Philadelphia Bringing Its Brotherly Love to .travel
One of the most historical cities in America and the nation’s first capital, Philadelphia serves as the centerpiece for American history. The City of Brotherly Love has attained PhiladelphiaUSA.travel to join .travel as part of a campaign by the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau to bring more conventions and tourism to the great city. The PCVB acts as a private non-profit membership corporation for the city of Philadelphia with the goal to acquire worldwide convention and tourism business.
Philadelphia converted to .travel in 2006 to help bring more attention to Philadelphia on the Web. “We wanted a Web site domain name that would set us apart as a great resource for conventions and visitors. We thought using .travel would have an ‘official travel organization’ feel to it that you don’t get from a .com or .org,” said Danielle Cohn, Vice President of Marketing and Communications with Philadelphia’s Convention and Visitors Bureau, “.travel ensures that those wanting information on tourism, meetings, conventions, and international travel have a trusted source.”
