As the summer comes to a close, the Technology Business Management (TBM) Council is preparing for the 3rd annual TBM Conference in Chicago; and this year is going to be better than ever!


While we have the speakers and panels to back that up, we also have some evening events lined up for when you need a break from the keynotes, panels and breakout sessions – a time to let loose and get to know our peers.


We think that conferences should be fun. That’s why #TBMC15 is so much more than the only conference in the world with more than 1,000 of the field’s most forward-thinking IT leaders in attendance; it’s also a time when you can expand your circle of influence at our three partner-sponsored evening events.



Welcome Reception: “Taste of Chicago”


Monday, October 26, 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.


Kick off the conference at the American Craft Kitchen and Bar, located within the Hyatt Regency, for a chance to mingle with other conference attendees during a true Chicago-style event. The evening will include entertainment from a blues band while guests are encouraged to enjoy a “Taste of Chicago” experience, dining on a variety of dishes that represent the city’s different neighborhoods.

The TBM Council Awards recognize the profound impact that these professionals have on their organizations by empowering operational excellence, business innovation, business transformation, TBM vision, and best practices. In the museum, guests will be mesmerized by the gleaming white marble interiors, the 300 year-old fossilized limestone flooring, the sky lit vaulted ceilings, and the beautiful view overlooking Lake Michigan.
