Pittsburgh: Topping Everyone's List

Looking for a big city with a small city feel? A city that is gaining the reputation of being a high tech city with many cool neighborhoods? A city that has a cutting-edge culinary scene where you can still find a down home meal? A city that offers both traditional branded hotels and unique boutique hotels? You can find all of that and more in one of the hottest cities in the United States, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Pittsburgh has everything you need to plan an unforgettable experience.

First, it’s accessible. Located halfway between New York City and Chicago, Pittsburgh is within 500 miles of more than half the U.S. population and less than a 90-minute flight from 50 percent of North America’s population. It’s under six hours by car or train to nine states, Washington, D.C. and Canada. 

Another reason your group should meet in Pittsburgh is that it has amazing venues all around the city. The Platinum LEED certified David L. Lawrence Convention Center was built with business in mind. It is a remarkably designed building, elegant in form and exceptional in function. From PNC Park and the Roberto Clemente Museum to elegant Heinz Hall and The Andy Warhol Museum, there are many one-of-a-kind, off-site venues for planning the perfect event.

Also, your guests can stay right in the heart of the city, making it easy to attend meetings and enjoy the attractions.   Whether your attendees prefer an established brand like Omni, Westin or Marriott or a new boutique property like the Districkt Hotel, a former Salvation Army headquarters transformed into a clean and contemporary look designed as a tribute to Pittsburgh and its neighborhoods. Everyone can have just what they want.

And speaking of attractions, city’s Cultural District is home to nine world class theaters nestled among eclectic art galleries, shops, dining and more. World-class symphony, ballet, Broadway, drama, dance, opera, and cinema—are all conveniently located just steps away.

Pittsburgh has everything to create a unique and inspiring experience for your guests, welcoming residents, innovative spaces, spectacular hotels, breathtaking views and world-renowned dining. Your guest won’t just attend an event, they will have an experience they won’t soon forget.
