Pittsburgh is a thriving city with a vibrant community, great restaurants, and many museums; the meeting venue, the Omni William Penn, is centrally located near dozens of bistros, eateries, and shops.

The meeting area offers a variety of geologically interesting venues: excellent examples of the Allegheny Front separating the Valley and Ridge and Appalachian Plateaus Provinces,including terminal Laurentide moraines, as well as oil, gas, coal, aggregates and a wealth of additional natural resources, overprinted with myriad geotechnical hazards.
