Philadelphia Zoom Backgrounds

April 16, 2021

Meet in Philadelphia, virtually.

Whether you’re collaborating with colleagues on a video conference call or hosting a virtual happy hour with friends, we invite you to meet in Philadelphia remotely by installing these custom Zoom backgrounds.

Host your next meeting while in Philadelphia’s mesmerizing Magic Gardens or the Grand Hall of the city’s premier meeting venue, the Pennsylvania Convention Center. You can also broadcast in front of the beautiful Philadelphia skyline at sunset, in the reflective 60th floor lobby of the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia, or in Al Capone’s cell at the historic Eastern State Penitentiary.

Backgrounds from the Philadelphia countryside 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.
