Largest Competitive Intelligence Conference in 2012 to be Held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Hosted by Strategic & Competitive Intelligence Professionals (SCIP)

The Philadelphia Downtown Marriott location ensures that the Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professional’s conference continues to grow and prosper as the largest annual gathering of competitive intelligence professionals in the world.

Philadelphia, PA, July 14, 2011 --( The SCIP 2012 International Annual Conference & Exhibition will be held at the Philadelphia Downtown Marriott, May 14-17, 2012 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The venue has the unique ability to give this program room to grow, in a geographic location that has excellent access for members both nationally and internationally. In addition, Philadelphia is a wonderful and historic city that will allow the attendees to participate in a wide range of activities personally and professionally.

SCIP also welcomes back Proactive Worldwide as their Strategic Partner for SCIP 2012. Through this partnership, SCIP is able to leverage Proactive's input and decades of CI experience during the content design process for the 2012 program.

The facility has a great exhibition hall, room for up to 12 concurrent sessions, a separate general meeting room and a facility that can handle a seated lunch for over 700 attendees. In addition, the facility has just been renovated for up to date connectivity, lighting, message boards, and several unique venues for special events. Overall, the location will work very well for SCIP's membership base, as many in the northeast corridor can arrive by car, plane or train, and Philly has a very robust international airport.

This is one of the best fits for the SCIP program, allowing members the opportunity to interact with peers and colleagues. Members will be pleased with this facility.

Please feel free to reach out to events (at) with any questions.
