2/5/2015
Hargrove, Inc. was named the general contractor for the International Theological Pastoral Congress of the World Meeting of Families – Philadelphia 2015 (WMOF). Providing a full-range of materials and services for the WMOF Marketplace and its exhibitors, along with registration and entrance units, graphic design and production, signage, carpeting and services for show management, Hargrove was selected as a subcontractor by Talley Management Group (TMG), which oversees the planning and execution of the entire Congress.

This will be the first time that the WMOF will be held in the United States. The triennial global event will be held in Philadelphia, PA beginning Tuesday, September 22 and will conclude Sunday, September 27.

The WMOF draws participants from more than 150 countries around the globe, with the focal point of the meeting being the International Theological – Pastoral Congress. The Congress will feature an Opening Celebration on Tuesday, September 22 followed by 4 days of events within the Pennsylvania Convention Center, including daily Mass, General Sessions, Breakout Sessions; and a WMOF Marketplace, which will feature exhibitions, demonstrations and various family-friendly activities.

The event will culminate with a pastoral visit by Pope Francis to Philadelphia, which is anticipated for Saturday, September 26 and Sunday, September 27. Detailed plans for Pope Francis’ visit are not yet finalized, but are expected to include participation in the Festival of Families and a Papal Mass, both of which will be held on The Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
