Philadelphia skyline

Featuring an easy blend of the historic and modern, Philadelphia has something for every attendee on your list! While a visit to the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and Constitution center is high on the list of history buffs, other visitors will enjoy a variety of shopping, eating, and entertainment options throughout the city such as the family-friendly Franklin Square.

Art lovers can take in the vast collection at the Philadelphia Museum of Art or the Rodin Museum, which features the largest collection of Auguste Rodin’s work outside of Paris. Meanwhile, the sports fans in your group will delight in Philadelphia’s offerings as one of only 8 metropolitan areas with all major sports (NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, and MLS) represented. And, of course, make sure to take some time during your stay to try one of the area’s famous Philly Cheesesteaks!

For The Meeting or Event Planner

Arranging travel to Philadelphia is easy with 40% of the United States population within a day’s drive of the metro area… and New York and Washington D.C. attendees can easily hop aboard the Amtrak Acela Express. Attendees living further away will find a plethora of flights into and out of Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). Meeting and Event Planners will be happy to find an estimated 10,000 hotel rooms within walking distance of the Philadelphia Convention Center (PCC) that can be used to accommodate out of town guests.

The Convention Center, itself, offers plenty of options for a wide-variety of groups. The space includes 1 million square feet of saleable space, 82 total meeting rooms, and features a 55,400 square foot ballroom – the largest of its kind on the East Coast!
