Committed to ensuring a positive experience for planners and attendees. Philadelphia’s work rules inside the Convention Center have dramatically improved over the last five years. With ASM Global managing the facility and a new – and already extended – Customer Satisfaction Agreement, we have seen a strong improvement in customers’ intent to return.
