The Chicagoland Show is Moving!

The November 2018 Chicagoland Antique Advertising, Slot Machine & Jukebox Show is on the move! Now in its 39th year, the long-running show is moving to a bigger location. After much searching in the Chicago area for a large enough venue, Tilt Promotions is happy to announce that the November 16-18, 2018 Chicagoland Show will be the first at its new home at the Lake County Fairgrounds Event Center in Grayslake, IL – just 4 miles off I-94 at the Buckley Rd/IL 137 exit.

Compared to other locations considered, the Lake County Fairgrounds Event Center had many more benefits for the show, including a huge, modern, indoor 62,000+ square foot event center – all dealers will be in the same building – a large, free parking lot, plus a convenient location in the Northern suburbs of Chicago. There is also complimentary wifi throughout the building, as well as the Farmstand Eatery, which offers a wide variety of breakfast and lunch options.

For those visitors coming from out of town, the Lake County Fairgrounds is located between Chicago and Milwaukee, with easy access to both Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport. It is also ¼ mile from the Prairie Crossing commuter rail station in Grayslake. In addition, there are many hotels within a 5-mile radius to choose from. The show will be held on Saturday, November 17 (9:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.) and Sunday, November 18 (9:00 a.m.-2:30.p.m.) – $7/day per adult – kids are free! Dealer set up and preview is on Friday, November 16 (Dealer preview 3-day passes are $50/adult).

You can expect to see all the high-quality jukeboxes, slot machines, arcade games, neon signs, petroliana, breweriana, pinball machines, unique antique advertising and so much more you have come to expect at the Chicagoland Show. The same great show, great new location!
