Where should you stay? Where will you dine? What type of entertainment is available? When the David L. Lawrence Convention Center is the site for your meeting or trade show, you will find practically everything you want from bagels to Bach right in the area. Located in a sophisticated urban setting, the Convention Center is only minutes from cuisine that satisfies every appetite and comfortable accommodations.


The $9.5 million Convention Center Riverfront Plaza is located along the Allegheny River at the base of the Convention Center’s Water Feature on 10th Street. The Plaza is a portion of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail which connects Point State Park to The Strip District.
