City & State reaches politicians and policymakers at the local, state and federal level, as well as leaders in the private sector across Pennsylvania’s 67 counties. Among the political influencers in our subscriber base is 95 percent of the legislature, most of the people on our Power 100 lists, and decision-makers in Pennsylvania's most important sectors like Eds and Meds, biotech and construction. 

Here are some examples of how your organization can work with us to educate and inform our audience, participate as a thought leader, and improve brand awareness.

Special Reports

City & State is proud to present our monthly series of in-depth Special Reports, each of which will be a deep dive on a policy-related topic of importance to our readers. We will interview public sector leaders, elected officials and policymakers to get the latest updates on topics like education, workforce development, AI and technology. In addition to advertising in the print and digital versions of the report, our clients can participate through sponsored content, thought-leader Q&As and digital branding.


City & State produces a variety of policy summits, networking receptions and award galas throughout the year featuring industry experts, citywide and statewide officials and community leaders discussing current events and issues of interest in Pennsylvania.

Custom Events, such as The Future of Healthcare in PA offer private sector companies the option to create a policy-related breakfast or full-day summit that engages their C-Level executives with PA's top government leaders. City & State PA provides full-service event management, from conception through completion, including speaker invitations, branding, marketing, PR, and staffing.

City & State publishes a monthly print and digital magazine covering the politics, policies and personalities that make up Pennsylvania's government. We deliver in-depth analysis, timely features, probing Q&As and investigative reports on the industries most impacted by legislation and regulation. In addition, each issue of City & State includes a deep-dive special report on one of the most pressing issues impacting the commonwealth.

Each awards list is also celebrated with a special event to recognize the honorees.
