Forbes: “30 Under 30” Summit to Stay in Philly

After October conference, magazine makes permanent home here.

Apparently Philadelphia did a good job hosting the Forbes “30 Under 30” summit back in October: The magazine announced today that Philly will serve as the annual event’s permanent home.

“Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Summit made a four-day debut here in October, and Forbes officials toyed with the idea of moving the fledgling confab to a different city each year,” the Inquirer reports this morning. “The decision to stay in Philadelphia was made after several months of negotiations between Mayor Nutter and top Forbes officials.”

City Hall won’t offer financial support to the summit, the Inky says, but it will help Forbes connect with corporations and other possible sponsors for the event. Last October’s summit reportedly attracted 2,000 people.
