Venues, Views, and Variety Create Meeting Magic in Chester County’s Brandywine Valley

By Sponsored Content, September 1, 2016

Nestled in southeastern Pennsylvania, minutes from Philadelphia International Airport and just a short drive from New York, Baltimore, and Washington D.C., Chester County’s Brandywine Valley is a scenic space that enjoys an alluring mix of high-tech industry, charming small towns, and culturally driven attractions. With so much to do and so close, it’s a natural destination for everything from national conventions to regional board meetings.

Top-rated conference and event facilities with unique and flexible space along with accommodations of more than 5,000 rooms make planning a breeze, as do the excellent service and warm Brandywine hospitality. Host all-meeting events at The Desmond, or break out sessions on the local campus of Penn State. Retreat and workshop at historical venues like Winterthur, or throw an end-of-conference bash in a stunning spot like the Phoenixville Foundry. Try trust exercises on the ropes course at Treehouse World, or toast a done deal at on of the area’s many craft breweries, wineries, and distilleries.

The Brandywine Valley’s bustling and bucolic downtowns–West Chester, Phoenixville, Kennett Square, and Malvern–make attendees feel welcome instantly, plus serve up amazing local farm-to-table cuisine, boutique shopping, art galleries, and more to enjoy during down time. For an even fuller experience, encourage visits to area attractions like the world famous Longwood Gardens, the glamorous Nemours Mansion, the Brandywine River Art Museum, or the American Helicopter Museum.
