About the Conference

Improve your SG and network with peers while experiencing the history and charm of “The City of Brotherly Love.”

In your free time, snap photos next to the Liberty Bell or by Independence Hall, where colonial leaders adopted Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence. If you’re hungry, try an “authentic” cheesesteak from Pat’s or Geno’s or stroll through the Reading Terminal Market to sample everything from hoagies and water ice to Asian fare and fresh pretzels made by Amish bakers. If you’re a bargain hunter, take advantage of tax-free shopping at some of the nation’s largest retail centers. In the evening, check out Philly’s vibrant nightlife, with venues ranging from local sports bars to trendy clubs and lounges.
