Technological assets include:

  • Dynamic video walls and digital signage network to spotlight your brand.

  • Cat6 cabling and wireless access points throughout the building.

  • Bandwidth available at 10GB, which makes it possible for multiple devices to connect with optimum speed and scalable delivery.

  • Free WiFi service is available in all public concourses. WiFi is also available in the ballrooms, meeting rooms, and the exhibit halls.

  • A 600-seat theater with Stewart FireHawk G4, 4K Cinema Projector and 7.1 surround sound, ideal for films, corporate meetings, concerts and performances.

The Pennsylvania Convention Center also recently implemented new building and technology upgrades in response to COVID-19. These include meeting room AV devices that allow a presenter to wirelessly connect their own device to the monitor or screen eliminating the need to touch cables, common computers, or to insert USB drives. The Center has also installed KONE UV light sanitization for escalator handrails throughout the building, as well as advanced air purification technology and the ongoing replacement of higher efficiency air filters.
