Why Illinois (Chicago)?
- Chicago, the most populous city of Illinois, offers picturesque skyline calls across the waters of Lake Michigan, lending an impactful first impression that soon reveals world-renowned museums, pulsating nightlife, five-star food, championship sports teams, and perhaps the finest downtown collection of architecture in the world.
- Thanks to two international airports featuring thousands of flight options, it’s also one of the most cost-competitive cities in the U.S.
- While Chicago is lovingly nicknamed “The Windy City”, that moniker has more to do with our politicians than the weather. It’s a moderate four-season lakefront destination.

Sean Kirkland - Global Sales
Sean has witnessed a dramatic evolution in destination management through his career of more than 25 years. That awareness, understanding, and experience makes him an indispensable resource to both 360 Destination Group and our clients as we build an understanding of each client's unique organization, culture, and objectives. Sean’s leadership ensures partnerships are tailored in a manner that inspires confidence, creates greater value, and effectively achieves our client’s goals. In his free time, you'll likely find "Coach" Sean on the field as an assistant coach to his children's various sports activities...but his Saturday mornings are quite often reserved for San Diego area 'Cars n' Coffee' events in his classic 1965 Austin Healey BJ8!
