Most conference activities will take place at The Hub Commerce Square, located in the Commerce Square center between 20th Street and 21st Street on Market Street.
As you stand on Market Street and look at the Commerce Square complex, the Hub will be to your right, in Two Commerce Square. Please enter through the main plaza (outside courtyard) Commerce Building #2, right side. Once you enter there will be a main Security desk and to the left of that, a smaller Hub entry greet desk. Please stop at that desk and mention either the Hub or your group’s name. Our greeter will give you access through the turnstiles and direct you to the set of elevators which take you the 2nd floor. Once off the elevators, turn left: the Hub is in Suite 210. Signs and friendly Hub staff will direct you to the Media Consortium meeting rooms.

The Pen and Pencil Club is one of the country’s oldest surviving membership-based journalism clubs. P&P serves working members of the press and the community that supports them. The club is located between 15th and 16th Street, about a 15 minute walk from the Hub, and just 4 blocks from the Club Quarters hotel. This no-host bar event is sponsored by ONA Philly. Thanks ONA!
It may still be possible to get a room there at market price. Check here.
While Club Quarters is centrally located for TMC conference activities, no conference-related events will actually happen at the hotel. So if you still need to book a room, try hotels.com, priceline, or airbnb.com — most convenient will be a room in “Center City” Philadelphia. Ideally you will be within 3-4 blocks of Market St, between 13th St. and 21st St. See you in Philly!
