Why Choose Philadelphia


The Telly Awards is the premier award honoring the finest film and video productions, groundbreaking web commercials, videos and films, and outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs. The group honored the PHLCVB with a silver award in the Online Video - Travel/Tourism category for Here for the Making: PHL & The African American Experience which was produced by PHLDiversity as part of our PHL: Here for the Making joint attraction campaign and a bronze award for in the same category for PHL: Here For The Making, the cornerstone video of the campaign.

Philadelphia has always enjoyed a reputation as a city overflowing with history and culture. In addition to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, visitors and locals alike experience our rich, diverse history that underlines the very fabric that helped build Philadelphia.

Come explore our dynamic neighborhoods and attractions, world-renowned restaurants and eclectic shopping (clothing and shoe purchases are tax-free!). From one of the country’s oldest and largest “Gayborhoods” to thriving African American, Latino, Native American and Asian communities, our city is open and welcoming to visitors of all backgrounds and cultures.

Best of all, Philadelphia's compact downtown places all of this and so much more within a short walk or cab ride from the Pennsylvania Convention Center and any downtown hotel.

PHLDiversity raises Philadelphia’s profile as an ethnically diverse convention and visitor destination by showcasing our city’s vibrant multicultural communities, and by encouraging social responsibility in the hospitality industry.  We understand that, in order to be a leader, we must go beyond simply accepting "equal opportunity" – we must value and embrace diversity as a strategic competitive advantage.
