On March 22, 2020, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney issued a “Stay at Home” order which took effect on Monday, March 23, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. This new order outlines additional restrictions within the city of Philadelphia that requires all non-essential businesses to close and where possible have staff work from home. This order will remain in effect through April 30, 2020.

As such, we remain committed to serving our customers, working with them to mitigate the impact to their events and rebooking  those events for an appropriate time in the future. 

Additionally, we continue to look at ways to serve our community during this trying time.  Recently, the Pennsylvania Convention Center and Aramark donated 800 pounds of food to Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission and the Valley Youth House’s Achieving Independence Center for distribution to individuals and families in need.

Further updates, regarding Pennsylvania Convention Center events will be communicated on our website at www.paconvention.com and social media channels.
