In National Spotlight for Second Time in 10 Months

As it did with the visit from Pope Francis, Montgomery County rolled out the red (white and blue) carpet for the delegates to the Democratic National Convention, July 25-28. And extending one of the most visible hands of welcome was the Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board.

DNC Bag Stuffing Event

The staff kicked off a historic week with a press event on July 15, with the assembly of 3,000 welcome bags. TV cameras rolled and print reporters jotted notes as 60,000 collateral items were collated by hand and prepped for delivery to 27 area hotels.

The coupons, BoGos and special DNC deals came primarily from VFTCB members:

  • Asher's Chocolates
  • Chaddsford Winery
  • Elmwood Park Zoo
  • Fleming's Steakhouse
  • Greater Philadelphia Gardens
  • iFLY - King of Prussia
  • IBEW Local 98
  • This King of Prussia Mall
  • Lord & Taylor
  • Manor College
  • Menu123
  • Philadelphia Premium Outlets
  • Sesame Place
  • Turtle Creek Golf Course
  • Valley Forge Casino Resort
  • Washington Memorial Chapel

By the time the final gavel fell, VFTCB content related to the DNC, across all social media channels, yielded more than 800 likes, shares, and retweets, and its video views were more than 63,000.
