Valley Forge Casino Resort is located in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. Meetings Today spoke with Lani Baird to get an inside look at the property and what it and its surrounding area can offer up for visiting groups.
How does the property invest in group success?
As we like to say, “The house is yours.”
We want our guests to feel right at home, which includes providing excellent customer service and continually enhancing areas important to our group clientele.
After completing a $6 million renovation of 154 Casino Tower guest rooms and suites in 2017, we followed up in January 2018 by completely renovating the Grand Ballroom, one of our most popular meeting spaces.
Offering 100,000 square feet of flexible space and 479 guest rooms, we position not just as a casino-resort, but as a fully fledged convention facility.
Our convention clients, many returning annually or bi-annually, are family, and this is their home away from home.
What are some of your key selling attributes?
Ideal for groups across a broad spectrum of sizes, types and industries, we appeal especially to groups seeking more than just conference space and guest rooms. They want experiences outside of the meeting.
We frequently hear from clients about declining attendance at other locations, and their desire for a new option that is accessible within the region and provides reasons for attendees to travel.
We offer solutions for both. Just 30 minutes from Philadelphia International Airport and near several major roadways, we are easy to reach. Our wide-ranging amenities include multiple dining, nightlife and entertainment options, and our world-class casino.
Unique reception venues such our poolside beach club Valley Beach enhance the convention offering, along with our calendar of regularly changing weekly and monthly events.
It’s all about creating a total experience for our group clients.
Does that include extending the experience off-campus?
Absolutely. Adjacent to the Valley Forge National Historical Park and minutes from the King of Prussia Mall, our dynamic location is a major advantage.
Recognizing that our conventioneers, who come from across the U.S. and around the world, want to see the sites beyond our four walls, we have great partnerships with area attractions and the Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board. Their wonderful assistance to groups includes connecting them with attractions throughout Montgomery County.
Clients are blown away by the area’s scenic beauty and extensive attractions and activities.
