Talley Management Group, Inc. Selected as Lead Logistics Partner for
World Meeting of Families - Philadelphia 2015
September 25, 2014 (Mt. Royal, NJ) – Talley Management Group, Inc. (TMG) today announced it has been selected as the lead logistics partner for the theological/pastoral conference of the Eighth World Meeting of Families, which will be held September 22-25, 2015 in Philadelphia, PA. Selected by the World Meeting of Families – Philadelphia 2015, the independent 501(c)(3) organization entrusted to plan the event on behalf of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, TMG will manage and oversee multiple projects related to conference planning and event execution.
The 2015 meeting will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center and the theme from which all conference content will flow is “Love is our mission: the family fully alive.” More than 10,000 delegates from 150 nations are expected to participate in the four-day theological/pastoral conference. Traditionally, the closing of the World Meeting of Families conference is marked by the arrival of the Holy Father in the host city. While there has not been confirmation of his attendance by the Vatican, it is widely hoped that Pope Francis will visit Philadelphia next September in conjunction with the World Meeting of Families.
Created by Saint John Paul II in 1994 to explore the critical role the family plays in society, the World Meeting of Families provides opportunities for dynamic conversation about the blessings and challenges that occur in all families.
“We are so honored that TMG has been selected to manage this special event, which will give the world an opportunity to see Philadelphia and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia at its very best,” said Gregg Talley, President and CEO of Talley Management Group, Inc.
