My daughter had her work conference recently and I was fortunate enough to participate in the coordination of it. Michelene did a tremendous job planning everything. The conference was entitled “Strength in Numb3rs” and was for the Uzuri Think Tank at Robert Morris University.
The speakers and the break out sessions were focused on diversity in fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). The presentations were excellent and beautifully inspirational.
I cannot say enough about the Fairmont. They were superior in every aspect of their service and planning. We served a Pittsburgh style buffet on the first full day of the conference, complete with perogies, Primanti style sandwiches, Pittsburgh salad (with fries and cheese), and these delicious burnt almond cupcakes.
Cuttings Flower and Garden in Sewickley provided the stunning centerpieces, filled with fresh spring flowers. The entire room smelled heavenly as we entered for dinner on the first night.
If you are considering a conference or event in Pittsburgh, I encourage you to check with the Fairmont. The planners and wait staff could not do enough for us. To have an event where attendees talk about it long after it is over, is quite an accomplishment. I think this certainly was one of those events.
