BOMA/Chicago Presents Chicago Returns Week May 2-6

Chicago Returns Week May 2-May 6: Celebrate the end of the pandemic and a return of Chicago’s downtown to the vibrant business district that is once again full of opportunity, connections, and culture. Emphasize the importance of well-being that comes from being in the office, including the amazing lifestyle amenities inside our buildings and all around our downtown including restaurants, bars, retailers, music, museums, and other cultural institutions. Promote building safety, benefits of working in-office, public transportation, public safety, and restaurants and retailers open for business.
