Q: Tell us about the University Center of Lake County.

A: The building was designed exclusively for learning and meetings. We offer the most modern amenities, state of the art technology and flexible space to accommodate virtually any business event. Additionally, we offer more than 100 degree and certificate programs in the evening and on weekends from 21 Illinois colleges and universities.

Q: What is the hot trend in the industry?

A: The use of technology to enhance meetings and conferences is on the upswing -- as you would expect. For example, videoconferencing is increasingly being used to connect people real time around the country in one virtual event, and we are well positioned to offer such technologies for enhancing and extending meetings.
