Become an Exhibitor



The Chicago Collective takes place on the 7th Floor of The Mart, in the heart of downtown Chicago. The show floor features an intimate loft-like environment. Windows surround the entire show space offering impressive city views and a very bright and open atmosphere.

The Mart was recently renovated and features tons of amenities like a brand new restaurant - Marshall's Landing, Food Hall, access to the CTA, and more!


Booth packages start at $2,400 for a 10x10 (approximate) booth which includes: Hard walls, Carpet, Electrical outlet, Tables/Chairs/Racks/Risers, Wastepaper basket, Booth Sign, Breakfast, Lunch & Opening Night Party.

Instead of being leased by the square foot, booths are leased in approximate 10’x10’ increments.  



Our target attendees are better men's independent specialty store buyers from across the North America. We have a full time Buyer Relations Manager, Kelli Flynn, dedicated to reaching out to new buyers, recommended to us by Exhibitors. Our Team visits stores throughout the U.S. and Canada with personal invitations to the show. Also included in our buyer outreach efforts is our Buyer Travel Reimbursement Program in which all participating Buyers can receive $50 back for each hotel night stayed.

If you are interested in becoming part of Chicago Collective, please contact us as early as possible as availability is very limited for each show.
