Conference Facilities

The new David L. Lawrence Convention Center was completed in September 2003 and brings an elegant, remarkably practical, and environmentally friendly structure to Pittsburgh’s riverfront. The facility is the first certified and largest ‘green’ convention center in the U.S. It holds a Gold LEED Rating from the U.S. Green Building Council and contains such features as natural ventilation, natural day lighting, water conservation and energy efficiency.
