destination philadelphia


Boasting a unique fusion of rich history and youthful energy, Philadelphia is a true Modern Renaissance city! As the second largest city on the East Coast and close to other popular destinations, Philadelphia is the premiere choice for US and global meeting professionals. Famously coined the City of Brotherly Love, visitors feel warmly welcomed as they experience the vibrant streetscapes lined with parks, public art, restaurants and museums.

Philadelphia is currently rated America’s #1 city for culture by Travel + Leisure for good reason: Philadelphia is home to the country’s most iconic historical places and people, including Independence Hall, the birthplace of the U.S. Constitution.  With the Philadelphia Museum of Art and its infamous Rocky steps, internationally celebrated Barnes Foundation and transcendent Mural Arts phenomenon, the city offers a striking art collection for enthusiasts on every level.  Philadelphia has also flourished into a culinary mecca for foodies. From the city’s infamous cheesesteak challenge to fine dining restaurants featuring some of the country’s most decorated chefs, Philadelphia cuisine delights the most discerning and adventurous palates.

With architecture rivaled only by its gorgeous parks, Philadelphia holds the title of largest city-owned urban park in the world that includes picturesque Boathouse Row and Love Park. Fourteen friendly neighborhoods offer something for everyone, from family friendly outings to high-end shopping; designer hotel stays to quaint bed and breakfasts. And a visit to Philadelphia would not be complete without a visit to Avenue of the Arts theater district and its performance and music venues bursting with local flair.

Philadelphia offers affordable, accessible, innovative and impeccable amenities with old world charm. We invite you to experience Philadelphia’s hospitality for your next meeting or event.
