Join your hospitality industry colleagues for HUG Chicago 2012 on Thursday, April 26

HUG Chicago is a volunteer program created by Hospitality Cares Chicago (HCC), a not-for-profit partnership between the Chicago Convention & Tourism Bureau and Chicago’s hospitality and civic organizations. HCC and its partner organizations are dedicated to the beautification and protection of Chicago’s structural assets visible to and accessed by visitors to Chicago.

The HCC Steering Committee has identified a variety of high-traffic areas throughout the city that are accessed by visitors and need a “hug” from our volunteers. HUG Chicago 2012 is proudly sponsored by the Chicago Cubs and is the city’s official kick-off to National Tourism Week.
