    Explore Chicago Through Labs

    Chicago Ideas Week attendees have the opportunity to see innovation, creativity and big ideas in action through Labs. Labs are hands-on, custom-created events for Chicago Ideas Week attendees to explore the city of Chicago.

    Go Behind-the-Scenes in Chicago with Chicago Ideas Week Labs!

    Chicago Ideas Week Labs offer opportunities for participants to experience and explore the best of Chicago like never before. Exclusive, behind-the-scenes experiences give participants a unique glimpse into the inner workings of businesses and institutions that are otherwise unavailable to the public.

    Small groups will explore what it's like for business leaders in the boardroom, go behind the curtain at leading theaters and venues, and discover "how-it-works" in hands-on workshops.

    Labs sell out quickly, so become a member to enjoy early access to Labs tickets.
