A city built for major events, Philadelphia has hosted the World Meeting of Families Congress in 2015, which brought Pope Francis to Philadelphia, the Democratic National Convention in 2016, the NFL Draft in 2017, the Eagles Championship parade and the Army-Navy Game in 2018. These monumental events, along with a robust calendar of citywide conventions and sporting events, has showcased and positioned Philadelphia as a premier destination for meetings and events.
The PHLCVB’s experienced sales team focuses on booking meetings, conventions, trade shows and sporting events into the Pennsylvania Convention Center, member hotels and off-site venues. Once conventions are booked, our talented Convention Services team assists you with logistics and event planning, including connecting you with partners to ensure a cost-efficient and profitable event.
