If you are taking public transit from the airport to the hotel, it's
really easy. Just get on the blue line at O'Hare and take it to the
Jackson stop. Club Quarters is just West of the intersection of Clark
As far as getting to IIT, if you don't mind taking the bus, then you
can catch the southbound #24 on Clark (same block as CQ) and take it
to 33rd and Wentworth. You'll have to walk just at a quarter of a
mile east on 33rd once you get off. Also, from CQ you can go over to
State and take the #29 South to State and 33rd. You'll be on the same
block as the conference center.
If you want to take the L, walk East on Adams to Wabash and get on the
Southbound Green line train. Take it to Bronzeville/IIT. It will
drop you off behind the SSV dorm on the on IIT campus. You could also
get on the Red line at State and Adams and take it South to Sox/35th.
Whether you take green or red, exit on the North exit of the platform.
It will get you closer to the conference.

Google map's transit view.
