Well layed out, easy to navigate

It's a convention center! Relatively new, well layed out and easy to navigate. All in all it is a very comfortable place to so whatever it is that you're there for!

I could not believe how rude the concession staff was. A number of younger kids were in line (we were there for a cheer competition) and one woman was so rude and nasty. When I asked her to please stop yelling at everyone, her response was whatever.

We were here for a tournament in July. It's convenient and easy to get to from downtown and the colleges. There's plenty of parking in the attached garage. Vey clean, well-lit, spacious interior. There's food for sale in the main exhibit hall. Nice views of the river and bridge.

We visited in late winter/early Spring for the Tekko Convention. The place is HUGE. A parking garage is attached for convenience. Great views of the waterfront.

Beautifully located along the banks of the Allegheny River. Spacious, modern, clean. Main exhibitors hall did get chilly.

I have not been inside of this huge building, but wanted to report that the very large parking lot is convenient to the cultural district and within walking distance to both the Consol Energy Center and the PNC Park. When I say close, I mean within a mile or so, but it provides a good walk along a great deal... More

I was here for 4 days for ReplayFX and the Pinburgh Pinball Match Play World Championships. The David L. Lawrence is a very attractive convention hall with a multitude of halls to meet all needs. There are lots of convenient washrooms and drinking fountains.

Attended a political rally here last weekend. There were thousands of people, and I feel as though it was poorly planned. When you are expecting that many people, there should be seating available, especially when you stand outside in line for over 4 hours.
