It was a full house on Monday, November 12th, as top media from across Toronto gathered at The Hazelton Hotel to ‘Discover the Unexpected in Philadelphia,’ This was a profile media event arranged by LMA Communications Inc. as the Canadian representatives of the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation (GPTMC).
With special guests from GPTMC in attendance, the group dined on a delicious three-course breakfast provided by ONE Restaurant (recently named one of the 100 Best Hotel Restaurants in the World).
Meryl Levitz, GPTMC president & CEO who talked about the tourism highlights, and Gary Steuer, Chief Cultural Officer for the City of Philadelphia lead the media through the cultural and arts scene in Philadelphia.
Media guests were sent home with a newfound interest and appreciation for the City of Philadelphia. They spoke about the city’s incredible fine arts scene, music and endless dining options, plus many other alluring aspects. Also in attendance were Paula Butler, Vice President of Communications and Donna Schorr, Director of Communications. Many media left eager to visit Philadelphia and were wowed by the endless opportunities for a visitor to the city.
It was a morning of incredibly new information, great food and even better company. We look forward to the next time our friends from Philadelphia come for a visit!
