Philadelphia Zoom Backgrounds

June 16, 2021

Meet in Philadelphia, virtually.

Whether you’re joining your colleagues remotely for a hybrid event or hosting a virtual happy hour with friends, we invite you to meet in Philadelphia virtually by installing these custom Zoom backgrounds.

Host your next meeting while in front of the Liberty Bell or the Grand Hall of the Philadelphia’s premier meeting venue, the Pennsylvania Convention Center. You can also broadcast in front of the iconic LOVE sculpture, while floating beside William Penn in the Philadelphia skyline, or with the beautiful Boathouse Row in the background.

Backgrounds from Philadelphia Countryside destinations are also available. Choose from Bucks County, Chester County, and Valley Forge. Scenes from the Philadelphia International Airport are also available for use as Zoom backgrounds via the airport’s PHL From Home resource.

To apply your new background on your desktop Zoom app, follow the steps below. To apply the background on mobile devices, please refer to Zoom’s official guidelines. If you’re using Microsoft Teams, you can upload custom backgrounds following these instructions.
