SAVOR…Chicago is aligned with the Metropolitan Pier & Exposition Authority’s goal to expand business partnerships to minority and women-owned businesses. We are also committed to working within the local community to purchase goods and services.

SAVOR collaborates with local restaurateurs to bring Chicago flavor to McCormick Square. We partner with several vendors from South Side institutions like Josephine’s by Mother Wade, to up-and-comer Evelyn’s Food Love, as well as sourcing local bakery products. SAVOR is proud to have long-standing relationships with many local restaurants and suppliers. We are committed to keeping the greater part of every dollar we earn within the communities we serve.

Each year, SAVOR hosts a Supplier Diversity Fair designed to attract diverse and local firms interested in doing business at McCormick Square. We’ve also streamlined online vendor registration. Prospective vendors can complete an online form at: https://www.mccormickplace.com/about/doing-business/

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Policy

Through our vision to connect the world through inspiration, innovation, and imagination our focus is to nurture and sustain a global inclusive culture; where differences drive innovative solutions that meet the needs of our Team Members.

Diversity is the range of human differences, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, social class, physical ability, or attributes, religious or ethical value systems, national origins, and political beliefs.

Inclusion is the culture in which a mix of people can come to work, feel comfortable, and confident to be themselves, work in a way that suits them and is able to deliver on business objectives. Our inclusion practices will ensure that everyone feels valued and importantly, adds value.

SAVOR and ASM at McCormick Place equitably promotes all our team members being valued, respected and supported in the workplace.

SAVOR and ASM at McCormick Place recognizes that our most valuable asset is our team members, who deliver above expectations every day for our clients, partners, and stakeholders. Diversity is a mentality. We recognize that having a diverse collection of individuals with different genders, ages, cultural backgrounds, experiences, and sexual orientations is not only how we will define our diversity, but it is how we plan to cultivate and expand the talents of our workforce.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion practices largely impact our business, the benefits of promoting a unique and talented workforce can be seen through better decision making, increased profitability and productivity, and enhanced employee engagement and retention.
