Our Location

The Illinois Web Con is hosted at the I Hotel and Conference Center in Champaign situated at the heart of University of Illinois’ Research Park, a technology hub that supports startups, tech incubators, Fortune 500 company extensions, and more. We’re proud to call the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the micro-urban, twin cities of Champaign and Urbana home. A 2019 study measuring the startup ecosystems of an 11-state region called the “Silicon Prairie” ranked Champaign-Urbana No. 2 out of 42 communities analyzed for startup and entrepreneurial activity.
