Pennsylvania Convention Center

Everything about the Pennsylvania Convention Center (PCC) is distinctive.

It combines historic preservation and architectural innovation with state-of-the-art technology, making it one of the most adaptable, high-tech convention centers in the nation. And, its convenient Center City location means meeting here couldn't be easier.

Located in the heart of downtown Philadelphia, this 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.

Inside, the Convention Center is strictly 21st Century. The meeting facilities and technology are state-of-the-art. And you'll find the ambiance and amenities are hotel-like in both scope and quality.

The soaring Grand Hall and Ballroom occupy the historic Reading Terminal train shed. And the Reading Terminal Market on the ground level has been cleverly incorporated into the design, allowing modern-day visitors to shop there, just as they have been doing since 1892.


The Pennsylvania Convention Center is more dynamic and flexible than ever before. With one million square feet of saleable space, the largest ballroom on the East Coast and comfortable, welcoming lounges, the Center is considered one of the nation's premier meeting and convention facilities.

Add advanced technology, a remarkable art collection and unmatched views of Philadelphia's famous City Hall, and the Pennsylvania Convention Center becomes the complete package and a smart choice for your next event.

Attendees will find a flexible space that combines historic preservation and architectural innovation with state-of-the-art technology . They will appreciate direct access to transportation options - bus, subway, regional rail, taxi - and will discover they can simply walk to our world-class restaurants, shops and cultural attractions. More than 10,000 hotel rooms are within walking distance as well.

The Center's convenient location in the heart of downtown Philadelphia means exploring the City's neighborhoods is as easy as putting on a comfortable pair of shoes! A floor to ceiling glass facade entrance on North Broad Street serves as the gateway to Philadelphia's arts and culture venues on Broad Street and the City's renowned museums along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway , via Lenfest Plaza. The Arch Street entrance lead to the famous Reading Terminal Market and Philadelphia's Historic District.
