    Explore Chicago Through Labs

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

    Go behind the scenes in Chicago with Chicago Ideas Labs!

    Labs offer participants the opportunity to experience the best of Chicago innovation in ways you won't get anywhere else. Exclusive, behind-the-scenes experiences give participants unique insights into the inner-workings of businesses and institutions that are otherwise unavailable to the public.

    Small groups discover how pioneering products and services are brought to life in hands-on workshops, go behind the curtain at leading theaters and venues, and explore how business innovators lead their offices to success.

    Our Labs notoriously sell out quickly, so become a Member and get early access to Labs tickets.
