The Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) hosed its annual Philadelphia Phillies Partner Tailgate in May. The PHLCVB team was joined by more than 200 representatives from its partner organizations for a tailgate and networking at Xfinity Live! Philadelphia before heading to Citizens Bank Park to watch the Phillies’ win over the Texas Rangers. Guests enjoyed ballpark fare, games, and raffle giveaways of autographed memorabilia.

The tailgate is an annual signature event hosted by the PHLCVB as a way to honor and express appreciation to all partners of PHLCVB.

Darryl Irizarry, director of partnership and strategic alliances for PHLCVB says, “It was a great opportunity for our team to have some in-person touchpoints with partners and it provides attendees a fun and relaxed atmosphere for networking and socializing.”

The event included food, drinks, music by a DJ, and a raffle of Phillies memorabilia and merchandise. PHLCVB President and CEO Gregg Caren and Director of Partnership and Strategic Alliances, Darryl Irizarry each made informal thank you remarks and expressed their gratitude for our engaged partners.

Irizarry says, “It’s a fun opportunity to get Philadelphia’s tourism industry together to enjoy a beloved Philly sports team. Always a plus when the Phillies win, too!”
