While 2021, like its predecessor, offered numerous challenges with constantly changing protocols and the continued impact of the pandemic, the King of Prussia District business community continued to inspire with ingenuity, compassion, and partnership, writes Shauna Sanchez for visitkop.com.
In 2021, the King of Prussia District focused on recovery and helping the business community as best as possible while keeping its own projects on track.
It also brought back the first of its in-person events since 2019.
The programmatic highlights of the past twelve months include KOP Takeout Takeover, the direct response to restrictions on indoor dining, an adapted King of Prussia Restaurant Week and KOP Shops for CHOP, and a Hospitality Hiring Fair, which helped local businesses find workers amid a labor shortage.
First Responder Appreciation Week recognized UMT’s, police, fire, and EMS staff and volunteers, while the KOP Insiders blog series served as a great tool to promote King of Prussia as a great place to do business.
KOP District also introduced the Placemaking Partner Initiative – a program providing matching funds – to create placemaking projects, active spaces, and sustainable transportation improvements on commercial properties that are open to the public.
