufacturers and distributors, to discuss important topics going on in our industry, while also having some time to relax and enjoy each other’s company outside the hustle of the trade show floor.”

The Emerging Leaders event is an after-hours networking event where attendees can mingle with new DTA members and prospective members in the comfortable Robie Room. Anyone who wants to increase their industry contacts through networking should be sure to attend.
