DRE Returns to Navy Pier Chicago

  • Digital Retailing Expo (DRE), the conference dedicated to screen-based, in-store media networks, digital signage and solutions for applications within retail, hospitality, transportation and financial establishments will return to Navy Pier Exhibition Center in downtown Chicago, IL for 2007. Navy Pier hosted Digital Retailing Expo in 2005.
  • Show dates are May 16-17, 2007, and the Hyatt Regency Chicago will be the group's headquarters hotel. It is located close to Navy Pier and many downtown area attractions and restaurants.
  • Digital Retailing Expo 2007 had initially been scheduled to stay at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, site of the 2006 event, but significant attendee and exhibitor feedback prompted the change of venue for 2007.
  • "The return to Navy Pier is a decision we are proud to publicize. While Rosemont offered convenience to Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, the Navy Pier Exhibition complex puts us back in the heart of downtown Chicago, a city where our exhibitors and attendees enjoy to work and visit," says Chris Gibbs, Executive Vice President, ExpoNation LLC and producer of Digital Retailing Expo.
  • According to Gibbs all booth space locations will remain virtually the same in the new venue and show management will individually contact all current 2007 exhibitors immediately regarding the change.
  • In addition, show management will announce International Summit Conference Program seminars and special events later in the year. All events will take place at the Navy Pier Exhibition Center. More information on digital Retailing Expo can be found at www.digitalretailingexpo.com.
