View from the Top - Innovative Thinking: Chicago Style

Event Description - View from the Top - Innovative Thinking: Chicago Style

Chicago is a city where innovation and building on a grand scale are part of its fabric. Historically, it has been a leader in developing production facilities and networks that made possible the flow of goods in all directions. In today’s high-tech and globalized world, some of the key building blocks of this city are creative thinking, building on a grand scale, and capitalizing on new technologies.
