2019 World Heritage City Celebration

Save the date for Global Philadelphia Association's 
fourth annual World Heritage City Celebration on September 5, 2019


Philadelphia's designation as a World Heritage City (the first in the United States) connects us to a community of 280 other World Heritage Cities across the globe. Together, we will be celebrating our unique heritages and common bonds by marking World Heritage Cities Solidarity Day on September 5th.

You're invited to join us for our annual celebratory dinner, a festive evening with an energizing lineup of live entertainment, networking with international guests and distinguished leaders from throughout the Philadelphia region, and a nationally renowned keynote speaker.


Join us as we welcome our esteemed keynote speaker and broadcast pioneer, Vernon Odom.
