FROM STEEL TO SUSTAINABLE
The David L. Lawrence Convention Center is the world's first platinum LEED® Certified Convention Center. LEED® Platinum Certification is much more than recycling the traditional items of plastics, aluminum and glass; they also recycle the “not-so” traditional items of batteries, sod, water and food.
In addition to the DLCC’s sustainable operating features , our registration company, Convention Data Services , will be implementing their own green initiatives by using sustainable and environmentally responsible products made from biodegradable, compostable, recyclable, renewable, or reusable raw materials for all of the registration badges and holders.
GIVING BACK TO U.S. VETERANS
Continuing METALCON's 20-year history of "giving back ," this year's fundraising efforts will benefit the Veterans Leadership Program of Western Pennsylvania (VLP) , a 501c(3) veteran-centric nonprofit organization headquartered in Pittsburgh. Donate onsite or click HERE to donate today!

PITTSBURGH - DID YOU KNOW?
From the start, the David L. Lawrence Convention Center was intended to embody the highest standard of sustainability. Building materials were strategically chosen to minimize environmental impacts. Nearly one tenth of the total building materials used, including steel, aluminum, drywall, and ceiling tiles, was made from post-consumer recycled content. Stainless steel was chosen as the roofing material as a nod to Pittsburgh’s industrial history and because of its high recycled content, but it serves another green function as well. Instead of causing an “urban heat island effect,” the Center has a highly-reflective roof cover that prevents this excess heat from accumulating.
