Welcome to the ‘Burgh presidents, officials, dignitaries n’at!

Welcome to the ‘Burgh yinz dignitaries n’at! Pittsburgh will soon have the honor of playing host to the world’s most powerful leaders on September 24th and 25th!

According to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, Pittsburgh was selected because it’s a great example of a region that has reinvented itself. “It’s an area that has seen its share of economic woes in the past, but because of foresight and investment is now renewed, giving birth to renewed industries that are creating the jobs of the future,” Gibbs said. “And I think the president believes it’d be a good place to highlight some of that stuff.”

This city has a lot of be proud of: its healthcare industry, libraries and educational institutions, robots and technology, pancakes, as well as green building initiatives. Pittsburgh boasts the largest certified “green” convention center in the world, awarded the Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) by the U.S. Green Building Council.  Pittsburgh is a natural choice. 

Congratulations yinz guys!
