Over Columbus Day weekend, the Philadelphia Visitor Experience Conference (PVEC) convened for its fourth annual meeting. PVEC was hosted at the Chemical Heritage Foundation, but included a Tippler’s Tour and some behind the scenes tours of local institutions.

The second year Museum Communications students were invited to document the conference and create media for PVEC’s YouTube channel (soon to come!).

Here are some highlights from the weekend!
