Attendees to every one of Pittsburgh's six summertime conventions are expected to generate about $1,000 each, says Jason Fulvi, executive vice president for VisitPittsburgh.
The group expects 40,000 to flood the Steel City for convention season, bringing in about $40 million total.
“We have more conventions and larger conventions than ever before," Fulvi says. "So (guests) will be able to really partake in the different activities, festivals and attractions that we have."
Pittsburgh should be a gracious host.
