Philadelphia Meetings & Events Management Company to Oversee Operation of The Chemical Heritage Foundation Conference Center

The Hub, LLC announced today its exclusive management agreement with The Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) to oversee all meetings and events at the new CHF Conference Center.

CHF recently expanded its headquarters in Philadelphia to include a $20 million museum and conference space, which will be managed exclusively by The Hub. Management of the CHF Conference Center enables The Hub to offer clients a third location in Philadelphia; the other two facilities are located in the Cira Centre (2929 Arch St.) and The United Plaza Building (30 S. 17th St.).

"Our relationship with The Chemical Heritage Foundation has allowed us to further expand The Hub portfolio," states Bill Decker, Co-founder, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Hub. "We look forward to providing top-level service and experience to our new partner while continuing to raise the bar for meeting and event facilities nationwide."

Located at 315 Chestnut Street in the heart of Philadelphia's historic Old City neighborhood, the conference center accommodates meetings and events for 2 to 400 guests with its broad range of fully equipped, all-inclusive rooms. Similar to The Hub's two other facilities, the CHF Conference Center will feature world-class management and support services along with the sophisticated cuisine of Starr Events.
