On November 6, 2015, Philadelphia became the first and only World Heritage City in the United States. Recognized for its unique history, the city is now in a position to preserve that heritage while leveraging the designation as a powerful economic engine. How does Philadelphia protect its historical and cultural assets in a way that also fosters the growth of a modern, world-class city? At the 15th Annual Builders Conference, the Building Industry Association of Philadelphia will explore how our city can embrace the promise of its future while honoring the glory of its past.
