Tinley ParkThe newly expanded Tinley Park Convention Center at Interstate 80 and Harlem Avenue in Tinley Park, Ill., has doubled its size and added a host of new amenities for meting, convention, tradeshow and event planners. The convention center expansion, which began in April 2010 and was completed in record time, hosted its first major convention in June 2011 with the National Council of Corvette Clubs Annual Convention, drawing in about 1,000 delegates.
