An Overview of Wintrust Sports Complex 

Wintrust Sports Complex has 116,000 square feet of space. It includes enough hardwood court space for eight basketball courts, twenty-four pickleball courts, sixteen NCAA volleyball courts, and a championship court, a redemption arcade, a laser tag arena, a restaurant, and a meeting space. Wintrust has plenty of space to host sports camps and tournaments, birthday parties, field trips, and corporate receptions. 

In addition to the space and amenities at Wintrust, we also have easy, free, ample parking across three designated lots! Plus, we are located right down the street from nearly a dozen different hotels, making accommodations for out-of-town attendees convenient and easy. We’ve even partnered with AwayTeam Travel to simplify hotel reservation management for event attendees. Our facility is near Chicago Midway Airport and is under 45 minutes from downtown Chicago. Chicago is an ideal area to host regional corporate events, and Wintrust offers the chance for local businesses to escape the chaos of downtown for a day. Plus, our dedicated event team makes planning your next event easy. 

Types of Business Functions to Host at Wintrust 

Corporate events can include any event sponsored and hosted by a company. Depending on the company and the type of event, guests can include employees, stakeholders, customers, potential new employees, or clients. When the guest lists are larger than the conference rooms at the office, the type of event requires a different energy source or a more central location; facilities such as Wintrust have the necessary space. 

Meetings: Sometimes the space available at the office is not enough, especially if the office is fully remote and this meeting needs to be in person. Having a neutral space can be beneficial for meetings that include any type of negotiation. 

Conferences: Open gym space with additional meeting rooms can be the ideal setup for an industry conference. People gathering to discuss industry advancements, learn about upcoming changes, and network with others require a fresh space. 

Team building: Team building is critical to team development, especially when major changes happen in the team layout or the company. Team building days help boost morale, problem-solving skills, and creativity. Some team-building activities can occur in an office or even over a video call, but bringing people together outside their regular office for a day of activities is much more productive. 

Celebrations: Everyone loves a good party. Corporate parties and celebrations include holiday parties, retirement celebrations, launch parties, fundraising galas, team appreciation events, and celebrating business and employee milestones. 

Seminars and Education: Seminars and educational events, such as workshops, aim to educate employees or even customers. Seminars may involve product demonstrations, presentations and speakers, and interactive training.
