GlobalPhilly™2015, the largest International program in the Philadelphia region in 2015

There is no doubt, Philadelphia is a world-class city of cultural, political and economic note. Otherwise, why would the Pope choose to visit our city out of all the dynamic metropolises in the country? Why would the New York Times feature Philadelphia as its third place to visit in the world in 2015?

Asmaa Lahlou, for GPA -- GlobalPhilly™2015 is designed to continue raising the international profile of our region and to promote this message even further. To reach all Philadelphians and global-minded people in the region and beyond the United States to visit, live, work and invest here. 

GlobalPhilly™2015 in a nutshell

The previous exposition reached 500,000 people in the region with a total attendance of 25,000 people for 117 events over 47 days. As such, it received great media coverage from print, radio, TV and online outlets.

In 2015, GP15 will span two months from September 15 to November 15 and will show the world what a global region Philadelphia is through 150+ events covering Arts & Culture, Advocacy, Business, Cuisine, Education, Heritage, Sports and Science & Technology, reaching the diverse neighborhoods of Philadelphia and its five counties.

Among many others, the exposition will feature international signature events of the region such as the World Trade Center’s International Showcase, Ciao Philadelphia!, the Mexican Independence Festival, United Nations Day, CHOP’s Global Health Symposium, the World Heritage City symposium and much more.
