The Exhibit Hall at the Parliament

At the physical heart of the Parliament of the World’s Religions is the Parliament Exhibit Hall. Nonprofit organizations from the grassroots to international level, universities, religious traditions, and vendors are showcased in an exhibit hall like no other. The Exhibit Hall provides a unique opportunity to gather and exchange information and knowledge, to build new relationships, and to engage the senses.

In the Lakeside Center of McCormick Place, the Parliament Exhibit Hall will exist right at the nexus of activity and traffic. Attendees will flow into the Exhibit Hall from the main entrance of the building and will travel through the Exhibit Hall to get to the Main Stage.
