Members of the Architect Marketing Institute Mastermind Group traveled to Chicago for a two-day training session held on Monday, April 29thand Tuesday, April 30th. They arrived from cities all over the United States along with the UK, New Zealand, and Costa Rica. During the week prior to the event, Bill Styczynski of Studio21 Architects, hosted early arrivals to a “Taste of Chicago” including dinner at Harry Caray’s, a Cubs game at Wrigley Field, the Chicago Architecture Center, an architectural boat tour, and the John Hancock Observation Deck, among others.
On Saturday evening, Bill hosted a reception at the Studio21 Architects Offices and Studio in Downers Grove. This was followed by a chilly and snowy “Firepit Friday on a Saturday Night TM” at his home – notice the inch plus of snow on the ground in the pictures!
Monday was a full day of training followed by an Architect Marketing Institute dinner at Booth One, located in the Ambassador Hotel. Tuesday was another full day of training followed by dinner at Cantina Laredo. Members who stayed for an additional night toured the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio in Oak Park on Wednesday morning before catching flights back home.
