Networking is the most valuable. The sessions, especially those focusing on international work, are ones that I don’t find at other conferences, given the high quality of research presented. This is a great conference to be inspired and energized by our colleagues.

I like the diversity of topics, the gathering of experts, the topics were very interesting.

As this was my first in many attempts to attend. The focus and content were more than I expected.

I liked most of the presentation topics and that so many significant researchers attended the conference and presented. I mainly go to hear about current research, network, and share my research with others.

This was my first time attending and it was a great place to connect with Extension colleagues throughout the country and see what types of research projects are happening. I really enjoyed the networking aspects of the conference as well as the location.


Looking for some fresh air?  Enjoy the 36-acre, lush urban park located directly across the street from the Wyndham Grand Hotel, the conference hotel and meeting space.

With more than 3 million visitors a year, the park serves as a tangible reminder of Pittsburgh’s enduring importance in our nation’s history. Point State Park commemorates and protects the strategic and historic heritage of the area during the French and Indian War (1754 – 1763). It is also Pittsburgh’s premier public gathering place, the centerpiece of Three Rivers Park, Pittsburgh’s 13-mile riverfront park system, and the final downtown destination of the historic Great Allegheny Passage.

Features in the park include:

  • The Fort Pitt Museum, located in historic Point State Park, is a two-floor, 12,000-square-foot museum that tells the story of Western Pennsylvania`s pivotal role during the French & Indian War, the American Revolution, and as the birthplace of Pittsburgh.
  • The former Riverfront Promenades along the Allegheny and Ohio rivers were in bad shape after years of wear and tear and flooding. Renovated in 2011, the Promenades now feature two new amphitheaters, cleaned and refurbished bleachers, paving, handicap and bike access, benches and lighting.
  • Designed by Pittsburgh landscape architects Charles M. Stotz and Ralph E. Griswold, Point State Park was completed and dedicated in 1974. It is now one of the nation`s outstanding historical parks and tourist attractions and has been designated as a National Historic Landmark.
  • The Point State Park Fountain opened in 1974 and immediately became a famous symbol of Pittsburgh’s strength. The Fountain’s welcoming column of water soared high above Point State Park, highlighting the unique geographical confluence of the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio Rivers and the importance of water to the area.
  • The Fort Pitt Block House was built in 1764 as a small defensive redoubt and is the only surviving structure of Fort Pitt, a key British fortification during the French and Indian War which also served as the western headquarters of the Continental Army during the American Revolution.
