Sika USA is bringing its popular ‘365’ Event Series to the Chicago area on Thursday, June 9 at Drury Lane Theatre and Conference Center and Wednesday, May 25 at the Palmer House downtown.

Chicagoland 365 will explore the many ways in which the Chicago of tomorrow is shaped by the choices we make, every day.

The June 9 event will take place from 2:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Michael Singletary, NFL Hall-of-Famer, will keynote and Cliff Brewis, vice president of editorial operations, Dodge Data and Analytics, will discuss the construction trends and economy in the Chicagoland area.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to share ideas, earn continuing education credits and see hands-on technology demos in two tracks: Architectural and Construction which will include opportunities to earn multiple American Institute of Architects (AIA) and RCI continuing education credits and a Manufacturing and Auto Glass track with hands-on technical demos and an automotive glass replacement technician training certification program.

The May 25 event will take place at Chicago’s historic Palmer House hotel, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and will focus exclusively on architectural and construction trends. An educational session will look at “Design Considerations for the Modern Building Envelope” and those who attend will earn one AIA or RCI continuing education credit hour. 

Both events will conclude with a cocktail hour, featuring an open bar, where attendees can share insights and ideas, and network with their peers. 

“Our inaugural 365 event in Dallas/Fort Worth was a huge success and we wanted to bring the same unique experience to Chicago,” said Jay Thomas, vice president, marketing, roofing and flooring for Sika. “The Chicago market is growing rapidly and Sika is proud to have been integral to some of Chicago’s most remarkable and iconic projects, so it seemed like the perfect fit.”
