Pennsylvania Passed Legislation Lifting Resort Casino

Gaming Access Restrictions


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, King of Prussia, PA (November 2017) -- Legislation signed into law by Governor Wolf on Monday, October 30 expands gaming across the Commonwealth and removes requirements that limited casino customers to hotel guests, membership holders and patrons of other resort amenities.


“Since opening five years ago, we have been constrained by the amenities requirements and membership fees which have confused and frustrated our guests,” explained Valley Forge Casino Resort President and CEO Eric Pearson. “We are thrilled to be able to welcome our guests to our casino in the same manner as the other Pennsylvania casinos. Lifting this special requirement for guests to enter the casino allows us to better serve our existing guests, and puts us in a better position to attract new visitors to our property.”


The legislation went into effect immediately upon the Governor’s signature on Monday. Guests began seeing the ease of access on the casino floor late Tuesday afternoon.


The legislation also allows Valley Forge Casino Resort to add up to 250 slot machines and up to 15 poker tables; as well as apply for online gaming and sports betting licenses as they become available.


“Our immediate first steps are to lift the access restrictions. Secondarily we’ll explore the options related to expanding our gaming offerings,” stated Pearson.



As the region’s only full-amenity gaming resort, Valley Forge Casino Resort features a 40,000 square-foot gaming floor with 600 slot machines and 50 table games, plus 100,000 square feet of meeting, conference and banquet facilities and two luxury hotel towers. The Radisson Tower has 483 recently remodeled rooms while the Casino Tower is the perfect complement, offering 150 completely renovated rooms in the heart of the action. The property also offers eight dining options, live entertainment and an exciting nightlife scene. Every Valley Forge employee is dedicated to a culture of impeccable service that is conceived, nurtured and supported by the theme “The House Is Yours.”


This unique hospitality experience is located conveniently on the Main Line, just two miles from the King of Prussia Mall and easily accessible from Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

New Marquee to Brand Pennsylvania Convention Center’s Broad Street Entrance

A new sign will brand the facility’s North Broad entrance below its 475-light wall


PHILADELPHIA (November 21, 2017) - The Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority is finalizing plans to install new marquee signage along the facility’s Broad Street entrance to prominently brand the 2.3 million square foot facility, which attracts more than 1 million annual convention and show attendees. The marquee will expand the Center’s presence on Center City’s Philadelphia’s iconic Broad Street, which is undergoing a major renaissance. 


The Pennsylvania Convention Center projects that the installation of the new illuminated signage, which will feature the name of the facility in large block lettering, will be completed within the next 6 months. LED Lighting will allow the Center to change the lighting of the letters during different seasons or in connection with specific events being hosted at the facility.  


“While many Philadelphia-area residents are familiar with our building and its location, each year we host dozens of major national conventions and meetings that attract thousands of visitors from other cities,” said Gregory J. Fox, chairman of the Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority. “This new signage will make the building more welcoming and easier to identify for out-of-town conventioneers, exhibitors, and meeting attendees.  As the major economic driver of the region’s hospitality industry, it is important that we have the proper branding and signage in place along our Broad Street entrance.” 


The lettering is being designed by Vitetta Architects of Eddystone, Pa, the principal architect on the $786 million expansion of the Center which was completed in 2011. The sign will be installed over the three canopies above the Center’s west entrance along North Broad Street. The letters will be blue in the daytime and backlit white at night. The lettering is designed to be installed just below the programmable, 475 LED light wall located on the facility’s Broad Street façade.


“The completion of the sign installation will coincide nicely with the celebration of the Pennsylvania Convention Center’s 25th anniversary in 2018,” said the Center’s President & CEO John J. McNichol. “As visitors to our city travel along Broad Street, our building will be immediately recognizable to meeting and show attendees.”


Installation of the new signage will require final approval by the Philadelphia Art Commission and completion of a procurement process for a vendor to install the lettering. The Center projects that the new marquee will cost less than $100,000.
