Philadelphia’s regional economy relies on the billions of dollars generated each year by meetings and conventions.  With the help of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce and other partners, last year, we celebrated 14 Bring it Home! Champions, all local business leaders, at our Annual Luncheon and presented each with a Rocky statue (and bragging rights) for bringing a meeting or convention home to Philadelphia.

This campaign has proved a big ROI: since the campaign launched, it has generated $19 million in conventions with only a $130,000 investment.

You can win bragging rights in 2010 by becoming a Bring it Home! Champion this year! Call the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau at 215-636-3300 or visit www.PhiladelphiaUSA.travel/bringithome.
