Ms. Polly TROTTENBERG, Assistant Secretary for Transportation policy, U.S. Department of Transportation
Mr. Joseph SZABO, Administrator of FRA - Federal Railroad Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation

 

The Grand Hall used to be the Reading Railroad Terminal, built in 1893. It was a monument to the extraordinary railroad wealth of the time, designed to bring trains into a spectacular train shed with a single span arched roof. After an underground rail link was built in 1984, the terminal was rendered obsolete and was closed in 1985. When it was proposed as the site for the new Pennsylvania Convention Center, city architects took great pains to preserve its extraordinary historial elements. The striking train shed arch stayed, and the headhouse (the passenger station and company headquarters) was incorporated into the Center and the attached Marriott Hotel.

The dress code is business attire.
