CSCMP CHICAGO presents:
March Membership Madness:
United Center Tour and Chicago Bulls Game
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 2018
Join the CSCMP Roundtable for a Chicago Bulls United Center stadium tour, presentation and basketball game! … and there’s more!
Our event will start with an exclusive access tour of the United Center, the stadium that is home to the Chicago Bulls and Chicago Blackhawks. We’ll get an insider’s view into the operations of the building – from the unloading docks and storage areas to the food stands to the seats – focusing on the significant logistical coordination to maintain the building and provide seamless support during events. Scott Boyke, Director of Building Operations will lead the tour and presentation followed by networking and refreshments in our reserved event space before we transition to the 200-section to watch Chicago Bulls take on the Denver Nuggets!
About the Venue
In 1988, William Wirtz, owner of the Chicago Blackhawks, and Jerry Reinsdorf, majority owner and Team Chairman of the Chicago Bulls, formed a new partnership to create an arena that would take sports and entertainment into the 21st century.
The United Center, home to the Chicago Blackhawks and Chicago Bulls, is the largest arena in the United States. Construction was begun in April of 1992, with the ribbon cutting ceremony being held on August 18, 1994.
Since opening, the United Center has hosted over 200 events each year. Some of the events the United Center has been proud to host include the 1996 Democratic National Convention, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Paul McCartney, U2, The Who, The 3 Tenors, Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Disney on Ice, the Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament, the Men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament, the Great Eight Classic, Illinois College Basketball, and Champions on Ice. The United Center has hosted over forty million guests since its opening in 1994.
