Promoting Greater Philadelphia’s Market Growth

Select Greater Philadelphia is excited to launch a new collaborative initiative with NBC10/Telemundo62 called Growing Greater Philadelphia, a novel television and digital program that will highlight our regional business assets and success stories. You will learn about business stories from across Greater Philadelphia that need to be told, and that only broadcast television can deliver in a uniquely compelling way. Camden County Regional Chamber of Commerce is pleased to collaborate with this effort by offering story ideas from our market place for upcoming episodes of Growing Greater Philadelphia! The overarching goal of this project is to enhance Greater Philadelphia’s image and awareness among regional, national, and international audiences as a great place to establish and grow a business by telling the stories of success from across our 11-county community. We recognize and thank the teams at PECO, Virtua, and Sunoco Logistics for their support of this program. Be sure to tune-in to NBC10/Telemundo62 for programming schedules.
