Club Level Highlight

The Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau

As the official tourism promotion agency for the City of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau is focused on positioning Philadelphia for success once international travel resumes, and the city can once again welcome overseas visitors.

To help facilitate recovery for the city’s hospitality and tourism businesses, the PHLCVB launched the PHL Health Pledge in partnership with the City of Philadelphia, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the region’s renowned life sciences and medical community and institutions, along with the city’s hospitality business partners. Working together as one, Philadelphia’s hospitality community is displaying unstoppable ingenuity to ensure a safe return to travel, meetings, and events – key messages displayed in the PHLCVB’s new Unstoppable Philadelphia video.

For more insights on overseas visitation into Philadelphia and the economic impact on the leisure travel segment, view the PHLCVB’s Research and Resources.

The Department of Community and Economic Development’s mission is to encourage the shared prosperity of all Pennsylvanians by supporting good stewardship and sustainable development initiatives across our commonwealth. With a keen eye toward diversity and inclusiveness, we act as advisors and advocates, providing strategic technical assistance, training, and financial resources to help our communities and industries flourish. Pennsylvania’s Office of International Business Development (OIBD) is committed to supporting Pennsylvania companies by working with them to increase their export sales and attracting foreign companies to invest in Pennsylvania.

By partnering with a Regional Export Network and managing a global network of Authorized Trade Representatives, OIBD provides unrivaled services and expertise for both new-to export companies and experienced exporters seeking new markets. OIBD’s Investment staff and its network of eight investment contractors work closely with the Governor’s Action Team (GAT), local governments, and economic development agencies around the commonwealth to promote Pennsylvania as a compelling business investment location for international companies. OIBD, an agency within the Department of Community and Economic Development, is a long-time partner and supporter of the BABCPHL. We are proud to collaborate with them on both sides of the Atlantic. Special thanks to David Briel, Richard Kilner, Declan Barry and their team for their work in strengthening ties with the United Kingdom, which is Pennsylvania’s leading investor and fifth largest trading partner.
