ITS Midwest Annual Meeting attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a “Behind the Scenes” tour of O’Hare International Airport.

Start time: 1:30 pm
Duration: 2-3 hours
Cost: free
Maximum attendees: 75 (spread across multiple groups).

The “Behind the Scenes” tour includes a bus tour around the O’Hare grounds, with stops showing behind the scenes logistics. Depending on how busy the day is, there may be a stop in the control tower, but this is outside our control if we get in.

There is a lot with limited parking. Participants will be on their own for transportation from Downers Grove to O’Hare, sharing rides is suggested.

There is a strict deadline in order to submit to the airport authorities the list of tour participants: attendees must sign-up no later than Friday, August 23rd, 2019.
Each potential attendee will be vetted and may be told they cannot join.
