While certain local and state meeting restrictions do remain in place in the restricted green phase of re-opening, we are working closely with local and state officials to reactivate the Convention Center, as soon as possible.  We have developed a robust Reactivation Plan that includes comprehensive safety measures, facility enhancements and health-conscience policies and procedures to re-open the Center safely. Additionally, the Center is a part of the larger PHL Health Pledge, a new initiative to increase awareness of the destination’s readiness in safely welcoming back visitors as Philadelphia gradually reopens for business. The Health Pledge includes health advisors, resources for safely reopening, and continuing education and innovation as Philadelphia and the Center moves forward with unstoppable ingenuity.
