Downtown Partnership Offers Party for One Young World Participants

A night of music, bocce, and food awaits attendees of One Young World as they leave the David L. Lawrence Convention Center tonight.

The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP) is organizing the One Young World Welcome Exchange.

“We have a beautiful downtown. I was lucky enough to get to go to the welcome ceremony,” said PDP President and CEO Jeremy Waldrup. “What they were saying was ‘What’s your initial reaction?’ ‘Everyone in Pittsburgh is super-friendly; your city’s beautiful and very clean.’ And those are incredible first impressions to have.”

Waldrup said the Cultural District will be alive tonight with live music in Katz Plaza, a Pop Up Bocce Court, food trucks lining Penn Ave, and a small sample of a gallery crawl.

The event begins at 8 p.m. and is open to the public.  Waldrup said it would be a excelent opportuity for Pittsburghs to meet some of the international visitors while at the same time enjoying the Cultural District.
