Annual Meeting - Hotel & Transportation
The 2014 GWA Symposium will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania!
It's easy to get to Pittsburgh. Located halfway between New York City and Chicago, Pittsburgh is a short flight or a day's drive for more than 70 percent of the U.S. population and 50 percent of the Canadian population. Air travelers arrive at Pittsburgh International Airport, named "Best U.S Airport" by Condé Nast Traveler.
Once in Pittsburgh, you are greeted by a city founded at the confluence of three rivers and steeped in history. Whether jogging the tree-lined riverfront trails; taking in the action of the Steelers, Penguins or Pirates; discovering a world-class art scene; or exploring the city's jazz legacies, there is something to entertain everyone.
Pittsburgh's green-certified David L. Lawrence Convention Center is considered one of the most beautiful convention centers in the world. By definition, your event at this Center will be "green" because of the building's design as well as its environmentally friendly operation. The Center features walls of windows, filling 236,900 square feet of column-free space with brilliant sunlight. Outside, expansive terraces and balconies open to dazzling river views and cityscapes.
