More than 30 years ago, the PHLCVB became one of the first CVBs in the country to establish a division to promote the destination as a diverse and inclusive location for meetings, events, conventions, and visitors. PHL Diversity leads the charge in diversity and inclusion efforts and connects meeting and convention planners with the region’s diverse business community to ensure successful events. We are proud to have hosted a number of notable events and meeting and look forward to assisting you in your planning.
Our team has been privileged to work with many of your colleagues. Take a look at what some of them are saying.
We are committed to ensuring that equality and inclusion are pillars of our destination and we commit to leveraging our strong community connections and our PHL Diversity division to ensure that the economic benefits of tourism extend to all diverse communities in Philadelphia.
In our second episode, we feature PHL Diversity Brain Box and Lead Generation Committee members Tami Sortman, Vice President of the Philadelphia Gay Tourism Caucus, Janice Sykes-Ross, Director of The Belmont Mansion and Carol Watson, General Manager Kimpton Hotel Palomar Philadelphia.
The Brain Box Committee guides PHL Diversity’s journey of innovation by creating new ideas, concepts, and practices. The Lead Generation Committee cultivates and filter leads to increase Philadelphia’s share of the diverse/multicultural meetings and conventions. Together, they are producing our upcoming webinar “Welcoming Multicultural Meetings and Conventions Back: How Philadelphia’s Transportation Hubs are Preparing for Visitors” scheduled for Wednesday, October 14th.
