Tips

There are a limited number of elevators at the hotels. So while you may be able to get 40 gymnasts in an elevator, 40 adult-sized people may be a stretch; plus the stop on every floor, on the way down, will take time.

We recommend that you plan to leave your room at the Meet Hotel at least 45 minutes earlier than your gymnasts’ warm up time. This allows for approximately 20 minutes to get to the Hotel Lobby, 15 minutes for the bus ride to Navy Pier and 10 minutes to get your gymnast to the entrance of the Festival Hall competition area. There is no check-in required for the gymnasts, so they can skip the admission line at the entrance and proceed directly to their competition gym to meet their coach. Gymnasts should be wearing their club’s competition warm-ups so they can easily be identified at the entrance to Festival Hall. (It never hurts to have a copy of their USA Gymnastics membership card handy, but it is not required to gain entrance for competition.)

The bus drop-off location is to the east of Festival Hall (to the left of the area shown on the map, above). When you enter the building (facing south), turn to the right (west) and look for an escalator, stairway or elevator to go up to the second floor. Continue to the far west end of Festival Hall, where you will find admissions and the meet entrance door.
