Our First Event In Pittsburgh!
Yesterday, 250 joined us at the Pittsburgh Fairmont for our first-ever event in "The Town Formerly Known as Steel City." The city is booming (and not just because the Pirates have clinched a winning season for the first time in 20 years). Downtown office vacancy has been cut to 6% from 14% in '09. Panelists say the story can be "read on the rooftops," since so many new companies have invigorated downtown with both their presence and giant signage. And hope is high for tech: Google has mushroomed its original presence at Carnegie Mellon to 600 employees and 130k SF, with hopes for much more.
