Parking and Cabbing

Traffic is usually heavy in the morning during normal commute hours in Chicago, and there is considerable construction in and around Navy Pier.  Please expect heavy traffic and allow extra time for travel, parking and getting to the Global Small Business Forum. The Forum registration starts promptly at 7:30 a.m. Central.

Parking:  Ample parking is available at Navy Pier. We recommend that you park in the East Parking Garage. There you can access Navy Pier’s dock street through Doors 8-11.  Door 11 is the furthest East door for access to the Global Small Business Forum.  If you are considering alternate parking options, we recommend using SpotHero to reserve discounted parking in advance.
