Located at the confluence of three sparkling rivers and banked on all sides by green hills, Pittsburgh has earned its reputation as one of America’s “most livable” cities. Whether jogging the tree-lined riverfront trails; taking in the sports action of the Steelers, Penguins or Pirates; discovering a world-class art scene; or exploring the city's jazz legacies, there is something to entertain everyone. Long a center for the production of steel, iron and glass, Pittsburgh’s economy is now driven by technology, medicine, finance and tourism.
Located halfway between New York City and Chicago, Pittsburgh is a short flight or a day's drive for more than 70 percent of the U.S. population and 50 percent of the Canadian population. Air travelers arrive at Pittsburgh International Airport, named "Best U.S Airport" by Condé Nast Traveler.
For your meetings, Pittsburgh's green-certified David L. Lawrence Convention Center is considered one of the most beautiful convention centers in the world. By definition, this Center will be "green" because of the building's design as well as its environmentally friendly operation. The Center features walls of windows, filling 236,900 square feet of column-free space with brilliant sunlight. Outside, expansive terraces and balconies open to dazzling river views and cityscapes.
