Where is CHA Summer 2011?

CHA Summer 2011 opens today in the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Which probably has you saying…where?

Perhaps it is a better frame of reference to say that we are at Chicago O’Hare airport. And when I say at the airport, I mean…AT the airport. Planes are buzzing the roof of the hotel every two minutes as I sit writing this, as they come in for a landing.

The convention center and surrounding hotels are very convenient to each other. I got a real close-up look at the venue from the air as I buzzed the hotel rooftops during my own arrival on Sunday.

On the left side of the street is the convention center, and on the right are most of the hotels. The short walk across the street is especially appreciated with the heat wave hitting the midwest this week that has the heat index well over 100 degrees each afternoon!

It will be a busy day for us inside the convention center today but we will do our best to bring you some highlights on our Twitter and Facebook accounts, and then we’ll bring you full coverage this evening on Scrapbook Update!
