When you hold a meeting, convention or trade show at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, 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 is linked to our center. And Philadelphia International Airport is just a short ride south.
Located in the heart of the City of Philadelphia -- both geographically and culturally -- the Convention Center boasts famed landmarks within short walks of our facility, including Independence Hall in America’s most historic square mile, Chinatown and its stunning Friendship Gate, and Rittenhouse Square. Outside of our western entrance is Museum Mile, which stretches along Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Attached to the facility is the culinary melting pot known as Reading Terminal Market, which offers a vast choice of mouthwatering regional and international food.
