McCormick Square’s Premiere Event Space
The Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority (MPEA), DePaul University and Wintrust Financial Corporation invite you to check out the newest event center at McCormick Square – Wintrust Arena.
Designed by the internationally-renowned architecture firm Pelli Clarke Pelli, the new building is unique from an architecture standpoint and brings a renewed sense of excitement to the surrounding area. With 10,000 seats and 22 state-of-the-art suites, Wintrust Arena is the perfect venue for a myriad of events and a game changer for the South Loop.
Wintrust Arena is also home to a first-class NCAA basketball court that is the new home to DePaul University’s men’s and women’s basketball teams, as well as Chicago’s WNBA team – the Chicago Sky.
Part of a vibrant and walkable urban experience for convention goers, the Wintrust Arena is located in the heart of McCormick Square, making it a prime tourism destination for local residents and visitors alike. The arena will serve as a further catalyst for economic development of the historic Motor Row along South Michigan Avenue and other surrounding neighborhoods.
