More than 70 representatives from Sacramento’s business community visited Philadelphia last month to learn about the development of an innovation community.
It was the first time the annual Sacramento Metro Chamber’s study mission came to Philadelphia. The PHL Convention and Visitors Bureau helped coordinate, including its marketing director Danielle Cohn.
Featuring tours (one of N3rd Street), interviews and panel discussions with a broad coalition of Philadelphia creative business community members, including, full disclosure, one with this reporter.
