    • 5:30-6:00: Mark Sharba, Flyover Chicago's Sales Manager, will give background on the city's newest, exciting attraction and offer free passes to CTPA members to experience this exhilarating ride for themselves.
    • 6:00-7:00: Jane Lepauw, President of The Benjamin Marshall Society, will share tour-worthy stories of projects designed by architect Benjamin Marshall, including the Drake Hotel, Blackstone Hotel, South Shore Cultural Center, East Lake Shore Drive, and more. It is recommended that you watch this 25-minute documentary about this celebrated architect beforehand.

    There are several parking lots nearby on State Street and Wabash Avenue, and the cheapest options are generally found on SpotHero. The doorman will let you into the building, but in case someone is not there when you show up, you can also call the Party Room to be buzzed inside. If you registered for this event and can no longer attend it, please cancel your own registration on either the CTPA website's calendar or the WildApricot app.

    Go City & eATLAS

    Wednesday, June 12 from 3:00-4:00 pm

    Zoom Virtual Program

    This informative virtual session focuses on two vendors that can enhance your tour guide platforms while also earning you a little money...

    As Chicago guides, we are often asked about the city's most popular attractions and the best ways to get tickets to them. Dipak Patel will share how Go City offers discounted passes to the most in-demand sites along with some you won't find anywhere else in a centralized, flexible platform that also offers guides commissions.

    CTPA Tour Guide Kelly Kniewel will highlight several features with the eATLAS app, including using it to share photos with guests on in-person tours, creating app-based tours of your own earning you additional revenue, and an upcoming CTPA scavenger hunt.

    Here are the Zoom login instructions: 

    I hope to see you soon for this interesting event!
