Pittsburgh's new and larger Convention Center still needs some improvement to bring it up to ones in other cities. The building is beautiful (and larger than the old one), but beyond that, it still leaves one drained at the end of the day. Parking for most events is quite expensive. The prices for snacks and small sandwiches is very expensive. It becomes prohibitive for any sized family to attend most events there. Convention business is down even though this is a new larger facility. I say bring the prices down, improve customer relations, and perhaps attendance will also pick up.
