SUMC Summer in Chicago Open House

August 1, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Merchandise Mart in Chicago with a blue sky.

August 1, 2019 | 5 – 7 PM
The Connectory, 222 W Merchandise Mart Plaza Suite 570, Chicago, IL 60654


The weather isn’t the only thing that’s hot this Summer in Chicago. Join SUMC, the City of Chicago, Divvy, and Via at our first open house in our new location: the Connectory in the historic Merchandise Mart.

Shared mobility options like ridehailing, bikesharing, micromobility, and transit are taking the city by storm. At this invite-only event, you can enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres as you learn about the latest developments first-hand.

Featured Speakers:

  • SUMC Executive Director Sharon Feigon will open and share SUMC news.
  • Kevin O’Malley and Isaac Reichman from the City of Chicago will tell us what’s next for scooters in the city.
  • John Criezis from Via will talk about the service’s shared approach to ridehailing and eco-friendly mobility.

Panel presentations will be followed by Q & A and time for networking and refreshments. This will fill up early, so save your spot today!

The Connectory is an Internet of Things co-creation space and incubator developed by Bosch and 1871 and located on the 5th floor of Chicago’s Merchandise Mart.
