I did a Google search to see if Chili-Con ended up becoming a thing. I visit Chicago pretty frequently and would absolutely attend. It's only a 2 hour drive from Grand Rapids. I'm sure things got stalled a bit because of everything going on.
If this does move forward in the future, another company that would probably sponsor would be Grow Green Wellness. They're a new shop in the area looking to expand and I'm sure they'd be interested in gaining more visibility across the lake.
