Embassy Suites Chicago - O'Hare/Rosemont Hotel, IL - Exterior at Night

Welcome to the 2019 RP Social at Chicago O'Hare website!


The Midwest and the Chicago area finally gets a Social this decade.

Adjacent to Chicago O’Hare - one of the most central airports in the country with lots of direct flights.

Most attendees will be able to take a direct flight of less than 3 hours that should be relatively inexpensive.
Free hotel shuttle when you get here.

Rosemont Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) Blue Line Station is a short walk (6 blocks) from the hotel, which takes you to downtown Chicago.  There is a free shuttle to take you there and back near our hotel.

The RP Social is an annual (since 1998!) gathering of folks that have RP, Usher Syndrome or other retinal degenerative diseases. There are no workshops, seminars or presentations - it's just a great opportunity to get together to share experiences, stories, technology, etc. while just plain having FUN!

This year's RP Social is at The Embassy Suites - Chicago O'Hare Rosemont which has a restaurant, bar, an indoor pool, fitness center and huge Atrium where our included full breakfast including omelet station is held.  Every evening, there is a complimentary evening cocktail reception.  Our Hospitality Suite serving snacks is located off of the Atrium.
Our hotel is adjacent to the Rosemont Restaurant / Entertainment Park which has over a dozen restaurants plus bowling, air hockey, foosball, billiards, indoor skydiving, free concerts and a comedy club.  In addition, there is the Fashion Outlets Shopping Mall two blocks away.  These are all accessible from the free Rosemont Circulator shuttle which picks up near our hotel.

I have arranged for three optional sightseeing trips to downtown Chicago.  See Schedule & Tours in the Menu in upper left.

Come join us! It truly is a great experience just hanging out with fellow RP/Ushers friends.  This social event is also a great 'eye-opening' experience for many of our sighted spouses and/or family and friends.  Just fill out the registration form, send in your registration fee, get your hotel rooms reserved, book that flight or train and prepare to have FUN!  You will be glad you came.
We hope to see you there!

Your 2019 RP Social Host,
