2019 National Leadership Conference

November 6-10, 2019
Hyatt Regency Schaumburg, 1800 East Golf Road, Schaumburg, IL 60173


In just a few weeks close to 400 leaders from across the US and Mexico will come together in Hoffman Estates for the annual Bigger, Better, Stronger Together Leadership Conference. Board members; professional business executives/owners, educators, therapists, GiGi’s Playhouse site managers and program-specific volunteers will gather to train, share ideas, learn about new initiatives and connect with peers who are changing the way the world views Down syndrome from their communities.

After last year’s event, Chief Belief Officer, Nancy Gianni shared “The GiGi’s Playhouse Leadership Conference was amazing! 5 days, 56 GiGi’s Playhouse locations, 300 leaders, 80 sessions, 40 speakers, 2 countries and one unstoppable voice for Down syndrome! The energy was through the roof! The growth we see at GiGi’s goes so far beyond the number of Playhouses and families we serve but to the personal growth in each and every one of our leaders! From Judges and CEO’s to Mothers and Doctors, and even a Nun, the GiGi’s leaders are pushing themselves beyond what they ever thought possible and truly changing the way the world sees Down syndrome and sending a global message of acceptance for all! Look out world, we’re coming at ya!”

It would be an enormous understatement to say we are excited to impact, growth, and motivation that will come from the 2019 conference!  WE wanted to take a moment to thank the GENEROUS sponsors who help make this all possible.  Please click on the logos to be taken to these companies’ websites and learn more!
