PENJERDEL Forum on Transportation Challenge and Planning Philadelphia's Upcoming Events
Each year Philadelphia welcomes millions of visitors, attracting people with its rich history as well as for major events such as Wawa Welcome America and Made in America Music Festival. The next 15 months will see these numbers go into overdrive, with two historic events taking place in the City of Brotherly Love. Literally millions of visitors will journey to Philadelphia to be present when Pope Francis holds a public mass and attends the "World Meeting of Families Conference" this September. Less than a year after Pope Francis's visit, hundreds of thousands of Democrat party delegates, family members, media and visitors will come to Philadelphia to nominate a 2016 Presidential candidate.
Be among the first business and professional leaders in the PENJERDEL region to hear from three executives who will be tasked with ensuring visitors, as well as permanent residents, safe, timely and seamless transportation to a variety of event venues. Hear firsthand the challenges and plans on how the region will respond.
