Tips and Tricks to getting the most out of your visit

  • You can get 20% off if you use an airport shuttle from Go Airport Express and the Automation Fair booking code/number: 1-888-284-3826 or code AUTOMATION
  • Get on the earlier shuttles to get to the show before the crowd. More one-on-one time and less jostling equals a better show experience.
  • Use the free shuttles for the show to take you close to dinner destinations instead of back to your own hotel
  • Make reservations at popular restaurants, or leave the show early to beat the crowd
  • Plan your day at the show ahead of time, or use the mobile app, so that you aren’t walking back an forth to find certain vendors. Plan a direct route that doesn’t overlap efforts.
  • Be selective with badge scans – each scan probably means an email, and you don’t want to lose the important contacts in the clutter.
  • Use Uber to call rides directly, instead of trying to hail a cab. Remember: You rate your Uber driver after the ride but they also rate you, so be a good passenger to get matched with good drivers. We recommend downloading the app before you leave for your trip.
  • Carry cash for cover if you plan to go bar hopping – most bars and music venues will charge a door fee
  • Leave the airport at least three hours ahead of time; Chicago O’hare is a very busy place and Midway takes a while to get to.
