Chicago’s Team Building Company

By Linda Whitlock

At CEI, we are proud to celebrate over 30 years as Chicago’s Team Building company. From our founding as birthday party and corporate picnic creators in the 80’s to our current innovative team events, CEI has grown into a respected force in the hospitality industry. Our roots and connection to Chicago remain strong as we collaborate with outstanding organizations and support local charities. We are thankful for all the amazing relationships we’ve established over the years and we appreciate your continued support!

Industry Insights and Strategies

DID YOU KNOW…?? That Chicago has its very own Made In Chicago museum? While hoping to open their physical exhibit in a new space for 2021, this online museum is open 24/7 and features little-known artifacts dating as far back as 1900. And, of course, it’s all MADE IN CHICAGO! “From old advertising tins to tools, toy trains, telephones, and typewriters, each product included in the Made-In-Chicago Museum provides a rabbit hole to its own unique little origin story—complete with the innovators, immigrants, entrepreneurs, and working stiffs who delivered it to the world.” A visit to this amazing virtual treasure vault will introduce you to Chicago’s industrial history through vintage, everyday objects to better understand how our beautiful city became one of the manufacturing capitals of the world.
