Philly for Tomorrow

November 12


The Association of Philadelphia Tour Guides is planning an all-day event on Saturday, November 12, with speakers and panels covering current topics of interest in Philadelphia. In this new post-covid world, how will Philadelphia retain its global importance? What initiatives are on the horizon and what impact will they have on tourists and residents? What information can be shared with tour guides and other members of the public to enable them to promote the city to visitors in the best possible way?

Topics to be covered are tourism and city initiatives post-covid; a panel on development and revitalization (new projects – explanation and impact, community interaction); arts & culture (emphasis on new initiatives); Philadelphia’s upcoming birthday celebrations in 2024 and 2026; a panel on the food scene (trends, economies of neighborhoods, environmentally conscious, ethnic options); winding up with a closing reception.

Any APT members interested in assisting on the planning committee should contact and The committee is particularly looking for a graphic designer who can make a program booklet and design a sponsor banner. All help welcome and appreciated!
