Notice for Speakers and Exhibitors
It is becoming increasingly common across all conferences for a company calling themselves Exhibitor Housing Group (or Services, or other similar names) to contact companies and people posted on a conference agenda to try to sell them hotel rooms – allowing you to believe they are appointed by the conference organizer. Do not have anything to do with them. They have no connection to Global Engage or this conference and all reports about them that find their way back to us from other events are negative.
Potter Palmer was a Chicago business magnate—well-known for a variety of endeavors, including his significant role in the development of downtown Chicago's iconic State Street.
Bertha Honore was a wealthy socialite who also had a drive to learn and succeed.
An introduction by Potter's former business partner, Marshall Field, sparked a romance—and eventual engagement—between Potter and Bertha that led to perhaps one of the most extravagant wedding gifts of all time – Palmer House.
On November 8, 1873, the new Palmer House welcomed its first guests, marking the opening of what would become the nation's longest continually operating hotel.
Shortly after befriending Claude Monet in France, Bertha Palmer began decorating the Palmer House with paintings and other pieces inspired by her French heritage. She eventually accumulated the largest collection of impressionist art outside of France. The Palmer House was bedecked with garnet-draped chandeliers, Louis Comfort Tiffany masterpieces, and a breathtaking ceiling fresco by French painter Louis Pierre Rigal. The fresco was described by columnist George Will as “a wonderful protest of romance against the everydayness of life.”
By the turn of the century, the Palmer House had become Chicago's liveliest social center, hosting a long list of prominent figures—including those ranging from U.S. presidents to Charles Dickens to Oscar Wilde.
In 1933, the Golden Empire Dining Room of Palmer House was converted into an entertainment center. It hosted legendary entertainers, including Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Ella Fitzgerald, Harry Belafonte, Louis Armstrong, and Liberace.
In recent years the historic Chicago hotel, Palmer House has undergone a $170 million renovation to ensure that it includes all of the conveniences and comforts our 21st century guests expect while also preserving our significant history.
Palmer House Hilton is a member of Historic Hotels of America, the official program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation® for recognizing and celebrating the finest Historic Hotels.
