With a reputation for limitless imagination and incomparable skills, Pete is widely known as the best treehouse builder in the world.

Parking

iLandscape recognizes that parking at the facility has its challenges. To rectify the situation we have added a spillover lot at Woodfield mall that will be running 5 concurrent shuttles on each morning of the show. There will be no waiting or lines for shuttles in 2018. iLandscape and the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center are committed to making your iLandscape experience pleasant from the moment you park your car.

PARKING IS FREE at the onsite and spillover lots! Get there early – it is best to park closest to the convention center as opposed to the hotel. Guests of the hotel are guaranteed onsite parking spaces.

Spillover Parking (Spillover parking may be in effect as early as 10am on each day of the show) Parking is free onsite but there are limited number of spaces. Should it be required, offsite parking for this event will be located at Woodfield mall. Signage from the convention to this parking area will be in place should directional assistance be required. Shuttles will be available to transport attendees to and from the convention center.
