GlobalPittsburgh Annual Dinner - Dec. 17 at LeMont - Your Passport to Pittsburgh; Making the Western Pennsylvania Connection - Register Today!

Join us on Monday, Dec. 17, 2012 for the GlobalPittsburgh Annual Dinner to learn why the eyes of the world are focused on the Pittsburgh region as a global center for energy innovation, education, technology, environmental research and business.


Now is your chance to learn more about the many benefits we provide to the regional community and economy, while having fun, networking with friends old and new, eating delicious food, enjoying a stunning view of the Pittsburgh skyline, getting your picture taken in a free photo booth, and winning valuable prizes at the same time. We're calling it Your Passport to Pittsburgh - Making the Western Pennsylvania Connection.

This year we'll be livening things up a little. You will have the opportunity to meet and learn from the valuable resources in the Pittsburgh region, just as our delegations of global leaders do when they come here as part of the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program.

Upon arrival, you will receive a GlobalPittsburgh Passport similar to the itinerary we prepare for our visiting delegations. You will stroll around the room and engage with some of the same leaders from the region who have met with international visitors in the past year.

You will eat some of the best food in town from gourmet serving stations, see old friends and meet new ones, converse with some of the top experts in fields including energy, engineering, sustainability and higher education, and enjoy a cultural performance. Bill Flanagan of the Allegheny Conference will be your local “tour guide” as emcee for the evening. At the end of the evening, your Passport will give you a chance to win several valuable prizes.

Just like our visiting delegations, you will have a chance to interact with some of the host families who regularly welcome visitors into their homes. When you depart for home, you will have learned something about Pittsburgh and made some important connections that will benefit you in the future. This promises to be an Annual Dinner to remember. We look forward to seeing you.
