"Mecum Auctions appreciates the guidance and support provided by Meet Chicago Northwest, the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center, and its partners to help grow our collector-car auction in Chicago. Our customers benefit from the amenities and conveniences of the hotel, convention center, and the surrounding community and Mecum Auctions has a partner to help grow our business.”

Sam Murtaugh
Mecum Auctions, Inc.

"There were several reasons why we chose Schaumburg for our new trade show: easy access (versus the city), free parking, more affordable hotels & restaurants (versus the city); for our exhibitors: more affordable exhibit space, services, furnishings and “open shop” (versus “union only” in the city). The Renaissance is a newer, upscale, classy, comfortable and “green” facility that fits well with our industry!”

“Our statewide association needed a great location at affordable prices for our 2016 annual conference and Tom Dahlquist listened carefully to what I needed and then provided me with some great options. My board president and I were able to see several hotels, one after the other in one afternoon, because MCNW lined up the visits and everybody was waiting for us. We’re delighted to be going to Schaumburg for our annual conference next year.”
