By published October 09, 2023


Olympia Fields, Ill. – (October 5, 2023) For the first time in four years due to COVID-19, the Chicago Southland Convention & Visitors Bureau (CSCVB) brought the region “Together Again” at its Annual Meeting & Awards Luncheon at the DoubleTree by Hilton Chicago-Alsip. Over 300 local politicians, businesspeople and community partners celebrated the rebound of the travel and tourism industry in the Chicago Southland.

The event featured a video presentation from Governor J.B. Pritzker, who shared his excitement for the upcoming Wind Creek Chicago Southland Casino as a regional asset. Deputy Director for the Illinois Office of Tourism Daniel Thomas was the keynote speaker and shared the new national “The Middle of Everything” commercials with former Dolton resident and actress Jane Lynch.

“I’m absolutely thrilled we were finally able to bring everyone ‘Together Again’ celebrating the significant progress the travel and tourism industry in the Southland has made since COVID-19,” said CSCVB President/CEO Jim Garrett.
