Now Jerry Roper, one of the most respected convention veterans in Chicago, is not pulling any punches as he offers advice to halt the exodus. "It's broken at McCormick Place and we have to fix it," Roper told CBS 2 Chief Correspondent Jay Levine. In a blunt, top-to-bottom indictment of the nation's largest convention center, Roper said McCormick Place is failing to change with the times. There is plenty of blame to spread around, he said. They were setting up the big muscle car show at Rosemont's Stephens convention center Friday night, just hours after getting the word that another car show was pulling ...

The good news is that not all Chambers of Commerce are created equal.  In fact, our very own Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce has launched the Green Business Forum , a new effort to help local businesses capitalize on the opportunities inherent in sustainability.  I’ve done some informal consulting on the business greening challenge piece if the GBF, and from all I can see this effort has legs. There will be winners and losers as our country moves towards developing a more sustainable economy, so good on the Chicagoland Chamber for seeing past the politics and protecting the interests of its members. It’s definitely ... market research, surveys and trends

The Cook County Board voted on Tuesday, July 21, 13-3-1 to repeal a half-percent of the 1-percent sales tax increase they approved last year, dropping the sales tax rate to 9.75% in the City of Chicago beginning January 1, 2010. The Board passed a similar measure earlier this year but President Stroger vetoed it. This time, however, there appears to be enough votes to override a veto. The 2008 sales tax increase caused businesses and consumers alike to think twice before making purchases within Cook County, costing the County millions in sales tax revenue and worsening the local economy. It has been especially devastating for ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce to bankroll candidates for Chicago City Council
The Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce plans to mount an aggressive fundraising campaign to recruit and support business-friendly candidates in next year's aldermanic races in hopes of remaking the City Council. It's a promise the chamber has made before, in the wake of the battle over the big-box minimum wage ordinance that has kept Wal-Mart Stores Inc. from adding city locations. But as unions were pouring about $3 million into 10 ward campaigns over the issue during the 2007 elections, the chamber raised only $165,000. Now the business group is aiming for $2.5 million to $3 million and hiring a professional fundraiser ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
