A note for our Chicagoland business community:

We know there’s a lot that’s in flux right now with postponed and cancelled travel. But we want you to know we’ve got your back. Your business doesn’t have to miss a beat.

Though out-of-town engagements have been scrapped, that important work can still be accomplished at a destination that’s within reach. You can recover from cancelled events and #MeetLocally.

Some important factors to consider when you move forward with a local meeting:

  • Be aware of the flexibility in your venue’s contract regarding cancellations and rescheduling.

We know companies may have to pay penalties for cancelled events outside of Chicago. To help soften the blow of those fees, we’re happy to offer 15% off room charges for your new local meeting at Catalyst Ranch for the month of March.

Additionally, for any new meetings booked for March, we’re broadening our cancellation policies for your peace of mind. For newly booked March meetings that may eventually be cancelled due to COVID-19, we’ll offer rescheduling within 12 months, or cancellation with a full refund without penalties or fees.

  • Stay current with local and national updates on safety precautions.

Rest assured that we are adhering to all current CDC and Illinois Department of Public Health guidelines, as your safety is our top priority. To see the extra precautions we’re taking, see our Catalyst Ranch Extra Measures.

  • Utilize videoconferencing to include your teammates who remain outside of Chicago.

To help broaden the reach of your local meeting, we offer videoconferencing via WebEx technology to include your faraway colleagues. Normally a $500 value, we’re able to offer this service complimentary to a limited number of clients per day. Please call us for more info.


We know folks everywhere are troubleshooting to get back on track. We’re eager to help your business continue forward, safely and sensibly.

Give us a call, and we’ll find a solution to keep your company’s important events in play.
