Philadelphia is the completely clear-cut choice for your next meeting, offering shopping, nightlife, arts, culture, and dining. The list of all Philadelphia has to offer within a compact, walkable downtown is as long as its history.

Add in one of the country's premier facilities, the Pennsylvania Convention Center, excellent venues throughout the city and award-winning hospitality industry and it's easy to see why so many regard Philadelphia as the complete package for meeting planners.

Located in the heart of downtown Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Convention Center -with one million square feet of saleable space and the largest ballroom on the East Coast-is one of the few convention centers designed to be uniquely woven into the city's landscape. Within a short, safe and scenic walk, visitors have access to literally hundreds of restaurants, shops, cultural institutions, attractions, and other downtown amenities, not to mention 8,500 hotel rooms. On June 5, 2013, the Pennsylvania Convention Center Board selected SMG to operate and manage the Convention Center.
