“It was such a pleasure working with you on Chicago Gourmet! We were so impressed with how PWE managed it all.”
— Melissa Poll (Special Events Director, Conde Nast Food Group)
PWE in partnership with The Illinois Restaurant Association helped bring together the best restaurants in Chicago, the world’s top chefs and superior wineries, breweries and spirit makers to create Chicago Gourmet, a world-class food and wine festival, held at Millennium Park.
For the inaugural event, PWE was engaged just six weeks prior to the festival. Within the six-week timeframe, we transformed Millennium Park into a culinary landscape enabling guests of the Chicago Gourmet experience various cooking demonstrations, tastings, wineries and seminars by world-class chefs.
We handled all events before and after the including Hamburger Hop, communications and logistics for the venue, sponsors, vendors, celebrity chefs, volunteers and the Illinois Restaurant Association itself as well as the City Of Chicago’s various departments to ensure a seamless event throughout the weekend.
