Make Philadelphia the home for your next record-breaking meeting or convention - a city that's "here for the making." In the heart of Center City is the grand Pennsylvania Convention Center - an architectural beauty central to the city's most exciting attractions. The gold LEED-certified facility features more than one million square feet of saleable space, the ability to host two major tradeshows simultaneously, the largest ballroom in the Northeast, 79 meeting rooms, and a soaring Grand Hall in a historic train shed -- all managed by nationally respected facility management SMG. And now, new work rules and exhibitor rights make it even easier to meet in Philadelphia.
With more than 11,000 hotel rooms ranging from
concept boutiques to World-renowned brands, Philadelphia was named Travel magazine’s “Top Hotel City” in 2014.
Planning and facilitating your event will be a breeze with
the Philadephia Convention and Visitors Bureau’s three
congresses: PHLSports, PHLLife, and PHLDiversity, all here to help planners increase attendance and grow sponsorship opportunities.
The birth place of America, Philadelphia is a visionary
city with an entrepreneurial spirit. Between our historic
blocks and skyscrapers, a modern Renaissance is taking place. Our eclectic and impressive dining scene has
garnered global attention from Iron Chefs, Top Chefs, and
James Beard award-winners, while festivals like the Roots
Picnic, Wawa Welcome America, and Jay-Z’s Made in America exemplify the talent and creative spirit bursting from our streets.
Our “city of neighborhoods” is also one of America’s most walkable with all Philadelphia has to offer right at your doorstep. Just across Broad Street is Museum Mile, where institutions like the Barnes Foundation house the world’s largest impressionist art collection outside of Paris. For those looking to sample Philadelphia’s local flavors, stroll into the Reading Terminal Market, a gastro-hub with dozens of local merchants, conveniently connected to the Center, or continue to the 9th Street Italian Market, the oldest and largest outdoor market in America.
Getting here couldn't be easier either. Our sophisticated transportation network links the Philadelphia International Airport, which services 30 airlines offering nearly 550 daily departures to 126 cities, including 39 international destinations, and Amtrak’s 30th Street Station directly to the Convention Center and downtown — all through accessible regional rail and subway lines. In fact, the airport is a mere 25 minutes from Center City. Philadelphia continues to write a vibrant story, and we want your meeting to be part of it.
