Building Entry-Exit Procedure (B.E.E.P.)

The B.E.E.P program is in full time operation at McCormick Place and Wintrust Arena. Represented labor and event contractors will enter the building through designated points. Cleared workers will then receive a one-day wristband that indicates they are part of that day’s crew. This wristband must be worn on the wrist, no exceptions.

To assist in the checking-in process, fully registered individuals may use their Driver’s License/State ID or a McCormick Place B.E.E.P. Card at one of our designated Check-In locations.

Event Contractors or Vendor managers must ensure that their employees are registered in our Check-In System prior to entering the McCormick Place campus.
