Pittsburgh's Convention Center is a very nice facility for conferences and trade shows. There are many surrounding hotels and even more great restaurants in the Cultural District, Strip District and in Market Square.

We came here to pick up our bibs for a race. Parking was easy and convenient and right next Point State Park. The waterfalls here with the different changing colored lights were very nice. Highly recommend you come and visit if you're in Pittsburgh.

Parking for an event is a nightmare. I had to park blocks away and wait in long lines to get in for special events. It is a nice Convention Center but ill planned.
