What's Going On Week After Thanksgiving?

So I've booked a trip to downtown Chicago for work the week after Thanksgiving and most of the hotels are all booked up and/or charging much higher prices than usual. What's going on that I have to look forward to that week?

It's probably the Radiological Society's meeting at McCormick Place from the 25th to 30th. Attendance looks to be over 50,000.

Wow, that's HUGE! That would explain it. Maybe I'll get an X-ray while I'm out there
