Due to the latest safety measures addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, hotel venues are canceling events with 50 or more people. The Hospitality Hires Chicago event fits this criterion and is therefore postponed until further notice. We are in communication with the Palmer House Hilton hotel and are looking for alternate dates.

Connecting employers and job seekers is a priority for the Hospitality Hires Chicago Partners, however, the health and safety of our guests, our team, and the hotel staff that help us run the event are critical to this event’s success. We will provide updates as we have them available.
