    It’s no secret that Greater Philadelphia is exceptionally well positioned to be the future home of Amazon’s second headquarters. We know there are a lot of questions buzzing around this once-in-lifetime opportunity. The transformational potential of this project – on the economy, housing market, job growth, image and reputation, and more – across our 11 county community of northern Delaware, southern New Jersey, and Southeastern Pennsylvania, is remarkable.

    Please join PPRA for an inside look at our regional responses for Amazon HQ2 and what landing this business would mean for Greater Philadelphia. We will be joined by some of the key players responsible for putting together the proposals, campaigns, and messaging behind the bids and a journalist who is helping to fully assess its potential impact.

    • Louis Cappelli, Camden County Freeholder and Chairman
