The Press Room
1134 W. Washington Boulevard
Chicago, 60607


Whether your travel includes this year’s IWF global conference or not, this is a must attend event for all members.  Please join Michael Wood, the Australian council general, known for his humor and storytelling as he presents the best of Australia (including the rules of Cricket for those who are confused!) in one of Chicago’s notable Australian venues.  Build bridges with your fellow members while enjoying wines and gourmet bites and learn a bit more about the 12th largest economy.

We look forward to seeing you there!  Guests are welcome to attend; the more the merrier!

The event will take place at the latest hot spot in the West Loop – The Press Room “Wine Bar” is run by and owned by an Australian and will feature Australian wines and cheeses.   This evening has been designed as a great informational and networking event for all members, not just those attending the conference in Australia.
