As the region’s official tourism marketing agency, VISIT PHILADELPHIA builds Greater Philadelphia’s image, drives visitation to it, and boosts its economy. VISIT PHILADELPHIA’s goal is to increase the number of visitors, the number of nights they stay, and the number of local things they do when they are here. These marketing efforts do more than entertain our guests—they also enhance the quality of life, and sense of civic pride, of our residents. We build Philadelphia’s brand and its image. We give Philadelphia a voice through advertising campaigns, media relations, websites, and social media. It’s important that people feel that they know a destination—it’s what makes them want to visit. Today, VISIT PHILADELPHIA is recognized as an industry leader in tourism marketing. It’s had a transformational impact on the region, changing its perception in the eyes of the world.
The President & CEO of VISIT PHILADELPHIA oversees a 501(c)(3) tourism marketing organization with a budget that ranges from $12 to $15 million and 56 employees.
