VisitPITTSBURGH received the 2013 Gold Service Award from Meetings & Conventions magazine for providing quality service to clients in the meetings and convention industry.

Meetings & Conventions' readers, representing the elite in both the corporate and association markets, made their selections based on key criteria, including: professionalism of staff; support on hotels and site inspections; assistance with ground transportation planning; guidance on local attractions; and liaison with local vendors and services.

In recognizing VisitPITTSBURGH, a 19-year winner of the Gold Service Award, Meetings & Conventions states: "The 2013 Gold Service winners impressed the M&C's demanding experienced readers as they excelled in many valuable areas of service and commitment."

"VisitPITTSBURGH prides itself on providing top-level service to meeting planners and conventioneers. This award is noteworthy because it comes directly from the convention trade publication's readers who are choosing the best of the best," said Craig Davis, president and CEO of VisitPITTSBURGH.

VisitPITTSBURGH is featured in Meetings & Conventions’ Gold Awards issue published in November.

As the official tourism promotion agency for Allegheny County, VisitPITTSBURGH is dedicated to generating convention, trade show and leisure travel business for the Pittsburgh region.
