This place is awesome. So huge. Meeting rooms were nice size and comfortable. Only downside was would of been nice to have soda or water machines in the building.

Handmade Exhibit (Dec. 7 - 8)
Dec 2019
Wow! This was a surprisingly beautiful array of artists and craftspeople. As an artist myself, I have visited innumerable expos over the years and this was the best! The outstanding quality of the work, the ingenuity of design and substantive nature of the product components, ranging from fabric, to glass, wood, metal and other ingenious substances, made this a true joy. I wish I had known about it years ago. Though some items could be considered expensive, the unique nature and obvious quality of them make the cost reasonable. AND ADMISSION IS FREE!!! (Parking at the Convention Center was a flat rate, but with 5 of us, not overwhelming.)

Terrible Place
Dec 2019 • Friends
Honestly, the Handmade Arcade is great. But find another venue. Convention Center is horrible. Food is awful!!!!! Chicken fingers, dirty pop lines, lousy. The floor is filthy. Next to no employees. Ugly, dirty place and horrible parking. The outside is also filthy. Go and look at other convention centers. Clean and nice. Also, looking at it from the road is also hard on the eyes. Also. Very unorganized. I will avoid it in the future. People like to shop, stop, sit and eat. Horrible place.

Great Venue to see RVs
Oct 2019
Went to the RV show a month ago and loved the experience although the advantage of being able to actually enter so many different RVs made deciding on one a little more difficult! Of course, when making a choice before buying a big ticket item it is great that one can see so many in one place at one time!.

River View, Typical Convention Center
Nov 2019
What's good: river view, cat walk over the large trade show floor, good audio visual in ballrooms and class rooms, sweet lady in the souvenir shop, downtown location. Not so great: balconies overlooking the river taken over by smokers, confusing layout and signs, not enough food options or trash cans.

Poor design, long food lines, LOUSY FOOD, & not enough elevators just about sums up my experience. The mgmt needs to be gone and someone who knows how to manage a trade show needs to be hired. I was at a large trade show and they only had ONE food area open per floor. It took approximately 25-30 mins to place an order for what most would consider a step above dog food. The food is TERRIBLE! Bring your own! All in all I don’t have much good to say about the Lawrence CC. Hope I don’t have to come back!

Very pleasantly surprised with the way the convention center handled a small class. Have only ever been here for a large conventions. The service was still impeccable for the small class setting.

Typical Convention Center
Jan 2019
Very spacious. Ample parking. But the food is hideous. And overpriced. Really? You pay to go to the exhibition, convention, etc., but overpay for bad food. And how about more selection on the food.

Very Clean, Nice Convention Center

We attended a multi-day event here and were impressed with the facility. A buffet style banquet was delicious. The restrooms were clean.

Great Location and Staff
Aug 2019 • Business
I visited the convention center for about a week while attending the SHARE event in August. I have nothing but great things to say about the convention center and the staff.

The convention center is beautiful. It’s high tech and they are currently doing improvements to their rooftop. The location has many outlooks where you can go outside and have your pick of many beautiful views. The views include the skyline, bridges, PNC Park, etc.

While attending, the staff catered to our every need. They were great helping us find rooms, restrooms, exits, etc. The staff also provided coffee, snacks, and a lunch. The food was delicious and the presentation was done well! Funny enough, one of the staff members took a picture of their presentation work. It was great to see how proud they are of their work.

If your company is looking for a place to hold its event in the Pittsburgh area or you’re attending any kind of event here you will love this place!

Tip: there are many places to walk around during breaks if you need it. There’s also many restaurants in walking distance to the convention center.
