Restaurant Trade Show To Remain In Chicago

Changes made by Governor Quinn to reduce expenses to convention holders were sufficient enough for the NRA to keep its convention in Chicago through 2016.

Mayor Daley, who was present at the signing, said that other trade shows and conventions are committing to Chicago thanks to the cuts in expenses, instead of traveling to competing Las Vegas and Orlando.
