Pittsburgh Ambassadors

Show the New Pittsburgh to Your Colleagues! There’s never been a better time to plan a meeting in Pittsburgh.

More than 90% of conventions that take place in Pittsburgh are booked because someone who knows and loves Pittsburgh made a personal contact with a meeting planner or key decision maker.

Local pride plays a huge part in people selecting the City, and Meet PITTSBURGH hopes that you will champion the cause of bringing meeting and convention business to Pittsburgh. We ask you to contact your employer and the organizations and associations you are affiliated with and encourage them to bring their next meeting or convention to Pittsburgh. You will be making an invaluable contribution, both to the local economy and to our community-wide effort to tell the world why Pittsburgh is an ideal destination for business and pleasure.
