Welcome to Pittsburgh which has a population of 305,841, and it’s the second-largest city in the state of Pennsylvania. Our I-HEEP Conference will begin Sunday morning with a Golf outing at the Pittsburgh Quicksilver golf course which any guests or delegates are welcome to attend. If you are not a golfer, then our conference staff can provide you with information for the many tourist attractions that Pittsburgh has to offer. On your own, you could visit such places as Station Square Express, the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium, the Duquesne and Monongahela Inclines, the famous Falling Water or any one of the historical museums in the city. But be sure to join us for our Ice Breaker Reception Sunday evening.
