PMPI Engage - September/October 2016 - 9

Advertorial FIND PERFECT PLACES AND SPACES IN PITTSBURGH W hen planning a meeting, convention or special event in Pittsburgh, you'll find memorable venues that are ideal for your gathering. Whether it's space for the entire event or a small off-site session, there are plenty of venue spaces - from ballrooms to ballparks, and from historic halls to modern aquariums. Refined Sophistication Looking for elegance? Host your group in a downtown theater in the Cultural District. The opulent Heinz Hall, home to the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, boasts a lovely Garden Cafe, with several unique spaces available in this historic building. Plan an evening at the Benedum Center, a stunning former movie palace with three large reception areas. The charming Byham Theater, Pittsburgh's only remaining turn-of-the-century vaudeville house, has ample (and interesting) reception space. Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History place your guests in the cultural heart of the city's Oakland neighborhood. This grand turn-of-thecentury complex is perfect for everything from dinner parties and receptions to musical performances and lectures. Hip Factor Check out these cool digs for some fun, funky, one-of-a-kind events. These venues leave lasting impressions on guests and have them talking for years. Picture your event at The Andy Warhol Museum, a seven-story tribute to one of Pittsburgh's most famous native sons. Ultra-contemporary, The Warhol provides a glamorous, sophisticated venue for dinners, cocktail parties and lectures. The Mattress Factory, a wildly-cool installation art museum, provides a modern, offbeat feel. Events at Wigle Whiskey, Maggie's Farm Rum and Pittsburgh Winery make attendees want to come back again and again. Historic & Unique Remarkable history abounds in these notable venues. Celebrate in these historic landmarks, and make new history! Built in 1893, Phipps Conservatory & Botanical Gardens is an elegant location for an off-site activity. The Special Events Hall features floor-toceiling glass walls that offer breathtaking views of the Tropical Forest Conservatory and vistas of Pittsburgh landmarks. The beautiful venue was even selected by President Obama to host the opening reception of the 2009 G-20 Summit. Guests immerse themselves in the region's 250-year history at the Senator John Heinz History Center. The non-traditional atmosphere, exciting exhibitions and extraordinary food and beverage service are just a few reasons to consider this delightful venue for your next meeting or event. Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum is a beautifully restored 1910 architectural masterpiece. A world-class auditorium is available, and a grand ballroom provides a stately space for dinners and receptions. Seriously Fun Just entering these spaces brings a smile to guests' faces. For a backdrop of science and fun, put Carnegie Science Center on your list for dinners, seminars and receptions. Private events can include screenings of Omnimax films. Mingle with 600 exotic and endangered birds from around the world, and host your guests at the National Aviary. A variety of spaces are available, from an outdoor patio and rose garden to indoor atriums and classrooms. Waterfalls, tropical fish and exotic species set the scene at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. For an outdoor event, beguile guests in a romantically lit garden setting.
