PA Convention Center must replace new lighting system

    It’ll be awhile before the Pennsylvania Convention Center impresses visitors the way it intends to. The center’s lighting system at the Broad Street entrance needs to be replaced.


    The Philadelphia Business Journal reports the LED display at the front of the center’s $700 million addition have a manufacturing defect that prevents them from coming on properly.

    The manufacturer will provide the new lights, but they won’t go in until the slower convention season this summer.
