Host an event in Philadelphia’s Stadium District
Philadelphia’s football, baseball, basketball and hockey teams all play in stadiums located just a short ride away from the Pennsylvania Convention Center and Center City. This section of the South Philadelphia, called the Stadium District, stands out when compared to many other cities due to the venues’ close proximity to one another. Public transportation runs straight to the complex, with extra lines available to be added and discounted passes that can be offered for groups.
There are thousands of hotel rooms in a short distance of the Stadium District, including the Courtyard Philadelphia South at Navy Yard, new Live! Casino & Hotel, and all Center City hotels which are accessible via public transit, plus food service is available on-site at each of the venues listed below. The staff in each of the three arenas and the multi-faceted entertainment complex is knowledgeable on how to manipulate and transform the spaces to create seamless event experiences that can together accommodate more than 130,000 people.
