We look at the events that marketers will want to attend in the Chicago area in November 2016. Let us know if you'll be attending any of them!

The leaves are changing, and the holidays are approaching, but Chicago is a lively city that's full of members of the marketing community, and that means that there are plenty of great events scheduled for the upcoming month. We're excited about the following events, and we hope to meet you if you're planning to attend any of them!

Election Day

While this isn't technically a marketing event (although we can definitely learn plenty about marketing from the candidates' campaigns), don't forget to vote on Tuesday, November 8! If you still need to register, or if you need to find your polling place, Illinois residents can visit this page, and people in the rest of the country can find information here.
