Attendee Experience

Dynamic Space Centrally Located in America’s Birthplace

When you hold a meeting, convention or trade show in Philadelphia, you are not just investing in a building or floor space, you are investing in an experience.

Philadelphia’s location in the center of the Northeast Corridor makes it easy and affordable for attendees to travel here. In fact, 40 percent of the U.S. population is just a day’s drive away. Amtrak’s 30th Street Station is the third-busiest train station in the country. Market East regional rail station, now named Jefferson Station, is linked to our center. And Philadelphia International Airport is just a short ride south.

Famed landmarks, including Independence Hall in America’s most historic square mile, Chinatown and its stunning Friendship Gate and Rittenhouse Square, are all within an easy walk from anywhere in the city, as is Museum Mile, which stretches along Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Organizations working with PHLCVB also may be eligible for customized microsites. The microsites offer content specific to the Convention Center District and includes things to do before and after the convention as well as helful links for exhibitors.
