Welcome to ILEA Greater Chicago

ILEA works to join professionals to focus on the "event as a whole" rather than its individual parts. ILEA has grown to include chapters throughout the world.

The solid peer network ILEA provides helps special events professionals produce outstanding results for clients while establishing positive working relationships with other event colleagues.
