More than ever before, Pittsburgh continues to surprise conventioneers and visitors. The physical beauty of the city, the wealth of art and culture, the opportunities to enjoy Pittsburgh’s trails and rivers are combined to create a memorable experience. Add to that the attractiveness of the David L. Lawrence Convention Center - the first convention center in America to receive both Gold and Platinum LEED certification – and you’ve got a superb meeting destination.
In fact, Pittsburgh was recently rated as the #1 Food City in America by Zagat, and named among the "Best Places to Travel in 2016" by Travel + Leisure magazine. With over 5,000 hotel rooms within walking distance of the Convention Center and more than 27,000 rooms available in Allegheny County, you’ll find a wide variety of hotel options to suit every taste and travel budget. And meeting attendees can enjoy a performance at one of the nine theaters downtown after dining at any of the scores of great restaurants, all within the 14-block area of the Pittsburgh Cultural District.
