Philadelphia, PA – Philadelphia was the star of the show at the Invest: Philadelphia launch conference. Covering topics like healthcare, education and innovation, the standing room-only crowd was enrapt throughout the entire event. The 2019 edition, which debuted at the inaugural launch event on January 24, 2019, highlights the five-county region of Greater Philadelphia, including Philadelphia, Montgomery, Bucks, Delaware and Chester counties, with special focus chapters on the City of Chester and the dynamic neighborhoods in the City of Philadelphia. The launch conference took place at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel in Center City with over 300 people in attendance.
Following a short networking breakfast, the program began with an insightful keynote speech by Director of Commerce Harold Epps, who highlighted Philadelphia as a City on the Rise that has an abundance of offerings for talent and businesses alike. “Our economic success is all the more reason for Philadelphia to double down and keep moving forward,” said Epps.
