KOP Beerfest Welcomes Largest Crowds to Date
Another successful King of Prussia Beerfest Royale is in the books!
The beer was flowing, the music was playing, the food was cooking and fun was being had by all at King of Prussia Beerfest Royale under grand tents at King of Prussia Mall on October 3 and 5. It was a weekend to remember and just like that, the taps are closed and another successful event is in the books.

The September 19 event shed light on important projects and industries in KOP

Special thank you to our panelists: Elizabeth Smith, Director of Strategic Planning & Analysis of SEPTA, who provided an update on  King of Prussia Rail and layed out upcoming milestones for this transformative project; Adrian Ponsen, Director of Market Analytics for Philadelphia of CoStar, who shared key findings from his regional analysis of the  multifamily residential market; and Brian O'Neill, Chairman, Founder & CEO of MLP Ventures, who shared his vision for  The Discovery Labs, a $500M healthcare, life sciences and technology co-working community in Renaissance Business Park. 


AROUND TOWN

Gateway Signage Lights up for a Cause
The meaning behind the ever-changing gateway sign colors
King of Prussia District installed six monument signs in 2012 and 2013 to mark important gateways to the King of Prussia community. Five of the signs run on electricity, while the sign at the Bridgeport border is powered with solar panels. Not only have attachments and plantings around these monuments changed over time, but the LED light bars on each side are programmed to change colors throughout the year. This colorful and energy efficient system gives King of Prussia District the opportunity to recognize tremendous causes and salute important groups in our community.
