Our Hustle Makes it Happen

June 28, 2019

Modern Spirit of Can-Do

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.
